Week 4 in the books.  Looking forward to week 5,  I think the 8 minute jog will really be a challenge.  I'm trying to stick strictly to the schedule as outlined in the Couch to 5K plan, but did try to push through the last 5 minute run today.  I didn't try to jog any faster than the first 5 minutes just tried not to slow down to a shuffle but keep it as a good jog.  I won't claim I was successful but at least I didn't have an involuntary stop like I did last time out.  I was able to improve the distance I covered a little, but that was probably due to the slightly lower temp and the overcast sky.  I carried my wife's iPhone 3Gs instead of my older 3G and the MapMyRun GPS worked great.  I'm due for an upgrade and was gonna upgrade to the iPhone 4 but rumor is that a new model is again suppose to come out in September so I'm going to wait and see.  I wore my Columbia Trail Runners today, I had been wearing my new UK Gear shoes the last 2 times out.  I think I like the Columbia's better, the UK's seem to be a little more rigid but they may get better with wear.  I wore them around the house for about a week before I ran in them, but they still may not be broken in completely.   Well, watch the rest of the Tour de France and then nap time.


Distance:  1.43 mile

This will be a blog about my beginners training program getting ready for my first 5K run. I hope to compete in my first 5K by September of 2011.
