    another pound, congratulations!! that's so awesome.

    I've never been a runner. My joints don't like it. I walked miles and miles before I found the PB and feel that it was the right thing for me even though I never got any skinnier. Maybe that's the way to go for you, too.

    Running.......... I never could understand the reason for it - unless you're late for the bus, or the dog is chasing a bicycle down the street, or your toddler is reaching for the glass of juice you set on the coffee table!!!! haha! Running is for necessity, not pleasure! I have a very good friend from high school (so he's an old LONG time friend) whose wife loves to run, and when we asked him why he doesn't join her - his response was a simple, "I've never been in that big of a hurry!" I like that reason! That being said - I do have a huge admiration and respect for those who do! We have a very active neighborhood, with lots of people walking, biking and running - and I always seem to watch the runners the most!

    anyway --- I'd say, if you've lost your love for it - then why do it???? Purhaps take up biking long distances?

    I think you're being very wise in waiting till you're in better shape before taking up serious running again.

    Tomi, there's an endorphin rush to running once you hit your second win that makes it very pleasurable. Mind you, it has been many, many years since I experienced that, but I remember the thrill it was the first time I broke through that wall in phys ed class and was able to finish our entire jogging course in one glorious swoop without having to walk big parts of it. It felt so good...

    I've been avoiding running for years because I didn't want to stress my joints. Now I have to be very careful not to wear myself out because of the CFS, so it's still not on the agenda, except for short spurts. I sure shocked my daughter a while back when I sprinted for the bus. LOL! She had never, in her entire life, seen me run. It felt really good, actually.

    My problem with running is that I don't have a natural "run" setting. I have walk, quick walk, jog, quick jog, and SPRINT LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT! I have to actually think to run without sprinting or falling back to a quick jog.

    Doing any pace faster than walking is considered running in the running community. Only those outside the running community differentiate between running and jogging. And the more you practice, the better you get at it... so your quick jog pace would soon become easy as your lungs and muscles get used to the damands.

    And Judg is right... it's all about the endorphins.





    So, over lunch I went for a walk with Work Friend. On our way back, I coughed and felt a pop. Things hurt now. I think I dislocated a rib. Now my boob hurts (said rib is behind my left boob). Coughing is again agonizing, deep breaths are very painful and I don't even want to think about sneezing. I don't know if my chiropractor would be able to fix it... how can he manipulate a bone that rests behind a DD's worth of breast tissue??

    Ok, sniffing hurts too, so I bet blowing my nose would be next to impossible at this point. *sigh* When will this fucking cough go away? I am so fed up with it!!

    Eh, if it keeps getting worse, have it checked, but broken ribs get ... what for treatment? rest and don't lift anything heavy? For years I've had muscle spasms severe enough to disarticulate ribs out of my spine and damn, I know the pain. Worse on the exhale than on the in. Major suckage. Haven't had it happen in a few months, so I'm happy. Have flexoril, vicodin and a heating pad for when they do. Be aware of what's happening with you girl, and you should be ok.
