Feeling very proud of myself

I've been doing the programme on a treadmill up until now. I ventured out for my first run outfdoors today on a busy common with my other half who is an experienced runner. I was really not looking forward to it but ended up thoroughly enjoying it. I actually felt like a 'proper' runner for the first time

I ended up doing 5.2km in 34 mins alternating 4m run 2m walk... a lot shorter durations runs than I do on the app at week 7 but wanted to take it easy.

I'm going to start moving one of my weekday runs outside from now on as well as joining my other half at the weekend.

Well done! Running outdoors is such fun - glad you've got the bug!


Sounds great Cliff.

Happy running outside.😊


It's funny how running outside makes you feel like a 'proper' runner isn't it?!

Well done!
