I enjoy both but I find when I walk around the neighborhood I feel all around better. The fresh air, sun on my face, cool breeze. I can also think about things better and clear my mind. When on a treadmill I think more about the machine; my pace, its weird sound it makes, other people on them, trying not to trip. Think I might go for a walk now later after dinner.

Walking is my favorite exercise. However, I have had plantar fasciitis and heel spur, both gotten at ages 43 and 49, on both feet - with complications on one foot at the later age ...

Now I am 59, and quite a bit lighter than I had been. Treatment conservative. Walking slow, AND OUTDOORS, including steep hills.

I limp IN PAIN on a level-graded treadmill at 1.8 mph, after 10 minutes, no matter what my weight, no matter how new my orthotics. I refuse to use a cane while using the treadmill. I am agile and need NO cane to walk outdoors. And it's my favorite price (= $$$$-FREEEEE ...)

I think I get a better workout using the treadmill. My pace is faster and I push myself more than if I am just walking around the house or outside.

Moving is better than sitting around though.

I like the treadmill for pacing, and I definitely prefer it to the elliptical.

but I also love walking outside, year-round

indoor walking is not something I do very often, but will when I need to get in some exercise and that's the only option

Treadmills are awesome for the bad weather days. I also love the programs that let you change your incline and speed with the song you have playing or a program you uploaded.

Otherwise I just walk up and down my driveway that is about 1/4 mile long. I don't think I could stand walking in the hallway at home. Maybe at work where I can visit 7 different floors and wander over the entire hospital but not at home. Too... blegh.

Besides... using a treadmill I don't have to pay much attention to rocks and sticks and cars and can listen to audiobooks. emoticon

I have only used a treadmill three times in my life and it will do if I really had to use it, but I am not afraid to walk outside in any kind of weather.

treadmill makes my legs/feet hurt. I prefer free walking. But if I was trying to get a good heart rate and the house isn't huge....I would do the treadmill.

When I want to work out when I'm at work and the weather isn't cooperating, I've been known to walk the halls and stairs in my office building. I get some strange looks sometimes but you do what you have to sometimes.

I'd go crazy walking up and down the hallways. If I can't get outside to exercise and the treadmill is my only option, other than the hallway, then I'd choose the treadmill.

I tried to run to try out new shoes in the tiny corridors of a store. It's moving but it isn't a workout.

Depends on how big the halls are, I guess. If it's like 'mall walking", then great. If it is narrow short corridors, rhen I'd choos a treadmill. But whatever works for you!
