Okay, today I wanted to see if I could do four 8 minute intervals at 6mph. I was able to do 3 (needing some extra rest for the second and third), then six more minutes, then a rest and two and a half more minutes... so I got my 32 minutes of jogging in, but still haven't reached that intermediate goal.
(Once I can do that, I plan to slowing bump up the time - 8:15, 8:30, etc., until I'm up to four 10 minute intervals. Then, I'll try to start stitching them together until I'm able to do 40 minutes straight)
In the meantime, I can do three twelve minute intervals at 5.8 miles an hour, which shows you the importance of small differences.
