Been couple of weeks since last update...
Week 3 Day1 took me 3 attempts to finish it properly. First time was bad choice of day - terrible ice-cold wind!! My lungs were freezing!! so I ran like 3 min then walked 1h. oh well.. better than nothing... got home.. and jumped on my treadmill... my lungs/chest was still hurting so again.. bad choice .. i really should've left it for another day. and Finally !!! i did it! week 3 was very good.. I couldnt wait to move on to week 4 cuz i was getting used to the 3 min run .. but the following one was 90 sec so i was like - well .. i really wanna run for 3 min.. cuz i like it.. ( OMG - did i just say I LIKE RUNNING???) but yes!!! I do !! so here i am Week4 Day1 completed - the last 20-30sec of the final 5 min run were a bit tough but i learned by the last couple of weeks how to distract myself through the pain - i would check the time (20-30sec till the end of the run) and then look around the room (cuz i was on the treadmill) and try to name several objects - picture - who is on it, color of frame, or just reading any words on the advert on TV - anything that can take my mind of the pain for the last few sec. might sound silly but IT WORKS perfectly for me !!
Week 4 day 2 today!!! HALF WAY THERE !!!
