From Katie: I KNOW that running burns more calories. I have known this for a LONG time, and yet, still, I hate it! There isn’t anything about running that I enjoy (except the calorie burn). Every time I pick up the speed (whether it’s on the treadmill or outside), it’s agony. However, I feel like I could walk for days!
Why is it that all the activities I enjoy don’t have very high calorie burns (biking, swimming, walking, playing volleyball)? I miss bike riding. It’s been almost two years since I’ve been on my bike (I had pregnancy to thank for that last summer), and I am SO looking forward to getting back on! The pool? Well, I’m too embarrassed to put myself into a bathing suit so that shall have to wait until maybe June?
As I was watching The Biggest Loser the other night they were talking about how exercising can be fun! There are times that I really do enjoy my workouts (especially Saturday morning boxing boot camps), but when running is involved, that’s simply not the case! Any tips out there on how to make it more enjoyable?
