Training for a 5K

I am following an app called Couch25K.  It is a 9 week program that can take a couch potato like me and turn me into a runner.  Ha ha.  It started out walk 5 minutes, jog 1 minute, walk 3 minutes, jog 1 minute, etc. Now, I am on week 5 and this has proven to be the toughest for me.  I have run for 5 minute intervals and then this morning 8 minute intervals.  The next one is to jog for an entire 20 minutes.  It has me nervous only because I have runners ADD or any exercise for that matter.  Even with music on my i pod and the tv at the gym, I find it hard to focus and catch myself counting the minutes.  

Anyway, there is a 5K by my house in November that I really want to run.  We'll see how it goes...
