Couch to 5 K: Week One, Day One

I did it!

I was lucky enough to have the fitness room to myself last night after work, so I wasn't even remotely shy.

Week One involves a 5-minute warm up, and then intervals of 60 seconds of jogging or running and 90 seconds of walking. I did the intervals for the prescribed 20 minutes, then did a 5-minute cool down and a stretch.

I kept a reasonable pace of jogging and walking intervals, but I didn't over-do it. I can even walk this morning. Yay for me!

Someday soon, I'll be that fit, spunky girl running by the river, through the countryside, around medieval cities in Europe (when I go to Germany in June), along the beach. Hotness ensues.
