Couch to 5k completed tonight!

I never imagined that having struggled to run for 60 seconds 9 weeks ago that I was able to complete tonight running for 30 mins doing 3.5 miles. I am aged 55 and sit at my computer a lot at work so was relatively unfit, now I am much fitter and sometimes even enjoy my run. Brilliant set of pod casts, now considering doing a 10K in May, thank you.
