    I know running is good and all that stuff but it's boring. I just can't wait to end and rest after jogging, whether it's running outside or on a treadmill.

    I LOVE dancing. I think dancing the THE most fun exercise you could do. I don't think of it even as exercise which is why I look forward to doing it. You don't HAVE to be a good dancer, just get moving to some good music. I like to just crank up the music at home and dance away. Club dancing is cool but I like my space, plus I like to practice dance for more than just a hobby.

    There are so many videos and programs out there that let you dance along and lose lbs. You can do short intense dancing or dance the night away!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    I have a love/hate relationship with running. Sometimes I dread it, but I enjoy the benefits. My legs have gotten more muscular and stronger over the years from running. And I'm pretty sure it has made my bones stronger as well.

    Also, I just think of it as another physical challenge, like a challenge you set for yourself in the gym. It feels good every time I'm able to run farther without stopping.

    Here's an interesting article that claims running actually helps your knees..

    I hate running. It's boring and pointless unless it's to catch a bus.

    I used to be an avid runner - marathoner, even. That is, until I blew out my knee and twice tore the fascia tissue in my right calf. Running, to me, was a great escape. It gave me a chance to clear my mind and think without distraction. I do miss it. There isn't a single other cardio exercise that I don't dread. I may check into these dancing videos, although I now have to be very careful not to reinjure my hip joints and knees.

    Running is fun, less-than-in-shape people should try it sometime.

    I'm actually addicted to running sometimes I find myself running at like 9-10pm at night just for the hell of it.

    Dancing for hours, but moving your body as swift as possible, would give a good cardio result. I do that once or twice a week.

    Speaking of which I gotta run like a cheetah or an antelope today. I should get on going. I was liking it more than running. I've gotten used to running, feel alive doing it

    Running is my fav cardio and on a day with sun out and temp in 70s or 60s nothing can stop me from a good run.

    I tried Zumba, an exercise where you dance to Salsa music, it's so fun you never get bored, anyways I was in Track for a year and a half and just did 6 months of Zumba and my legs got more muscular with dancing than Track.
    I think there are some videos on youtube about it, the routines are pretty easy but you do lots of cardio.

    I've never been into running. I still like choreographed fitness classes because I'm sort of a natural at them. I teach a bunch of classes, and the only time I seem to run is when I'm going to be late to get to the gym when I've got a class scheduled.

    Running sucks...agreed...but its sooooo good for you (kinda like most things that suck). My philosophy (since my running is based on distance)....the faster i do it, the sooner its over icon_biggrin.gif

    I hate running. I'd rather bike 100 miles than run 2 miles.

    Well TOO much can wear down your joints over time, my dad ran a lot and he has needed knee surgery, etc, maybe it's just him but idk

    When I run, I just wanna know when I can be done and look forward to the end. That's not enjoyable at all. When I dance or lift I could go all day and don't want it to end

    i know this may not be a sensible advise, but they always say just dont think of running when ur running.. try if that helps.

    when i was in the air force too, i made it a game if we were running on the track playing tag with the other guys. and before u knew it, i've already done 3 miles.

    and osteo-biflex helps with ur joints.

    Why don't you try swimming instead. Swimming tones muscles and is a great stress buster. Men in trunks look sexy too.

    A lot depends on where and why you run. I love to run in the woods and on the logging roads around here - explore new country, see wild animals, watch things grow and change. of course, that means running on a soft surface - as soon as I'm in Seattle I have to run on pavement and dodge cars - that that sucks!

    if you love dancing, dance! If biking is a joy, do it! But give wilderness running a try some time!

    Any cross-country skiers? It's getting closer and closer!

    I love running!!! (Not so much on the treadmill) Lol
    The only thing that sucks now is that I might have a stress fracture on my tibia on my left leg. After 5 years of running and never having any problems. WTH?!?! Boo
