C25K day 2

I just got back from completing week 1 day 2 of the Couch to 5K running program. I had downloaded a podcast from here that has fast/fun music plus voice-over of when to warmup/walk/run/cooldown, etc. Thankfully, it played on my Blackberry. I prayed a WHOLE lot during it! I know I can do this. I want to do this. And thankfully, I was able to do this today. As of right this second, I'm not actually looking forward to doing it again on Thursday, but. . .I can. And I will. Then, again, on Saturday. it will switch up on Monday and have more running. Today for me, the running was actually much easier than it was on Sunday - which is of course, what's supposed to happen. I ran it VERY slowly, but I was running/jogging and wanted to be able to complete the entire program for the day, and I did, so I'm more than satisfied with the speed I went. The biggest accomplishment - I went. (Even after I had not been able to find my keys for the first 30 minutes I was ready to go! BOo!) My legs hurt very badly at the end, and the "brisk walking" for recovery was more like "somehow keep moving forward", but still.  I did it at the Greenway, and I think I will continue to do it there for awhile. #1 It's pretty 2. It's public, but at the same time secluded 3. Ok. so I only have 2 reasons for right now, but oh well. :)

Good for you. I keep telling myself I'm going to get up and be ready before the kids (including a small cardio workout and reading scriptures) but it has yet to happen. Congrats on meeting some goals!
