pedestrian said:100 miles a week is actually further than an average 14 miles per day. And if you're trying to fit that kind of mileage in through the winter months around a full-time job, most of it will be on the roads (and in the dark, I found).
Running on a treadmill is quite different from running on a road. The most important thing to do on a treadmill is set the incline to 1-2 degrees to simulate running on a road. Also the streeses and strains aren't as bad as bio-mechanicaly the two are very different.Forest said:Hi Revenged,
I am only a begginner and have only been running since feb, just up to 3 miles now and up until yesterday i have only been road running, however i went to the gym yesterday and did 3 miles on the treadmill and found it so much easier. i don't know if you get less injury's on the treadmill than the road?
