Treadmills. They're an art aren't they!
I managed to get a second-hand treadmill for the bargain price of £30. I'd just won it on eBay when Helsbels posted about her treadmill trauma earlier in the week so I was instantly regretting my decision.
Anyway I collected it today and as it was pouring down decided to try it out tonight.
Hats off to anyone doing the whole of the programme on a treadmill! The run seemed so much longer because of the monotony. Physically I was fine but... Yawn!
I struggled a bit with the constant pace as I imagine outside my pace fluctuates so it felt a bit unnatural.
I'm going to continue to run outside whenever I can and just use it as a fallback. If I use it in the week I could graduate by Friday but something in me feels like it would be somehow cheating to complete week 9 on a treadmill after doing the rest outside 😕
Biggest lesson learned tonight? Turn the heating off!! I sweated buckets! Running outside in the freezing UK winter has its advantages!
