Well I have done couch 25K on the treadmill, then when I went out to run on the road, I just couldn't do it. The road is SOO much harder, so I have started the podcasts again from week 1 on the road. I want to go out and run, not stuck on a machine in the house (I work from home so need to get out more!).
So the first run absolutely killed me, but I am just totally unfit (doing this job I suppose).. and I think because I didn't stretch afterwards my muscles hurt so much for days afterwards I couldn't go out again that week. So I started again, and it was a lot easier (I did lots of stretching). I am now on week 3 - I am absolutely loving it. But my question is this. It's not exactly flat where I do running, it starts off a steady uphill then a long downhill, when I know I am half way through a podcast I head back up the massive hill.. it's really the only way I can run from where I live. Am I best to stick to running like this or when I do my longer runs, is it best to do it on a more flat ground?
Thanks for reading, I am determined to get there this time, I have a holiday to Florida booked and I want to be fit, not fat when I get there - only 13lbs to go!
