Couch to 5K - Week 8

October 25th, 2012

Episode 2 of 13 episodes

For the runs in Week 8, you will begin with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk then 28 minutes of running. By now, you should be getting comfortable with the longer runs but you still need to concentrate on completing the 28 minutes without going too fast.
