I used to always run on the treadmill . Having a break of about 3years my partner decided to take up running in October so I did the plan with him. He gave up during March to concentrate on his golf but I kept going. I thoroughly enjoy running outdoors and will never go inside a gym again! Running with him gave me the confidence to be seen in Lycra outdoors!
My only problem is that I struggle running into a head wind, I tend to run to a certain point and then turn round. I'm ok if my outward route is into the wind. Does anyone else find it difficult? I have about a mile of straight pavement and it's so much easier to walk. Once i turn off that road I'm fine.
I am running 3 miles in just under 30 mins. The c25k is a fantastic running plan, Laura does get you through it.
