It's not uncommon to have ptraj run for long periods of time, depending on
the size of your co-ordinate file.

Looks like you did not apply one of Dr. Cheatham's recommendations. The
line above ie
     rms first out rms_image_first.out: 1-308_at_CA
should look thus:
     rms first out rms_image_first.out :1-308_at_CA
ie a space between the ouput file and the atom mask specification.
