Zombie 5k Week Three

See My Experience with All The Weeks Here:




I need to figure out how to use google voice to record my thoughts on my drive home, and convert them to text.  I'm working on that.  It's so insanely busy around here, getting ready for football season, and our sons wedding, I am not making the time to write down my thoughts after a work out as frequently as I would like.  
I don't know what is up with the pace?
Using a calculator, I come up with 18.50 a mile.  Better than week two!

44.33 divided by 2.31 is 19.28 - not 23.26?  
I'm not sure why the pace is not calculating correctly.  Unless that's my pace when I hit stop mission?

Overall, I am truly loving this program.  So much.  
I don't like to pay for apps.  I paid $1.99 for this one, and honestly, it is worth so much more.  This is like a $10 app.  Really.  It's worth it.


Two and 1/4 miles in 43 minutes?  I walk faster than that.  It is frustrating for me - last year I was jogging this entire path, this year I can't even jog full sections of the exact same path.  Mostly I am having trouble breathing, but today my muscles hurt too.  I'm starting to think I should start the program over.  I feel like i"m just to the point of fitness where if I did this again now I could maybe do it "right"?  I worry that I walk WAY too much of the free run portions.  I'm feeling certain that at the end of eight weeks there is no way I will be running 3 miles.

But every step in this program is so much better than nothing at all - even if I don't do it well enough, at least I'm trying.  I can always start again once I finish it.  I won't give up - but I do hope I can do better.

Compared to the C25K Program:
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
  • Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
  • Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
  • Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
  • Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)
(at this point, I don't think I could complete the training above.)

  1. Hmmm, not understanding what app you are using but it is definitely off. Have you looked into using something else to track yourself? #wowlinkup

  2. I have to check out that app. Do they have one for biking? I don't run anymore. #wowlinkup and thanks for linking up.
