    "you want to make sure your legs are in such a position that your foot lands directly over your toes."
     
    What the heck does that mean?

    I took your advice and did not worry about breathing through the nose. It seemed to help! Did 3/3, 5/5, 3/3 then ran 3/5 of the last "run" before I had to walk for 30 seconds or so before jogging the last 85 seconds. Did not wheeze like had had been! I think I'm now on track to finish week 4 on Friday and start week 5 monday!

    finally managed to run 5 minutes straight!   I did it on day 4 of week four. jogged, slowly, for both 3 minute intervals and five minutes for the first five minute interval. For the second 5 minute interval, I only lasted 90 seconds before I had to walk for a minute then jog again, walk then jog the last minute.
    Day 5 of week 4 was a carbon copy of Day 4. Day 6 I managed to jog about 2 minutes the last interval before having to walk.
     
    Tomorrow I'll be starting the week 4 training for the third straight week. 
    If I was jogging any slower, I'd be walking. I run on a flat surface and am never sore. I try to breathe in through the nose and take deep breaths, pushing my diaphragm down and exhaling through the mouth.
     
    After repeating week 3, I thought I'd have to repeat week four, but having to repeat it twice is rather discouraging. I'm not even close to jogging 5 minutes twice in one session  ,but I'm going to keep at it. 
     
    Still accepting advice. Again, I'm never sore; I just get very winded.

    I had no problems with weeks 1 & 2, but week three is kicking my butt! I could not jog a full 3 minutes once in any of the three days of week 3, so I restarted today. I did finally jog 3 minutes, but it was downhill after that. I couldn't even do the 90 second jog, and couldn't do even 2 minutes of the second 3 minute jog.
     
    I'm going to try again Wednesday. 
     
    Any tips on how to increase my stamina and get closer to week 4? I'm no closer now than last monday!
