Yes yes yes! Just returned from my first outdoor run and I LOVED it! Nothing prepared me for wonderful feeling of the cool breeze on my skin. It was great- and i felt like i belonged to a secret runnners' club as fellow joggers smiled at me as i ran past them. I;ve seen them before but it was great to be acknowledged as a fellow runner!(I've seen dog owners do something similar with each other!) I don't think I ran as fast as I do at the gym but the experience was just so much more enjoyable.
And rather then watch the tv screen I could people watch and observe the waves breaking on the seafront
I've decided to build up speed on the treadmill and also do runs in the outdoors.
Thanks to all of you for encouraging me to exchange the indoors for the outdoors. xxxx
