Week 7 Day 3

Wow another week done!!!! When does the running get easier or maybe I should say, enjoyable? I still don't enjoy it, but do it because i know I should. Tonight's run seemed to go by quicker. But that's because Hulu.com is my new favorite site. I watched Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. It really makes the time fly by. Although it was a bit hard to run while crying (I always cry watching that show!!)

My husband has been cleared to exercise now. So hopefully I can get him to start running tomorrow.

I've often wondered when running will feel like it is easier or more fun, too. My wife seems to enjoy it now. I need to remember that I'm still carrying around 100 lbs. more than she is carrying, and that makes a difference.

If I try to be objective and think back, it really is easier now. I mean, when I first started I thought I was going to die after a few sets of 60 second runs. Now I can run for up to about 40 minutes--not without effort--but without that sensation of "I hope my life insurance policy is paid up..."

Will your husband be doing the Couch-to-5k program, or will he be doing something else? It was a great one for me (I'm 5'8" and started when I was over 300 lbs.).

I agree that running has become easier then the first weeks. But when do you enjoy it and do it because you want to? I try to like it I really do.

I am trying to get my husband to run and do C25K also. He always has an excuse, even tonight when he didn't work today.
