For the previous four weeks, each of the three workouts for that particular week is the same. Week five begins a variation of workouts, each day gradually increasing the amount of time spent running.There are mileage options and time options, meaning your first run segment can be ½ mile or five minutes. I’m going to be running the time options today, take my rest day, and on Friday, September 6 run the same workout with the mileage option. I’ll be doing this for each of the three workouts, so week five will actually cover fifteen days and six workouts.
Brisk 5 minute warm-up walk
Brief stretching routine

Longer stretching routine

Everything went very well. Even the pulling I usually feel in my shins was minimal. I accidentally went over time on my second walk segment…I got involved in thinking about an idea and went two minutes over.
BUT!!!! On my third run segment I jogged the rest of the way home! Nine minutes and twenty eight seconds of actual jogging! Yes!! I am steady rockin’ all ya’lls boulevards! Off the richter!!!
Warning…that’s a link to the Black Eyed Peas video Hey, Mama! Everybody’s dressed but it’s still borderline explicit for lyrics and dancing. They twerked before twerking was a thing. Back in 2003 I’m pretty sure it was just called dancing. Or maybe it was called stepping. I’m not well-informed on retro hip hop lingo. I just remember the song was really fun.
So my run was relatively easy. For me. Friday will be more difficult I think. I’ll be running the mileage. I used Google Maps and plotted it out.
