My Weekly 5K

I have had some new readers visiting me from the WW boards. Hello and please leave me a note sometime.
Anyway, since getting the new love of my treadmill.....I have been doing a weekly 5k (walking). I know to lots of people 3.1 miles aint fact at one point in my life it was just the warm up. Anyway, I guess I am doing it to sorta track my progress. I am definitely a numbers gal. I guess because like they say...numbers don't lie! So just to catch you up...if you are into numbers too here are my first three weeks 5k resluts.

Week 1 3.02 (dist) 61:36 (time) 20.31 ( average pace per mile)
Week 2 3.19/61.30/19.21
Week 3 3.17/60.00/18.92

So, pretty exciting to see that in only three weeks I shaved a 1.39 off my pace. It's still painfully slow but I will get there.

I am thinking about doing the couch to 5k program that is out there. Anyone have any experience with that?

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog! It helps to have an insiders view on 3 kids versus 2. It's a hard decision when it seems the world works best for families of 4. It's nice to hear from someone who recommends it! Also it's great to find another WW'er! I definately find it helps reading about other people's tricks!
