Hi everyone! I'm new here, and already have a question for you
I've been doing the C25K on and off for most of the year, falling off the wagon a couple of times due to minor injuries and illness. I have finished Week 5 a few times though, and was really chuffed to have run non-stop for 20 minutes!
I run on a treadmill, and last week finished Week 6, running for 25 minutes and covering 3km, my best so far. A few weeks ago, thinking I was on target, I signed up to do a 3.3km fun run.... it's a week on Sunday....
So this week I thought I'd better try running outside, to prepare for the fun run. And it was awful. I've run outside twice and couldn't keep going for more than 10 minutes either time. I'm sure it must be a mental thing, considering my treadmill runs, but I'm really starting to panic about the fun run next week!
Do any of you have any advice about making the change from treadmill running to running outdoors? I'd really appreciate it! Thank you
