When I am walking or biking, after 34 minutes I hit my stride. I am into my zone and into whatever audio book or TV show I am watching. The time flies by and I have done an easy hour of exercise. I find a longer exercise session easier than several short ones.

The best advice I ever got about running was to concentrate on pushing the used air out. Your body will get air in--you don't need to worry about it. Use your abdominal muscles to push out the carbon dioxide and fresh air will come rushing in.
This is how I quit wheezing and found my stride.
I am the first person to admit that making it to the gym the first time is nearly impossible when you have no energy...utilize your one day of energy / inspiration and make it happen! When you get there the boost is impossible to replace...nothing is quite like the high of a good cardio work-out...wait until you hit the stride and run with it...I promise you won't regret it!
