Annoyingly I could not get the television on the treadmill to go off. This was very distracting. But on reflection, the mere fact that I was more distracted by that, and less distracted by trying to run, is probably a good sign!
I have tried doing the C25k outside but there are so many reasons why I prefer to stick to the treadmill at the moment. I know that I am less likely to back out of it in the controlled and predictable gym environment. This means I will achieve my fitness goals in the foreseeable future. Once I have done this and I am able to run for 30 minutes on the treadmill, I will start incorporating outside runs again, even if that means returning to earlier weeks of C25k. Let's face it, useful though it is, the treadmill is just plain boring.
Still, I completed my run. I am happy. To be able to run for 90 seconds and be distracted by something outside myself is a great achievement for me!
