emoticon it really makes me feel good to have helped emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Thanks I just looked up the couch to 5k programme and I think I'll try it. So far I have been doing a Walk 4 jog 2 for 30minutes sort of thing but I'll try this and see which one I like better.

Hi and welcome to the team.

Yep, that is entirely normal when beginning running. A good way to get your body used to that cardio is follow something like the couch to 5k programme (there are teams here too) where it integrates walking and running, gradually building up the running time and distance.

Hope that helps emoticon

As the topic indicates I am fairly new to running for exercise and I have a question I hope someone can help with. When I run, even when I weighed 135 lbs, my lungs would burn and it almost felt like my heart was about to jump out of my chest. Is this normal when you have never ran for more than a minute or 2 at a time? Do you just have to push through it and it will ease off as you continue to run or should I expect this to last the entire time I run till my lungs and heart are used to this type of exercise?

Any types and advise to any of these questions would be appreciated. I would really like to work toward getting into a running routine but I always feel like I am going to die when I do it that it becomes discouraging
