Let me just put this out there; I hate running.
So, I did my first run today and it was definitely harder than the elliptical! For the first week, you run 60 secs, then walk 90, off and on. And let me tell you, during the running, I was huffing and puffing. I was sweating, my heart rate was up and I was breathing heavy.
Also, I downloaded a C25k app for my phone so I can listen to music and the app tells me when to start running, when to walk and keep track of the time and distance. Pretty cool!
The C25k stuff is 3 days a week, so I'll be doing it with other workouts on the other days. I was nervous before I started. I was scared I'd be too out of shape, plus I don't really love running outside where people can actually see me. But it was fine. Challenging, but fine. I made it! I think I need to do stuff like this (ie pushing myself) more often.
Attitude of Gratitude: Thinking you can't do something and then actually doing it feels good.
