Wednesday, 3/16/11 - 2.12 miles in ~34 min (~16:02 pace) - walk/jog
I attempted a Week 4 C25K workout outside in my neighborhood yesterday. It was way too nice out not to - about 60 degrees and sunny! I *really* tried to convince myself that jogging outside on pavement wasn't nearly as hard as I remembered.
But you'll notice I used the word "attempted" in that first sentence there - couldn't quite get through that last 5 minute run interval. On the treadmill it's not a problem.
Must get used to jogging outside on the hard ground! It's also more difficult to pace myself; on the nice cushion-y treadmill I can just set it at 4.0 and go at the right pace automatically...outside I end up going faster than that without realizing, and I get out of breath.
Pretty stiff today...need to stretch more! One day in the future this stuff will be a piece of cake!
