Confession: I hate running
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
Whether it's outside or on the treadmill, I just really don't like it. I've tried to embrace it and learn to love it because 1) I LOVE the results I get from doing it consistently, 2) I feel like superwoman after a good run and 3) it just sounds good to say "I went running." But alas, it seems to go on forever (30 minutes, 2 hours, doesn't matter) and can just be plain boring. On top of that, a few years ago while training for a marathon, I injured my knee and it still bothers me today. So I'm also terrified of damaging it beyond repair and I'll be limping for the rest of my life! Yes, I'm a tad bit dramatic, but it really does scare me.
Okay, so that's the bad news. The good news is there ARE other types of cardio I do like. I usually feel just as winded as when I run, but because they're more "fun" to me, it feels like not a real workout like running. That's so stupid. While I'm at it, I don't really like the elliptical machine either. lol That's even more boring than running. I think I'm just more of an interactive kind of gal. Classes, team sports, stuff like that. Okay, so that's it - I'm exposed!
