Sucks; enough said.
All right in all seriousness running really isn't that bad except for the fact that it really, really sucks.
Are people born runners? Do people train and become runners? I mean seriously we're bipeds and when was the last time anyone saw a biped mammal run on two limbs in the wild?
Ok, so maybe we're all born runners and like me, most of us spend our lives training to become non-runners. I'm really trying to convince my mind and soul that running isn't bad and it's only been a week, so maybe there's hope.
I've been taking Frankie running with me at night and we've been doing all right. I have no cardio, so my body is never sore and wants to go more, but even a slow run is enough to make my lungs and clogged arteries want to explode. I hope that building more distance and simply continuing to run will overcome these factors and I can start to put my muscles to the test.
So if anyone has running tips and actually reads this please feel free to throw out ideas. Until then I'm determined to keep running one sad step at a time...or two if I feel like skipping, or maybe not.
