Moving my C25k back outside! YIKES.
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
About a month ago I was forced to the gym to do my c25k because it was raining outside. I thought it would be harder, and it turns out, I did much better. So, I stayed with it, but knew I'd eventually need to head back outside.
I did just that, this morning and boy was it different. My first jog only lasted about 3 min... which was awful because I've had no problem doing 5 min on the treadmill, heck, for a first run, 8 min wasn't a huge deal... so 3 min was pretty pitiful... until... I realized something. I'm jogging faster outside. On the treadmill it takes just under 4 min to jog 1/4 mile. This morning I did it in just under 3 min. So, I don't feel so bad now. I'm going to try to stick to running outside for now. I did 3 quarter miles today and ended up going further, distance wise, than I do at the gym.
Not a bad morning!
