I don't have a particular race in mind quite yet but I'm just trying to get into decent cardio shape. It sucks getting out of breath even after a light jog for a couple minutes. Not sure exactly what plan I'm using but it's a pretty straight forward "10 week couch-to-5k" type of deal. So far the typical workout starts out like 1 min running, 1 min walk, 1 min running, 1 min walk, 2 min run, 2 min walk, 2 min run, 2 min walk, 3 min run, 3 min walk, etc. I don't have the exact plan typed out because it's an iphone app and it just says tells me when to walk or run and when the workout is over. I'm running outside in my Merrell water shoes. (1 of 30) 7/13 - 18 minutes of workout, ~25 minutes including warm up/down. About 2ish miles. ~4.8 mph average speed. (2 of 30) 7/14 - 20 minutes of workout, ~25 minutes including warm up/down. 2 miles, still 4.8mph average speed. These first workouts seem pretty easy so I'm probably going to work out more than the recommended 3x a week to get the easy part out of the way.
