Haha, I’m interval running for the C25K program. It is tough! I just finished my first week of run 60 seconds, walk 90 seconds and I’m feeling it. 

Honestly, the first night was the roughest and it took my legs 2 days to recover. Night two wasn’t nearly as bad and tonight I’m barely feeling it, except in my butt :p

It will get easier!

It’s hard but so worth it! You get results so much faster, and it really whips you into shape.

it is hard but i love it! granted, i’m not really loving it when i have to dig deep for the last few ounces of power to make it through my last running interval but yeah, it does get you working a lot more than continuous jogging. good luck!

I heard that switching it up like that instead of doing the same thing at a continual pace is much more effective!!  Good Luck!

It is so hard!  Your heart and breathing have to constantly adjust.
