can't believe i have completed week 2 :)

i joined a gym in February with a friend who is 20 years younger than myself, and have found it really hard to keep motivated, i come home aching and dreading going again, that is til i discovered the couch to 5k and wow i am hooked, i got my son to download the podcasts for me, i went round the gym on my own (which i wouldn't dare do a couple of weeks ago) and got going on the treadmill and went for it , i have never enjoyed any sort of exercise before but i came home full of energy and couldn't wait til the next run.i let my friend know what i have been doing and she is giving it a go too, i love this program and am so pleased with myself for getting this far , long may it continue :)
