a time to run - week 3

i started a walking ---> jogging/running program. i found it online at http://www.ab-core-and-stomach-exercises.com/beginner-treadmill-workout.html. with all the exercise i've been doing, i started with week 3 of the program. i was really proud of me for doing it! i know it doesn't sound like a lot, but i'm amazed about how you progress with exercise...how much easier things become.

Week 3: Walk for 4 minutes between 3.0 and 4.0 mph then jog between 4.5 and 5.0 mph for 1 minute. Repeat 6 times until you've completed 30 minutes.

for me personally, i walked at a 3.5 mph pace, then jogged at 4.8 mph. i'm going to try to keep going with this program. i'm pretty excited about it.

nothing else new on this end...tomorrow i work half a day in richmond, then get to head to Illinois to spend Easter weekend with my boy. :)
