I am always a little nervous to run outside... I don't like knowing that people can 'see' me (even though I know that they're not even looking at me) and I associate a huge mental block with running outside - that it's harder, there's inclines, what if I get thirsty, etc.
But I am going on vacation with my partner in two weeks, and we'll be doing some hikes and jogs together so the past couple months I've been trying to prepare.
Last night, I figured that running outside is the next step in that preparation - since of course we will be hiking and jogging outside! I haven't gone jogging outside in probably a year or more, I (still) smoke, and I've only been getting back into exercise for about 4 months. BUT, I put all those thoughts out of my head, and even though I was terrified, I went out jogging.
And now for the real **woo hoo**, I ran 4km in 25 minutes. This was my first jog outside in who knows how long! Wow!
