After barely being able to run for a bus, I’ve completed weeks 1-4 on a treadmill at my local gym, and decided to redo week 4 as I found it quite tough and get me in a better place for the longer runs in week 5. Was getting bored of the treadmill and decided to take advantage of the lighter evenings and run in my local park, and it was horrendous. I got out of breath so quickly and was barely able to run for 2 mins, when I had been able to push myself to 5 mins straight on the treadmill. Now feeling totally dejected, after sticking to running every other day like clockwork, it’s like all my hard work has been for nothing. I really want to run outdoors, so do I go back a few weeks and start again running outside, or am I doomed to face the boring view of the treadmill for the next 5 weeks? Any advice very gratefully received!
