I've read the various posts on here and other articles about transitioning from the treadmill to running outside, while I could quite happily run on the treadmill I have in the conservatory I want to do some running outside.
As I'm due to do W6R3 on Saturday I've decided I'm either going to pick a local park or use the local canal toe path (more like 3-4ft wide compacted hardcore path) and attempt to do the 25 minute none stop run on that.
I am expecting some issues on pace, I'll try to work through that as I go, I do run with the treadmill ranging from 2-4 degrees depending on what length of run I am doing.
To be honest, if I make it to 50% I'll be happy, the aim is obviously to complete it but I'd much rather start transitioning now as opposed to in a few weeks when I'm running for 28-30 minutes on the treadmill.
I know on W6R3 Laura tells you when you have completed 12.5 minutes of the 25 minute run, so I'll park the car, do the warm up walk and then jog until Laura say's that's half way at that point, I'll turn around and start heading back to the car.
Of course, pace issues aside, I'll be aiming for slow and steady but don't be surprised if I chalk this one up to a practice run.
