How did you take that first step out on your first run? I love the running, being outside and feeling the effort. I just don't like those first steps out. Weird eh? It's all about not wanting to be seen as a puffing lump, don't know what to wear and definitely not being seen by anyone who knows me. It's all why I never kept it up. Now I have no weight loss goal or desire to do a 10k or further. I only want to run to get my fitness back. I've been the same weight for 10 years whether I exercise or not. I used to walk a lot including long routes over 20 or 30 miles. That kept my fitness up but I'm not able to do that now. I need something instead like a 30-60 minute run grabbed between family stuff and work. If anyone has advice on clothing, motivation or anything that would help me to get out and keep going out.... It would be much appreciated.
