I did that some years ago. It's quite different running outside but it's just acclimatisation, to uneven surfaces, harder surfaces, varying inclines ( up and down are both challenging and maintaining your oace, it's easy to go too fast outside. You might need two or three runs or two weeks outside but you'll be fine


Maybe it would be good for you to give it a go outside beforehand a few times, even if it’s a small run just so you get the feel for it Paul, it might be better than going straight into the 5K park run. 🙂👍

yeh i might give it ago before i do a park run.but i am going to do the c25k first on tredmill

dont feel comfy outside yet.then i will do 5k on mill then outside cheers

Well done so far. Personally, I found running outside to be much better than treadmill. Found it much more interesting. Your call but I think you might find it more enjoyable.
