Running – A Passion?

Are any of you runners?

I’ve never really enjoyed exercise. At the gym I get competitive and overdo it, classes my weight makes me paranoid. Swimming I do enjoy, but with long thick hair the time getting sorted after just doesn’t make it viable with so many other commitments.

People who run however. They don’t seem to just enjoy it. It’s almost like a passion! They love running.

What is it about running that makes people so enthusiastic?

It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot. I want to be one of them.

My fitness levels just aren’t up to it though.

I read an article that suggested building up which I might try.
Run one minute, walk four. Repeat for thirty minutes.
When you can cope with that…
Run two minutes, walk three. Repeat for thirty minutes.
Keep building until you can run thirty minutes straight.

Does that sound like a good way to start?
How did you start running?
What inspired you to start?

If anyone has any tips to share I’d love to hear them too.
