Having completed C25K completely on the treadmill (for various reasons but mostly involving dodgy back and ankles), it was always my intention to transition carefully to outside. I decided to use the C25K structure again, but skipping repeat runs as I'm basically just replicating outside what I can already do inside. I'm still doing longer runs inside to keep the distance stamina up.
Turns out I've picked a lovely time of year to do this - so far I've re-run W1R1, W2R1, W3R1, W4R1, W5R1, W5R2, W5R3, and yesterday decided to go for W6R3 and hear again those lovely words "you are a runner"!! I'm really rather enjoying it, and the last couple of runs took my 18 year old son with me - WALKING beside me! Hmm, I knew I was slow, deliberately so at this stage, but my aim now is definitely to make him break into a trot occasionally!!
