Gateway to 8K thread

I didn't post here regularly about it, but over the summer I completed the Couch to 5K program. After repeating the 30-minute runs for a week, I decided to begin the next level, Gateway to 8K.

The Gateway to 8K program takes you from 5K to 8K (or 5 miles). That's a 60% increase in distance over the course of 10 weeks.

So far, I've finished weeks 1-2, and am also adding weight training on days between running workouts.

Anyone else doing this program?

Here's a link to the training plan: Gateway to 8k | How Did You Do It?

And a link to a podcast series that includes cues for when to run or walk: Podrunner: Intervals - Free Workout Music for 8K Training
