Running for Beginers

8861984?1361317130
Hello- I weight about 275 lbs.  I have always been interested in running/jogging as a hobby but A- I have no motivation. and B- I have asthma and even walking up the stairs winds me.  I am wondering if anyone has any tips for either obstacle and if anyone has overcome them.

Hi bidlygirl,

I think it's always a good idea to consult your family doctor when you're
considering starting a new exercise plan. I have asthma too by the way.
Your doctor can suggest some exercise you can do. Personally, I
wouldn't do any running or jogging until you have discussed this with
your doctor. Running and jogging can put a strain on your heart.
You also have to do warm up exercises before you jog. Your doctor
may suggest that walking on a treadmill may be a good start seeing
as you have asthma issues as do I. Maybe just walking for a few
minutes a day would be a good beginning. Your family doctor can
advise you best as he knows your medical history. I wish you well.
