    Tuxgirl got a reaction from torus_ot in Question on w5d2 (and beyond)   
    Awesome. So,I'm gaining a ton of trust in the people who came up with the times for this program. I was totally sure I couldn't do w5d3, but not only did I do it this morning, but I was a ways from home at the end of the 20 minutes, and was feeling awesome, so I kept going through the timed cooldown!!! Ended up going about 1.75 miles. 
    Seriously, 2 months ago, I didn't think that was possible. Honestly, before I started this morning, I wasnt sure if I could actually make it through the 20 minutes!!!

    @torus_ot, 
    Just wanted to thank you again for the encouragement. Got out there again this morning, and it was the best time so far. Made it through w3d1, and wasn't even counting down to the end of the second 3 minute jog time. (Actually, I was a minute away from a distance marker on the path I was on, and felt good enough to keep going for that extra minute before going back to a walk. 
    Thanks!!!

    Thanks for commenting! 
    I might be pushing too fast. I feel like I'm super slow to the point that it barely is a jog, but I will keep an eye on that. 
    Today went a lot better. Not sure why. It was raining, and I switched direction on my route as well as changing my music a bit... I also made a point to stretch really good the past two evenings... 
    By outside front of the calf, I mean that if you are looking down on your right leg, it is sore at about 2:00 on the leg. (10:00 on the left leg). It doesn't feel like shin splints. Shin splints always feel to me like it's the bone hurting (and thankfully I haven't had them yet with this program!!), but this definitely feels like it's a tight muscle. I have had a little success standing and tucking my toes in and just trying to pull my leg forward a bit (hard to explain), but I still haven't found a really good stretch for that spot.
    Thanks again! I'm going to stretch between sessions again, and hope that that keeps things moving the right way!

    Interesting. I guess I've always had them feel more like bone pain. Will keep an eye on it. Haven't needed ibuprofen yet, but I will keep that in mind. 
    Thanks!!
