that sounds like a good solution for me - use the treadmill and then outside at the weekend - do you still run fast on the treadmill or limit your speed?

Just a thought.- Do you have the treadmill at a 1% incline? Apparently this makes it more "equivalent" to running outside...

I run at a speed of 8 (you know what I mean?) and a gradient of 1%. I am on the interval training so I run 3 mins at the mo. and walk one minute x

When I run outside it is so much harder so I run really slow and steady x

If you want to train more for outside I would recommend leg strengthening excersises in the gym a couple of times a week and hill training. Also Cross training x

Hope that helps x

l p - i have just started running at the 1% incline and it is definitely different now although i do tend to use the random program anyway
f p - i am running at 8 too but on the treadmill i just keep going so sometimes i can run for 40 mins, othertimes 10 and ive had it...maybe i should do the run/walk on both the treadmill and the road

Definately a good idea.

The interval training (run/walk) buids your endurance and stamina. If you can run for 10 mins sometimes, I would probably say start at run eights mins and walk two mins, three times over, for 3 or four times a week. Two sessions in the gym and two outside.

Then go in to run 10 walk 2, then run 12 etc. Soon you should be able to run for 1/2 hour or more non-stop. Good luck, you are doing better than me already. I am only on run 3 walk one.
