Below is the sixth weekly contribution to the

Whole New Dad Couch to 5K Series featured at www.manofthehouse.com

The next installment of the series will be posted each Wednesday throughout the program:

Welcome to week six of our Whole New Dad program. This is a big, big week ahead where you are going to be running more than 50 percent of the time and distance that you travel during your workouts this week. A huge, huge step forward as your jogging intervals increase and your walking intervals decrease.

This week you are going to start each of your workouts with a brisk five minute walk to warm up, followed by:

  • Jog ¼ mile or three minutes followed by walking 1/8 mile or 90 seconds.
  • Jog ½ mile or five minutes followed by walking ¼ mile or 2 ½ minutes.
  • Jog ¼ mile or three minutes followed by 1/8 mile or 90 seconds.
  • Jog ½ mile or 5 minutes.

These workouts should take you between 26 and 30 jogging at a comfortable pace. If you are starting to feel like you can go a touch faster during your jogging intervals this week, go for it. Experiment a little bit. Do not get discouraged if you feel your breath quicken and your heart beat a little bit faster.
