If you live in a cold climate, it is about this time of year that running outside loses some of its appeal. If you're training for an event, you don't have the option of slacking off so what's the best plan of attack? Health on the Run takes a look at the pros and cons of training indoors. ~js
When it comes to treadmills, it seems like runners either love them or hate them. While some don’t mind running in place, others morally oppose these machines with every fiber of their body, choosing to brave the elements rather than resign themselves to the torture of the “dreadmill.” Personally, I don’t find the treadmill to be all that awful. It’s not my first choice, especially these days when running outside is so beautiful and interesting. I didn’t step on the treadmill once while marathon training this past summer. I had absolutely no desire to be confined to the gym when I could be frolicking through the hills of Vermont. But now? It’s a different story.
