Treadmill vs. Outside Running

[00:52] Some running purists can’t stand the monotony of treadmill running. Others can’t find the motivation to pick up the pace without manual controls in front of them and love the accuracy of doing a structured workout indoors. Neither group is wrong. There is no right or wrong place to run - as long as you’re moving correctly.



[03:50] While some people would prefer to not be on a treadmill there are some benefits to both treadmill and outdoor runs. For example, treadmills are going to be your best friend if you can’t get outside. Both modalities have pros and cons, and each can help you get stronger and faster, whether you’re looking to train for a race or get in a cardio workout.


How to Workout without Either Option

[05:00] When you cannot get on a treadmill and cannot get outside, you can still do indoor running skill and strength workouts. You can do drills and still get your heart rate up real quick.


Stop Running for a While

[8:39] Working on running and strengthening your legs with pulling and drills will make you a better runner.
