The interval workout for Week Three is:

5-minute warmup @ 130 BPM
90 seconds @ 140 BPM
90 seconds @ 130 BPM
3 minutes @ 140 BPM
3 minutes @ 130 BPM
90 seconds @ 140 BPM
90 seconds @ 130 BPM
3 minutes @ 140 BPM
4-min. 10-sec. cooldown @ 130 BPM

I saw that and was a little nervous about it. Then I told myself, “You’re a rock star. Suck it up and do it.” So I did.

I’ll admit, the first 3-minute run kinda sucked a little right at the end. By the end of the workout, though, I was ready to keep going. AGAIN! It just seemed like it was over too quickly. I also changed up my route a little bit, and it felt like I added some mileage. Sadly, it was the same distance, 2.25 miles. Which means that I’m doing just under my 5K in 25 minutes, walking and running. It makes me happy to know that I can do this. More importantly, though, I am doing this.
