Ok so I have been using the Zenlabs app and finished on Friday of last week on a treadmill. Over the last few weeks I have made a couple of disastrous attempts to run outside. Its like my body has no idea what it is I'm trying to make it do! I can't breathe, I feel like gravity has been turned right up - just horrible! I tried to go as slow as possible but didn't really manage more than a minute before I went back home with my tail between my legs.
I had decided that perhaps I should finish the program on the treadmill and then start all over again outside - and as a bonus have found somebody else who wants to start with me. My question/problem is this. Am I going to lose the stamina that I have already built up and should I do a run on the treadmill afterwards or something?
I tried the W1R1 on my own outside this morning just to see how it feels. I managed it but boy was it a struggle!! Feels a bit like I have wasted the last 8 weeks!! I don't start proper with this for two weeks as there is a holiday and we both wanted to stick to the program without a gap. During that time I intend to go back to the treadmill and consolidate my 30 minutes a few times (partly so I can get a graduation badge!!) but has any body else done this or got suggestions on how to carry on?
