I was forced to run on the treadmill on Monday due to pouring rain.I followed lots of your helpful advice and decided to do interval running.I did a 5 min warm up walk then started the speed podcast but jogging the warm up and cool down.I jogged at 8km/hr and ran at 9.5km/hr which was really difficult (had a couple of pauses/extended recoveries) but then jogged comfortably at 8km/hr to complete 5km to finish.
Today I was due to do a longer run outside to start my final week of B210K.After working in my injury unit yesterday I have become scared how many people are falling and breaking bones in this cold weather.Reluctantly as it was -1 when I set out this morning I decided to resort to the treadmill again I managed my first 22minute interval at 8.3km/hr without stopping then had a 2 min recovery before my last 22min run.I did however have to press pause twice on this last interval.However I did manage 7.5km on a treadmill (a bonus for me)
I hope I'll be able to do some outside running this winter,if not it will just have to be a repeat of the above on the treadmill.
I also had a very upsetting experience on Tuesday during a routine Drs appointment.She asked me to step on the scales,then informed me my BMI was 32!!!!!!!!!!! So all this lovely running and much improved stamina has still not helped my weight I have to now consider attending a weight management programme as 11.5 stone for my 5ft tall is OBESE :((
