My first week of interval running.

All of my first week runs were 25 minutes. According to the program I've been using to track things, here's what my distances look like:

8/22: 2.6 kilometers (1.2 miles.)
8/24: 2.9 kilometers (1.3 miles.)
8/27: 2.2 kilometers (one mile.)

None of these are super-great for a twenty-five minute session, but it's my first week. :/

I was running on a treadmill for the first two runs and ran outside around midday for the third, which probably accounts for the difference. It's harder to track speed, and a lot harder to run anyway when it's that hot.

I've noticed one thing: No matter how long or how carefully I cool down, my heart rate still seems to take a ridiculous amount of time to slow back down. The nurse I talked to about this said that it would get easier once I got into better shape. I hope he's right.

I've been running on mostly flat tracks/low incline settings so far. Since I've only been doing this for a week, I don't want to wear myself out yet. That's why I stopped last time I was jogging, I think - I did a mile-long jog at midday and then gave up because I didn't get the time I wanted. But if I can just keep in mind that I'm not trying to be perfect, I think I can succeed.
