Wk7r1 out doors!

Having gone back a run to enable to try outdoors after jogging on a treadmill, 25 minutes! non stop! Out doors! So pleased :) before I started this programme the only thing about me that ran was my nose! Now I just jogged for 25 minutes! Just wanted to share how good it feels, people say how much I am changing! All going in the right direction! Thanks for all your posts, they let me know I am not the only one going through this x

  • Well do e on completing w7r1. Running for 25 minutes is a great feeling isn't it and soooooo close to running for 30 minutes :)

  • A little late going out tonight, life got in the way. But so glad I did :) thank you for the support :)

  • You're welcome :) I'm currently using a treadmill but won't venture outside until after graduating. I've done both in the past and my opinion is that running outdoors isn't 'harder' it's just 'different' so don't worry too much about that. Good luck :)

  • Well done on venturing into the wide blue yonder - otherwise known as outdoors. It's harder than running on a treadmill but far more rewarding so all power to you. Good luck with your next run. Best wishes.

  • Thank you :) feel just as good today if not better! Good luck with your progress

  • Well done for getting outside - it makes such a difference and will make running once you have finished the program much easier to sustain (I love the fact that you can start as soon as you step outside your door!).

    Next stop - Parkrun!

  • Thank you, so enjoying the programme :) I have read about 'parkruns' on here but what are they?

  • Hi Net68,

    I'm looking forward to the day when I can run 5k confidently and start at park runs...


    Every Saturday morning in about 250 locations in UK, volunteers put on a 5k run which is free to take part in. Once you've registered (online) you can turn up, run and they'll track your timings. Since it started, Park runners have completed nearly 22Million kilometres. You can do it once, irregularly of every week if you want to.

  • Thank you, I had a look but there isn't one close enough :( seem like fun though :)
