Only 5 miles today...I have no legs this week for some reason!

Jorvia - Running outside and running on a treadmill are 2 totally different animals. The important thing about starting to run outside is learning to pace yourself. When running outside start slower than what you think your pace should be. Even if your running pace is no more than what you would think is a fast walk that's ok. You need to build up endurance and muscle memory. Eventually you will find yourself going farther and your pace will naturally get faster. It's not an instant process and takes lots of patience but you will become a better runner if you don't expect too much too soon. Give your body time to realize the paces you are putting it through and you will be rewarded. Good luck!

Jorvia - it definately gets easier after time, one thing I learned was after I hit hard spots I usually get a second wind - I embrace it and keep going. I go at different paces too, look for land marks and tell yourself you'll run to the next stop sign, or mailbox etc... and be patient with yourselfemoticon

I've been trying to become a runner for months. I did about 2/3 of couch to 5k on a treadmill and that was good but I couldn't get to 20 minutes non-stop. When I tried to run outside I could barely run for 3 minutes. How did all of you become runners?

Yes cutieful, you just got to keep it up and it does get easier. Also watch your pace, if you run all out then there's no way you can get a long distance in without injuring yourself.

Just wondering how long it took all of you to be able to run these distances. 5 miles straight? 8 miles straight? Wow!! I finally was able to run a little over 2 miles straight this week. Does it get easier to run further the longer you're doing it? As of right now I am DEAD after 2 miles.

my knee has been bothering me so my trainer suggested I bike for a while so I did not run today.
