started last week. aiming for 1mile a day till the ancles stop hurting then plan to increase. hate jogging. it requires effort. its boring.

but don't hate it nearly as much as spending money at a gym...

I'd love to be able to run. Running area of choice would be along the Charles River, and over the bridge to M.I.T., to Harvard Square, to a coffee house. Course, don't live in Boston anymore, and can't run, so....it's a no-brainer. You reminded me though. I'd really like to make time to walk that route when I go for a very short visit later this month.

Hi Nats.
Good for you.
Now I need to take your inspiring news and begin my own exercise plan. Although relaxing on the couch with a cup of tea sounds quite nice (ha, ha).
Have fun.

RE: started jogging...
I love running, but even then it can be hard to motivate myself! How's it going? It's good to start slow. I've transitioned to barefoot running and have been taking months to start from zero and very slowly increase my mileage, the roughness of the running surface, etc., but it's been worth it. My form is better, and I love feeling the ground. It's revitalized my running experience. Of course, it helps that I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Smile

Hi Nats,
I am emma19. I use to come here a long time ago. I use to run a lot. Now I walk 4 times a week. This body won't let me run anymore but I really enjoy walking now. I have a safe place to walk now and allow myself to bring music with me and we don't get bored . We do some of our best thinking while walking. So Nats I just wanted to say hi and good luck with your running.one step at a time. Smile
