Petition for more oxygen in Colorado

Ok, so, I can't run. I can hardly jog. This state just doesn't have enough oxygen! Two minutes of jogging and I'm wheezing like a wounded buffalo.

I have a path around my apartment complex that I measured out with my car. It's roughly 1.5 miles and I need to be able to run it in under 14 minutes. Today, I timed myself for the first time, running when I could and walking when I couldn't. I finished in 23:24. That's a long way to go.

Given how far behind I am, tomorrow, I want to try two things.
1. I want to do two runs, one before my weight training workout and one after.
2. For at least the first run, I want to follow some advice from a friend of mine and try never falling back to a walk, and stay jogging even if walking would be faster.

I'll ease up on the weight training if I need to because I need a week of running, to get my lungs back into working like well-tuned machines.
