I actually have the opposite problem. I do really sucky on the treadmill and then when I get outside I make good time.
I get intimidated on the treadmill and I keep the speed moderate for fear that it is going to fast for me. I look down and hear the reving of the machine and I get a bit anxious. I also have a hard time being entertained on the treadmill. Even with a TV monitor on the machine and headphones on, I feel bored.
When I am outside a take a longer stride and set a good pace. I look a the scenery and take in the fresh. I forget about the distance and enjoy myself. I feel more confident outside and push myself a little harder. I have made my best time outside.
Honestly I am not sure why there is such a difference between the two, but I do know that there is a difference.
Believe in what you are doing, let nothing stand in your way and make the impossible a reality.
