Day 46--Running

I enjoy running. I haven't enjoyed running in my entire life. It's the part of the daily workout in the 30 day challenge that I most look forward to. I still don't like fast kick ups, but the actual running is enjoyable. I may see if my enjoyment of running translates from running in place in my living room to running on a treadmill. Last summer, when I was biking to work, I kept trying to run on the treadmill, but after a couple of minutes I would die. I've run on the Wii for much longer than that, and haven't felt that urge to die that I normally get when I run. I don't have any plans for running a marathon any time soon, but this is still a nice change which opens more work out opportunities for me. If it does translate outside of my living room, it may also benefit my dogs, who have never been able to run because there was no one who could run with them for more than a few steps.

  1. I love the blog entry. I don't have a wii, but maybe that is where I started. I just started running again for the first time in 2 years.

    I feared the treadmill. Now my agenda on the treadmill is not to have one. If all I do is walk, then that's good enough. I turns out on most occasions I was running about .5 miles. Now I am up to a mile.

    Keep on keepin on. My dog will benefit this spring. Or, at least that is the hope.
