Treadmill at the gym
Near weights – so I can lift, too
Near other cardio machines – if I want to switch gears
You don’t really go anywhere
I find it harder to run on one than outside
Crowded gyms are possible
People talking nearby
Sightseeing while running
You are moving forward
Experience the community in a different way than driving through it
Cars – Crossing streets can be a challenge
Stop lights can cause unneeded breaks
Iowa temperatures in the winter. Brrr
Running in unfamiliar places can be a challenge
Where am I?
There are pros and cons to running on a gym’s treadmill or outside. I do both depending on the situation and sometimes I run to the gym to lift and then back home.
Two options that we want to keep in our workout options toolbox.
