So you'll have seen in my last post that I struggled to complete this run a couple of days ago on the dreadmill, so today I decided to try again outside. Well, it was difficult as a) I had no idea where I was going and b) it's nice and hilly around here, but I'm happy to say this time I kept going and jogged for the full 20 minutes! Okay, I stopped twice to open the gate in and out of this park I found, but that was less than 5 seconds so I'm not counting that. 😂
It was nice having the wind blowing in my face and even nicer having passers by complimenting me for going out jogging in winter. The soles of my feet hurt a little more than they would on a treadmill but my shins were absolutely fine, so it was pretty easy to keep going. And not having a timer staring you in the face seems to make the time go quicker too. So yeah, that's that and I will be sticking to running outdoors when I can! Onwards!
