Hello everyone on this bright sunny day.
Just a bit of background, I'm using the Ease into 5k app, downloaded through iTunes (sorry Laura) ;.) and am on W8R2, which for me is the penultimate run prior to finishing the programme (I'll then move onto the Bridge 2 10k app)... have to say I've found the app brilliant, although it doesn't have the support of Laura, but means I can run to my own music.
Anyway, I digress. So far all of my runs have been on my treadmill at home, which is perfect for me as my partner works most evenings and I have a little boy tucked up in bed. BUT I would like to venture outside to see how the run compares. The trouble is I've built up this terrible mental block about venturing outside. I'm worried about how far I will be able to run (I know I'll probably see a big difference initally), what if I can't do it. I have managed to get through each week without having to walk and don't want going outside to knock my lovely built up confidence. What would you suggest? Finishing the programme and going from there or taking the plunge?
Is there anyone else out there who is only doing the programme on a treadmill?
