Im new to running outside. I have been running with my girls who are at week 6 of c25k & we have run 1 run of each week outside & they do the other 2 inside on the treadmill at home, so I have slowly got used to the outside world over the last 2 months.
anyways, am on week 11 of a 12 week 10mile plan & today the run was 60mins, which I decided to do outside. after stopping my legs went to jelly! last week I ran for 84mins on the treadmill & have run 40 mins outside before now without these horrible wobbly legs.
my jelly legs were very uncomfortable with pain behind the knee. does anyone else get jelly legs as well??
I did lots of stretching when I got home & so far they seem happy enough so Im just wondering if it is due to my legs getting used to inclines up & down & different surfaces. prior to stopping, 55min in I found my pace & running was really easy & natural & comfy so am a bit confused about why the leg thing.
I drank almost half a litre of squash whilst I ran so dont think I was dehydrated & had breakfast over an hour before I ran.
