Second venture outside today and something odd is happening. My fastest treadmill 5k was 36 mins and the treadmill tends to propel you forward, so I assumed that treadmill would be much faster than outside, where you have different terrains, roads to cross, etc. I ran outside to the stamina podcast today (btw my short stride is nowhere near where it should be, is that a height thing, I'm short? Anyway back to the point, I ran 7.5k in total with the first 5k at 32 mins, which I was so so pleased about. The last 2.5 k home was much slower and the run took 49 mins in total. I'm really pleased with my slow but steady progress ( not so much in terms of speed or distance, but it seems I get irritable if I don't run regularly) and THAT is what is making me really really happy. I don't just want to run, I HAVE to run. What a wonderful feeling it is.
BTW, how do I purchase a t shirt?
