I want to love running. I'm so out of shape. I'm going to start the couch to 5k again. I've done it twice before. Even at the end of it, it was hard and I didn't love it. I want to love it. Will I?
Next week I'm going to start. I can take Hobson ( dog) and the boys will come with me. I just need to find the right time. Even though I have a jogger, I'd prefer not to take a stroller.
If you love running, did you always?

Not sure that I'd necessarily say I LOVE it, but I do like it quite a bit or it could be that I like the alone time it gives me. I haven't looked at the program, but I think I have heard that it's 3x a week, with a different "run" each of the 3 days. If it still seems hard at the end, maybe do each workout twice before moving on to the next one. You CAN do this!

I love running when I hit my "high". It's usually a few miles in and I don't necessarily always hit it I mainly love how I feel after I run and am stretching. It makes me feel strong and young cheesy, I know

I definitely didn't love it at first. Now I love it. It is my thing. It makes me a happier person. My high doesn't come until about 3.5 miles in and then leaves about mile 9. Most run are 5 miles so I can end it on a good note.

It takes time to build up the love. There are even bad runs where I cuss the entire time, swear I will never run again and throw my shoes around the room when I get done. I can usually go back and pinpoint what made it a crappy run - dehydration, lack of carbs, someone woke me up in the middle of the night, etc. - but I also know how I feel when I don't run. That is when I realize I am a runner. I have to run.

Ok, getting back, I started weight watchers. I started Jillian Michaels meltdown yoga. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll try running again.

How do you like Jillian Michael's Meltdown Yoga? I've been looking for a good yoga DVD to help me stretch on my off days from running. Is it calming or really strenuous?

It's great, but it's not relaxing. Jillian says its yoga with some aerobics thrown in. It's all yoga but you never stay still.
