Outside or Inside?

So...I am still "training" for the 5k in July but I must confess that the first time I ran OUTSIDE was Monday!!! And can I just say that it is COMPLETELY different from running on a treadmil! I can do pretty good on a treamil but found myself getting tired WAY quicker outside. And this rainy yucky weather we are having isn't helping the progress needing to be had. Oh well...I ran the farthest yet on the treadmil at the gym this morning! Yay!

Wow, a go girl!

I am totally sick of the rain, I can imagine it must be no fun to run in...well, unless you are a boy and jump in every puddle along the route ;-)

Running outside is so much different, once you do it a few times, I bet you will love it. I used to love running when we lived in Bolton. I was always thinking how I could make the run longer...honestly, it is a wonderful way to pray too.

Hope you enjoy your training. Maybe next week will have some sunny days for you?

I prefer outside bc you get away from your end point then you have to run back to it! Plus I can't mentally go below6.0 on the treadmill so it's nice to take it easy for a mile or so outside!
