Couch to 5K week 2

I’ve decided to grab onto the tail-end of the Couch to 5K bandwagon and give it a whirl. A lot of my Biggest Loser girls have worked on this, but I never had any desire to try. I’ve been trying to break out of my comfort zone, though, so I’m going to do it. Of course, I know myself well enough to make this statement… I hope I stick with it.
Couch to 5K is a running program that trains you over a series of 9 weeks to run a 5K (three miles), by following a schedule of intervals which increase each week. Robert Ullrey has created a set of podcasts to guide you through each session, so you’re not having to watch the clock or your watch to get the walking/running times correct. They’re free.

I had trouble downloading week 1 for some reason, so I’m starting with week 2. It was really easy for me, so I don’t think I need week 1 anyway. It was 2 minutes of walking, 90 seconds of running. 6 sets of this. Piece of cake. Unfortunately I had to pee really bad. Nothing like trying to jog with what feels like an over-inflated water balloon inside. Note to self: hit the bathroom BEFORE hitting the treadmill.
