Using Treadmill As Training Tool
Unless you live somewhere that is really sunny and warm all of the time, a treadmill will often come in handy for training in the off-season.
I'm not really wild about treadmills myself, but they work in a pinch. If there is ice and snow on the ground where you live and wind chills are well below freezing, then you need to meet a new training partner.
Check out Matt Russ' post from USA Triathlon on how to best use a treadmill for the winter months. He offers some suggestions about considerations for size and features if you're looking to purchase your own. He also shares some important details about effective workouts on the treadmill.
Whether you're using at home or at your favorite health club, the treadmill can keep you up-to-date while the elements aren't so friendly outdoors where you live.
