This is interesting for me right now, mainly because after too long road-running I've come to the agonising decision that it's not for me, and I have to go back to the treadmill. I've realised, the hard and painful way, that my body is just not built to cope with the hard unforgiving surfaces when running outside.
I've tried running on grass verges when they are available, but the routes I have to take are mainly pavements - and also, when I did try the grass verge I almost turned my ankle because the ground was so uneven.
So, rather than give up running completely, I've decided to re-join a gym so I can make use of the treadmill again.
And I am actually quite looking forward to getting back on there and trying out all the different programs, both in terms of speed, incline and intervals.
Let's hope it's more gentle on my body than the pavements.
Please read my ticker backwards as I am trying to gain weight.
