I hate running, even when I went to the gym I did my best to avoid running but sadly its for two reasons that if I started running would probably ease off. I get so out of breath, I walk quite a lot but I'm terrible when it comes to running (I am a smoker but cutting down, less than 5 a day now!) plus I'm so self-concious about how I look. I hate the way I look in gym clothing, it hugs in bumpy places and never seems to suit me. I know both of these I should probably just 'get over and do it' but I wondered if anyone has any tips? I live on a main road in a city so finding quiet places to run is very difficult.
