Twice this week I’ve used a treadmill at the gym for the 1st time since starting C25k in March this year. I needed to get in a couple of longer runs in preparation for the town&gown 10k on Sunday. I much prefer cross country or road running, but with the nights drawing in and a busy schedule this week hitting the gym seemed like the best option.
Is it just me or is it harder to maintain a good tempo pace on a treadmill, and is it normal to be completely and utterly drenched in sweat at the end of a 16.5k run? I set a 2 degree incline to offset the lack of air resistance, but am a bit concerned about the slower pace and buckets of sweat.
What are your experiences?
Many thanks. Mad D
