Toot toot!  I’m the same way!  I’m no runner, so i set the max time at 16 minutes and then as that gets close I say to myself I can do 2 more and then 10 more and before I know it’s time to go home!!

 

GREAT JOB! 🙂

I’d fist bump you if I could.  I keep saying I’m going to run, but haven’t.  My excuse today was that it snowed… (which is probably an ok excuse 😉

woo hoo!  I love running, but don’t do it nearly as often as I talk about it.  It’s hard to find the time and opportunity for me.  I’m not a member of a gym and not a big fan of running on a treadmill.

The Nike+ system is my lifesaver when it comes to that because I can track my time, distance, calories, etc…and it’s mobile!

COngrats ES123!  keep up the good work!

Congrats, you sound like me! I HATE running SO much! I’ve had to start real slow working myself up to 30 mins too. Now I’m doing a jog/ fast walk combo and go almost 2.5 miles in 30 mins which is a huge step for me! Keep up the great work!

Congrats!  I guess I don’t mind running, but sometimes it is very tough to motivate yourself.  I always feel so awesome afterwards, though.  I found that setting a goal for myself helps, like shaving 30 seconds off of my mile time or being able to run a 5K.  Working towards something makes me feel that much better when I achieve it an I can see how far I’ve come.

ES123 – that’s tight! I never was much of a runner myself – still am not. A while back though, I had the same experience as you – I just DID IT. Usually I get side aches and have to stop (Even when running really slow (5 mph)). Sometimes I still can pound out a good half hour of running, but often, I can’t. Funny how that works.
