Couch to 5K update, by @everygoodwish

Last night I completed the 2nd run of the first week of the couch to 5k app. This consisted of a 5 minute warm up walk and 8x 60 second runs which alternate with 7x 90 second walks and then a 5 minute cool down walk. Overall you end up running for 8 minutes in total.

I am really enjoying the app so far and I am enjoying trying to be more active. I have the final run to complete on Friday and then it is on to week 2. The program consists of 9 weeks.

I am really looking forward to seeing how far I can progress with this app.

Hey, Good stuff. I started out running with a couch to five app too. I run a standard 5K every other night now. Interval training that the app uses is perfect and really does work. Once you get to the 5K, and beyond it's still applicable. When you reach the 5K point and can run that consistently then you will be able to continue on to longer distances. You'll start to get a feel for your cadence and pace along with your energy and be able to push further. Keep pushing yourself and enjoy the runs.
