I feel like it's going well.

Run 3 - the last interval was terrible it was all I could do to keep my feet moving.

Thanks again for the program!

The 3x7 mins is a shocker isn't it? You're upping your mile time considerably because you've got a rest ahead of you and then suddenly it's interval 3 and you've got nowhere to hide.

5/22 - Run 4 - Benchmark A- 2 miles @~15:30 which on paper it looks like I've improved 3:30 from my last 2 mile on 5/6 but really it was a completely different route and I didn't have an asthma attack this time either. I have a 2 mile test again on 6/2 so that will be a better comparison against this effort.

Allen,

It seems though that your making progress. Your creeping down towards the 7 min mile mark. Are you enjoying it yet?

Enjoying is a bit strong but I'm not loathing it as much as I used to though.

5/23 - Run #5 - 2 minute on/ 1 minute off, 30 minutes total
Total Distance - 3 miles
Total run distance ~2.5 miles
Total walk distance ~0.5 miles

This seemed harder than it should have been, I was unable to get my speed up on the intervals, so total distance during the runs was only 2.5 miles in 20 minutes of work.

Run Allen Run. Nice job on the intervals.

How did you feel during the rest periods Allen? Were you sucking in?

I'm afraid most of this is going to be unpleasant but you may have just been out of sorts when you did it. I have days when I fly and days when I wonder if I will ever run again (mostly the latter the last couple of weeks).

#5(2/1) was nowhere near the intensity I had during #3(1/1), I was thinking I really need to pick this pace up...then I thought I was going faster but in the end...not really. My legs really did feel like lead yesterday though.

My total run distance in 3 was ~2.25 with 15 minutes of work. My total run for 5 was ~2.5 with 20 minutes of work.

I'm definitely NOT running today as for me 3 days in a row would be too much, that and the arches of my feet are not happy with me. I might do a few strides on Friday and I'll do Run #6 on Sat/Sun.
