I just replied to an answer on my question I posted and thought I might share my thought with everyone else.
I ran 5 k for the first time on a treadmill last Monday and I was convinced that it was going to be so much easier than my usual round th lake run. I was surprised how hard I found it. I listened to homes under the hammer and really missed the music of the podcast, whenever a snippet of music came on I thought oh great here we go, then it was over. The stats were on the screen and it seemed an eternity before each k was clocked up. Also when I got off I nearly fell over, the sensation was horrible according to my daughter I should have walked longer before I got off rather than just press the cool down button.
It is the great outdoors for me even though I either boil or get drenched, but at the end of the day I feel so alive.
Happy training, me again tonight x
