I have new respect for you guys doing this plan on the treadmill rather than outside. With the summer hols over and being back at work I'm now facing doing my Wednesday run either in the dark round the aerodrome (chances of that happening=zero) or by streetlight up and down the hills round here, a prospect I'm not relishing but will probably get round to at some point. So, there being one on ebay fairly locally I 'invested' in a treadmill.
Hubby and son picked it up (and paid for it) after dinner this evening while I went to the gym. I got home, it's set up in the front room (when the novelty has worn off it will live in the shed). I know it's a rest day having done W5R3 yesterday morning, but that's almost 2 days ago, right? So I thought I'd have a quick 'play'. Set it to walk, walked for 30 seconds, increased the speed, OK now I'm running, possibly a bit quicker than outside, 3 minutes later I'd had enough! It's hard work, OK it's uphill, but only slightly. So I got off, turned it off, sat and watched woman on telly making food, thinking I could be running. So I went and got Laura.
We repeated W1R1, walking pace 4.6Kph, not bad, running pace 8.9Kph. At the end of the 20 minutes walk run cycle (I missed out the warm up and am heading for the shower for the cool down) I am dripping with sweat, literally!
So extra Kudos for everyone who is doing these runs on a treadmill, you're working so much harder than I am outside!
