C25K Couch to 5K Round 2 Week 3 Day 2

Day 2 of Week 3 didn't go as well as Day 1 of Week 3. It was pretty windy out and hubby went with me, so we went to the track. It's usually a bit windy on the way to the track, but it was exceptionally windy when I went out for the run. Going uphill on the first two runs is hard enough, but to run into the wind and go uphill is torture! I couldn't keep my 12ish minute mile pace. I didn't really try all that hard though admittedly. I just ran with my normal effort, but the pace was way off. I don't think I hit 12ish minute mile pace at all during the first two runs. This was just like Day 1 of Week 2. I had 90 seconds running, 60 seconds walking. Three minutes running and 20 minutes walking. Then I repeated the whole thing. I got through the runs fine. I wasn't in pain during them, but my breathing was horrible. I was coughing a lot. I wasn't sore the next day and the coughing cleared up once I was back home. I managed a little better with the two runs on the track, but I still wasn't breaking any land speed records. Hubby suggested we ride our bikes to the track to get there faster so I don't have to run on he street. We might try that tomorrow for week 3 day 3. It's going to lengthen the overall time of the workout though since I won't be starting the app as soon as we leave the house. We'll see how it goes.

I like the heart rate chart a lot better from this workout over the last one. That was pretty weird on the last one. Not sure what happened there. This one makes sense though.
