Just been running outside for the first time so far on my couch to 5k journey and I have to say that really hurt. I used to think it was pretty flat where I lived but now it feels like I've been running through the Himalayas. Tarmac is pretty unforgiving too and to that fiery orb in the sky can go to hell. I can't wait for the next Ice Age.
Total drama aside, it went quite well, I covered 4.5k in 27 mins with a warm up and cool down either side.
Glad I've done it tho as I've broke my outside running duck, I couldn't see anyone pointing, staring; no passers-by throwing pies; nor could I hear stifled fits of laughter. Think I'll need to hydrate more and could have done with a banana before hand!
Hopefully next time will be easier.
