problem is, last night i had a whole package (4 treats) of trader joe cookie ice cream bars.

I'd consider running this evening, nothing too fast if you're still sore but give it a mile and see how you feel then. You'll probably loosen up and feel better.

Speaking of, my calves are still sore from POSE but I ran another 4 this morning (couldn't sleep) and they still burn a bit but at least it distracts me from the thumb I hit with a hammer last night. Damn thing swelled up and turned purple and I iced it the rest of the evening. Still a bit stiff today.

Just say NO to Ice cream here and there. Eat more normal food.

Dude, STATS are made-up. Facts are still facts. Outside of Dumb Threads, that is.

Today: 4 miles, 35 minutes. Tired and sore from yardwork which included chopping and splitting firewood on Sunday.

I`m new to running. I can walk forever but I can't run outside. I can run for 1 mile on speed 5.5 no problem on a treadmill. I feel like I`m going to die after just 3-4 blocks outside... any tips...

yeah, i used to be in the same boat as you. recently started using the school track field to run after finding the gym too crowded. thought i was going to die after a mile , which was weird since i can run 2.5-3 miles pretty normally on a treadmill at about 6.0-6.3.

The difference here is speed perception. When everyone in a gym in running in place, you don't really notice speed differences too much. Once you're outside, you have a better sense of speed and distance, and are likely to try and run as fast as you might if you were playing football, or basketball. Running at 5.5 would make you feel like you were going too slowly, especially if you're seeing other people run faster than you. It's mentally difficult to pace yourself if you feel like a slowpoke doing so.

Next time you're out there, calculate how long it takes you to run half a mile, and then compare it to how long a similar distance would take on the treadmill. I'll wager that your outdoors time is considerably faster.

Of course, your tiredness might have to do with hot weather, bad roads, other factors, but I thought I'd throw this possible explanation into the ring as well.

16km in 1:19, shaved 1 minute off my best

also running on treadmill is a bit easier than running outside.

the treadmill works to go past you below your feet so relatively you dont have to exert yourself to go forward but more on going upward on each step.
running outside you have to exert yourself forward.

6 km in exactly 30 minutes. First work out in over a month.
