Hey there,
I have spent some time running on an indoor track, and honestly, I found it WAYYY easier when I took it outdoors. There is a lot more things to take your mind out of the game - scenery, weather, elevation changes, differences in your breathing etc. For sure you will find hills a little harder, and depending on where you live, it may take some time to adjust, but I think you will really like it!!

Cheers,
Trish

If all you get is all you give, then you should only give all you''ve got.

I am almost done with my C25K training! I have been fortunate enough to have access to a track to run on. However, I have been working out of town for 5 months and my gym back home doesn't have a track. I'll have to transition to running outside. It's good thing because I'd like to start signing up for races. I know that a treadmill is way different than running on the road, but I expect that track to road will be an adjustment too. I'll have obstacles and hills to contend with. I'm prepared to lose some distance/speed, but I'm hoping the elevation change will help too. I'll be going from 7,000 ft to 5,200 ft.

What are other peoples experiences going from running on a track to running on the road?
