Week 4 run 3 - Outside!!!

I've used the treadmill since starting the programme, but my gym was closed last night, so outside it was. I got rained upon on the way home from work but by the time I'd arrived home it was a lovely evening.

Despite this and the very pleasant semi-rural setting had to run in, this was the hardest run I've done. This was the one where I came closest to stopping and giving up, the one where I totally understand anyone on here wishing and wishing for Laura to tell them it's time to start walking again and the one I won't be repeating in a hurry!

Glad I did it but so glad I'm heading back to the treadmill for Week 5. :-)

  • I am an outdoor runner (on pavement) but I have read by many here on the board that there is a huge difference in treadmill vs outdoors. At least you had the experience and can now go back indoors. Good luck with week 5!

  • You didn't look like you were struggling, you seemed to breeze through it I thought.
