Personally, I much prefer outdoor street, trail running and find it to be more demanding on me, basically because it is not a "controlled" environment, and there is more to deal with as far as wind resistance, hilly terrain, uneven pavement - so you are constantly changing your stride, or speed or footing. Something I read about "running outdoors, versus treadmill" puts it like this: "The treadmill is slightly different, slightly easier. On the treadmill, your foot hits the tread and pushes off, but it also "slides" backward effortlessly on the tread, as the tread moves back around. Outdoors, on the pavement, or grass, dirt, trail, etc., your legs are purely propelling you forward." But there is alot of debate over it. It really is a matter of personal preference, what you will be inspired more on a daily basis to stick with. If you are training for a 10K race, I would suggest running outdoors to better match the same conditions that you will be running on race day.Katelin7141 wrote:What's the difference of doing cardio on a treadmill or jogging on the street?
