So ... I went for my first 'proper' outdoor run on Monday, should have been Week 7 R1 ... but failed miserably. Only jogged just over 8 minutes then walked and jogged the rest. Maybe it was because I'm used to running on the treadmill where the pace is constant, but anyway I was fairly gutted.
Anyway, tried again yesterday with the pace of a limping tortoise and managed to do it ... but after 19 minutes was on count-down all the way - certainly couldn't have speeded up at the end, was more ready to collapse! Hopefully it will get better as I run more outside - so chalking this one up as a cautious and muted success!
