C25K training plan. It was a breeze.
The plan only required me to run for 1 minute at a time and I just logged a 6 minute run on my own on Thursday. All of the prep work I've been doing has built up my endurance. So now as I follow the training plan I am already ahead of it in terms of stamina and fitness.
It was weird running on pavement vs. a treadmill. The ground seemed to have more give under my feet. I have been advised by some runners that I know that if I am going to run in a 5K that I have to put in time off-treadmill because of the differences. It is a beautiful day so that I thought I would take advantage and get cracking on some actual road time.
I felt awkward running in public like that but strangely confident at the same time.
I'm a runner! How cool is that?
