More On Treadmill Running

We're hopefully moving to some true spring weather, but it never hurts to review the benefits of running on the treadmill.

Several weeks ago, I wrote about some of the positives of using a treadmill, but this post from Patrick McCran of Marathon Nation spells out even more benefits of using a treadmill.

Bottom line: this time of year can still be very dark, cool and wet. The treadmill offers an alternative to running outdoors. It's an especially valuable tool if you're trying to keep up with a training schedule for an event. The treadmill also works great for interval training sessions as it does a good job of "keeping you honest".
