Week8 run1 treadmill thanks to snow and ice

Week8 run1 treadmill thanks to snow and ice

We are snowed in again so this was a treadmill run. I could have kept going longer but didn't. I'm still getting the hang of the speed it should be set etc. I had it on 3.5 and 4, but it feels so different to running outside that I have no idea if that was right I might even be running out of synch with the belt, I just don't know. I feel pretty good now though.

Thank you. I had a wobble the other day when I couldnt complete the run and felt totally drained. I still kind of dread my outside runs here because of the hills. Sometimes I want to make excuses not to go. I know it’s brilliant training to have to run hills all the time, but it’s so exhausting and relentless. Still, they are MY hills so I shall persevere.

I still have the vision in my head of you running decked in fairy lights😂

what area are you in (general location) with it being so hilly, I was lucky enough to find a relatively level trail to do my c25k on though have since moved on to running hills as I can't avoid them forever and am slowly finding them easier.

Glad you liked the lights run, have done a couple more since then lol and will probably get decked up for new years eve

Oh and we can all have wobbles and bad runs xx

I'm in Chipping Norton. We live on top of a hill. The flattest bit in the town still has up and down bits. When the evenings get lighter, I shall go out to the roads leading out of town, that are flatter but unlit.

I find the hills easier now, well no choice really.

You are very brave running lit up. Most of re hoping NOT to be noticed LOL.

Hey Flick

I'm not too familiar with the treadmill, I used one in the gym, but it was just on time and a slow to medium speed. So I can't offer any help, lol. Which app are you using in your pic? It's easy on the eye, I like that one. Good luck with the treadmill x

I HATE the dreadmill...but needs must...It spoils me for outside as it's so easy to run on it without getting out of breath :( The big gym and running shop dreadmills are much easier as more room to stretch out, but I'm getting used to mine.

The app is Garmin Connect.I have a Garmin watch. It connects with Strava and send my runs there too.
