Does anybody out there run outdoors for regular exercise? Has anybody tried the Couch-to-5k running plan? I’ve been doing fairly well with yoga and the gym lately, and have my bike and bike rack ready to go for the nicer weather, but I’m contemplating taking up running as an activity for days I can’t get to the gym. Except in the past, I’ve always hated running, finding it both uncomfortable and mentally numbing. Not in a zen way, either, but making me feel brain-dead when I’m done. It’s so healthy and frugal, though, I feel I should give it another chance. I think it’d be a nice way to see more of Baltimore, too. Thoughts? Suggestions?
