Getting into a running habit requires a little bit of patience. It takes time to build up the kind of endurance required for a 30-minute run, and if you're like us, it can be really tempting to throw in the towel the minute we start feeling winded. Don't quit! Skip!
"Whenever you get the urge to stop and walk, try skipping instead. Skip for a minute or two and either return to running or walk for a few minutes if you still feel the need for break. Skipping will keep your heart rate elevated, and you'll burn more calories than you would if you were walking. Plus, it's a fun way to mix up your workout so you don't get bored. Do be prepared for some funny looks. But ignore them, because skipping is fun."
