nckbob2011 saidThanks for the advice guys! I've found that music definitely helps, but I've also just ran without worrying about where I go. That seems to have helped a lot. I've also found that it's become much better as I've improved my conditioning.
For those said I should find some other ways, what are you some things you guys do in place of running?
A 'spin' class might be something to add. Stationary bike with a heavy flywheel. It'll give you hockey-player glutes if you do it right. https://www.youtube.com/user/SpinningHQ
A heads up since the OP is my height (6'2"): The key to getting through a class comfortably is being able to get off those uncomfortable bicycle seats by standing on the pedals. The problem is the toe-cages for tennis shoes are designed for average-height people with size-9 footwear.
The center of your foot should be centered on the pedal pivot. You want to support your weight by the center of your foot, not on your tippey-toes. If your feet are too long, ditch the foot cages and invest in bicycle shoes with quick-release clips on the bottom.
There are more honorable reasons to wake up in the middle of the night and consider driving to the emergency room than bruizing the hell out of your ass (toes can't support my weight for an hour) in a cardio class.
