Myth or Fact?

Answer: FALSE

It depends on your goals! Both have their pros and cons.

Running outside:

  • Being outdoors has mental health benefits
  • More uneven and challenging terrain
  • New scenery can boost your motivation
  • May engage more muscles
  • More bone-building benefits because of harder surfaces
  • Is free (except for the cost of sneakers)

Treadmill running:

  • Safer at night or during bad weather
  • More control over pace, incline, and intervals
  • Even, controlled surface may mean fewer injuries
  • Less impact than running outside
  • Can be boring
  • More expensive than outdoor running
