W1R3 - finally done on the road!

I've been a silent reader of this forum for a number of months now so I thought it was about time I wrote my first post!

I began on my c25k journey around 6 months ago, and got pretty far with it, with the aim of them bridging from 5-10k when I completed it. But I made a huge mistake! As the weather in January was so cold and blustery and not very nice - I too easily opted for the treadmill instead. Wow did I have a shock when I tried to replicate what I'd been doing on the treadmill on the road! It was like I'd lost 6 weeks of training! It was pretty disheartening at the time, and with one thing and another (moving house / changing jobs), I knocked the training on the head for a bit.

This week I have finally decided to get off my bum and back into it, starting from the beginning, on the road. I'm so glad I have!

Finished W1R3 before work this morning and can't wait to do some more.

Feeling positive! :-)

  • Great stuff, keep it up. Finished week 1 this morning too!

  • Well done! It's certainly a good time of year to get used to running outside, just make sure you are well hydrated and don't forget the sun screen!

  • Welcome back! Interesting about treadmills as I've never used one so nothing to compare. the main thing is enjoy and keep injury-free, the road might prove a bit firmer to handle so do your warm downs! :)
