On Sunday I decided to try 30 mins on the treadmill at the gym. Set the pace for 10k per hour so 30 mins should have taken me to 5 k. Well I only made it to 25 mins as I found it SUCH hard work.
Today back to the road and a new distance record for me of nearly 7 k. Feeling very pleased with myself I must say. Actually I think I only managed that distance because of the treadmill trauma on Sunday. The road just felt so much easier so i felt i could keep going. My theory is that the treadmill kept my pace so regular I was struggling to keep up! Perhaps also I set the pace to quick. I have just about managed 5 k in 30 mins but its not my normal pace, but I thought it would have been easier on the treadmill, inside, less pounding on the old feet, no wind etc.
Just wondered what everyone else's experiences were?
