Are You Cheating Yourself by Choosing the Treadmill?
What's Better: the Treadmill or the Open Road?

Treadmill running is kind of a mindless run for me and I get bored quickly, but running outside and enjoy nature I can go on and on.
There is an advantage to the treadmill. If you have bad weather, you can still work out
Either choice is better than nothing
Oddly, I don't have the balance to be on a treadmill, but I love ellipticals!
Good info. Love to incorporate both as the weather and time allow.
Good information. Thank you.
As a long distance runner I try to run outside as much as possible but if it's not safe then I always opt for the treadmill. It should never be looked at as a bad thing. It is a safe, and reliable option for many.
I bought and used a treadmill originally because I was too embarrassed to walk/run outside. Now I use it for running at night or when the weather is nasty. It removes my excuses.
I bought a treadmill for the fact that I can exercise any time during this virus situation. I love a TM.
I bought a good one this time b/c I can exercise multiple times a day. I have a membership at the Y but I have problems with the way they are going to re-open. I am a senior citizen - I need to keep my family and I safe. I have free weights for strength training. I have been walking in my community at 5 am. But now with everything opening up before essential testing, people are not wearing masks now. Even at 5am there has been a great increase of walkers and runners all without masks. My husband and I walk in the middle of the street to keep the social distancing when we can. In the afternoon, it is very crowned at times with all the kids being home from school.
