Well at last! I did it. My first run outdoors. Left the treadmill and the yummy mummy's to it today and braved the wind and rain. I ditched Laura too I'm afraid. Wanted to hear what was going on around me. So! I set off with mobile in hand and track my run on!! Walked 5 then started running. OMG! I couldn't do it. Was immediately out of breath and thoughts of week 1 came flooding back. So I walked again, recovered quickly then started again, trying to keep my pace slow. Same thing happened. So I gave myself a talking to and decided it didn't matter. I was trying. That was the main thing. So what if I had to walk and run. I've done this before. I knew I would improve. But then a weird thing happened. As I got near home there's a track near a flood plain thing so I decided I'd go round that once then walk to cool down. I found my pace! Amazing!! I ran round then thought, ok do another lap, then another and before I knew it I had done about 5 laps and was over 5k! Ok took me 45 ish minutes but I did suddenly settle into it and loved it. I didn't feel silly. Loved the rain and the wind and can't wait to go out again. So question for you all! Shall I still do odd treadmill run as I can do 30 fine and was trying to up my pace. Or simply stick to outdise now? Any thoughts? Anyway. Cup of tea time. Think I've earned it!!!
