So today's run was my first road run, I've avoided running along the road like the plague up until now due to feeling silly / worried what people would think/ not wanting to be spotted. However with the runs now getting longer there is only so many times I can go round in circles in my local park, so I thought 'sod it', faced my fears, and LOVED IT! Who would of thought?!
I found it made the whole run feel so much easier as I felt it had a bit of purpose to it doing a big loop, rather than just up and down the same park. Kinda wishing I'd done this sooner..!
My only worry was the impact running on the pavement would have on my knees? Do you think this is something to worry about or should it be ok at this stage of the programme?
Time for the big 20 minute one next...gulp..!
