Last night I got one of these...
Such a blessing! My good friend's parents were getting rid of theirs and she asked me if I wanted it.
Um, heck yes!
Thank you, thank you Laura for thinking of me!
We put it in our downstairs play room and I was able to put it to good use this morning while watching my 3 year old play during my youngest daughter's nap.
Actually, I was like a kid on Christmas morning last night and couldn't wait to use when my hubby got home with it at 8:30, so I did a short walk on it last night too.
I'm starting the couch to 5k program, and whew! I am out of shape! I'm going to be totally honest here...those two shorts minutes of jogging were tough...walking forever is no problem, but I'm not a runner. Two minutes feels like an eternity when you are out of shape. So sad, but so true. I used to say I'm not runner and never will be, but over the last few months I've had the itch to start running. Never thought I'd say this, but I want to be a runner...or at least a good jogger :) I can't wait to finish the couch to 5k program and do one or two 5ks this year.
I only got to do about a mile on the treadmill this morning and then I knew my time was running out if I wanted to shower before my daughter woke up from her nap. I'm going to have to hit the treadmill as soon as she goes down tomorrow so I can have more time. It was nice enough this afternoon that I took my daughters out for half hour walk in their wagon...pulling them around in that gives a little extra umph to the walk!
I'll be rotating between using the treadmill and doing two workout DVDs, I'll share those later.
