I really like running on the treadmill.
I know some people think it’s a form of torture …
but I enjoy it. Honestly, I’m kind of intimidated by road running – route planning, avoiding cars, making sure I don’t run in isolated areas, dealing with weather, etc. When I run outside for races, I love it! I love being outdoors and seeing beautiful scenery. Granted, those races have pre-planned routes, water stops and a number of participants (so I don’t worry about running in an isolated area). I’d like to get to the point where I can run comfortably outside on a regular basis but I need your help.
What tips would you give to someone who wants to transition from training on a treadmill to running on the road?
