It's been about 2 weeks of running for 30 minutes straight... with no walks in the middle. Just straight running. I have to be honest. I can't tell you of once where I just willed myself to run for 30 minutes straight. I don't think I've ever even wanted to run for 30 minutes until we started this running program. But, it feels so good.
Since we've been really pushing it and doing 2-3 miles every other day, I can't tell you if he's even coughed once during the day. I've really heard an improvement in his lungs. When we first started running, he would run for one minute and cough for so long, I wondered if I was hurting him by encouraging him to keep running. Now, the kid can run faster than me, and talk while doing it. We must be doing something right!
