28 minutes. W8D1 in the bag. Actually, it was 29 minutes punctuated by three short breaks for water-- I added a minute to cover for the breaks. Walking until my heart rate falls below 105 seems to save me from wanting to keel over when I get off the treadmill.

The temptation to just skip this week and do the three 30-minute runs is strong. I'm not giving in to it.

Oh yeah. Forgot to tell you, a warm up walk and a and cool down walk are very important.

Five minutes on the front side, five or more minutes on the end. It's the "or more" that I mentioned above-- if after five minutes my heart rate is still above 105, I slow the treadmill down even more and keep walking until it drops.

Fantastic. Trivial point: Takes about 40 minutes to absorb water into the cells. If it makes you more comfortable or cools you off, go for it, but anything you drink during a run of 40 or less isn't going to otherwise help. In a 5K, though I feel thirsty, I won't bother with a drink until after.

Sure it does. It helps with the post-run recovery.
