Week 3 Shorter?

After struggling with week one so much I had to do it 3 times..2 weeks on I am on week 3 . Found it surprisingly easy and it must be shorter as I usually run same route and first weeks only have a couple minutes home after 5 minute cool down. Today was well over 10 minutes from home when finished, surely as I was running more I should be nearer to home or do I run slower than I walk ?

Hiya, yes you are quite right. Week 3 is the shortest week of C25K as you are running for 9 minutes and walking for 16 minutes.

You can see what is coming up by looking at this wallchart of C25K runs:

Maybe a shorter week is a reward for completing W1 and W2?
