Soooooooooo I did it! I completed the program on March 18th, after running twice a week for about 3 months. I definitely modified the program a bit to be more convenient for me, but it still got me to the same goal! 3.1 miles in 30 minutes :D
here. I ran both outside and on the treadmill, but found that I enjoy running outside much better. Go figure. I used to love the treadmill for runs, but after a mile or so, it starts to get preeeeettttttty boring. Plus the weather has been gorgeous lately, and I'll take any excuse to be outside! :)
I should also add that this was a great way for me to transition into "barefoot" or minimalist running. The way the walk/run splits are in the beginning really helped to give my feet a break and reminded me to focus on my form. I had sore calves after a few runs, but never any pain.
I'm going to continue running, possibly move onto the 10k runner app for my phone. After I'm finished with P90X2 and have some more time, I'm going to add in some sprints as well. I'll let you know how it goes ;)
