We're on holiday in the northern wastelands of Northumberland this week and today I was due to do W7R1. All my C25K runs so far have been on the treadmill, although I've done a couple of other "runs" outdoors, so this was a bit of a first. I set off at about 7.10 this morning - I'm not familiar with the area so I went backwards and forwards a little bit around the camp site and nearby - no big hills but just the slight but long inclines made it tougher than on the treadmill, and I found it strange not being able to glance at the treadmill to see how long I'd been running for. It seemed a very long 25 minutes and I wasn't very fast but I felt very pleased when I finished. As a bonus, I saw a heron in flight above the river and lots of fluffy bunnies hopping around. And it was lightly raining, something I've discovered is rather pleasant. With the 5 minutes warm up walk and 5 minutes cool down, I only covered 2.98 miles altogether but I'm just glad to have finished. I'll try and explore a bit on the next run And I've walked another 7 miles since this mornings run, so I'm feeling pretty good
