Especially when your 270 lbs used to love running when I was younger and 50lbs lighter was able to run 7 1/2 min miles now I'm around a uhhhh 12 min mile and my lungs and calf's are on fire! Aiming for 10 min or less mile by end of next month


But on the bright side I have been in the gym 21 days this month so far and my weightlifting has greatly improved plan is to walk more and run some this week and starting next week run everyday I'm at the gym on top of weights

And I'm 11lbs down since the 5th would be more I assume if I wasn't weight training so much

I hated running when I "had" to. High school sports & Navy ROTC forced you to run in formation for undetermined distances. I hated running.

When I started running on my own (and when it quit hurting), I started to not hate it. When I ran my first trail run, I finally understood why people enjoy running. That was my fun time. I can't wait for the days to get longer so I can run the trails more.

Have you tried a couch-to-5K app?

I enjoy it -clears my head. But, when you are coming off the couch, it sucks.

I hate running, prefer hiking as it's something I can do with my oldest son at a decent pace. Taking part in a mini-triathlon relay this spring and I will be doing the running, 10 miles. Gotta get going.

I would rather play basketball than run. Going to the gym at 4:30 and it's dark still so I am running on treadmill or doing elliptical machine.
