Couch to 5K

W9D2 - was brought to you with Linkin Park and stepping up the speed!!!

Well I struggled a few weeks ago doing 1 min, 3 mins and 5 mins and now I am regularly doing 30 mins now.... and I have been stepping up the speed. I know it not much but started off at 6.5 doing week 6 and 7 on the dreadmill. Today I did the first 20 mins at 7.2, next 5 at 7.3 then next 4 at 7.5 and the last minute at 8.5 ( sorry to bore you but also a bit of a mental reminder) not bad for an old girl

Feeling good and looking forward to the weekend when i get my gown and hat ready :-D

What does that mean? Are those how long 1KM takes? Or KPH? I guess you are using a treadmill..

Well done you! That is a good speed on the treadmill. I know because I just finished a run and was doing about the same speed. You are going to be graduating in the next day or so then! That badge is getting shined as we speak!
