Those of you who know me or those of you who have been reading the blog for a few years now probably already know that when it comes to running, I ALWAYS prefer to run a treadmill vs. running outside. I know that pretty much puts me in the minority (from what I’ve heard from many of you!), but I just really like the treadmill (and I have a ton of treadmill workouts you guys can check out, too!) and there are so many treadmill benefits.
We recently plugged ours back in down in the basement and we’ve been using it here and there as I get back into the whole fitness routine thing. I also broke out my Fitbit Charge and have started using that again, too, to track my daily steps. It’s amazing how easy it is to hit 10,000 steps when you’re home with a toddler and infant all day!
Back to the treadmill though. I get it…it’s not always the most popular choice (that’s why so many people call it the dreadmill, not the treadmill, right?).
But the right approach can help you transform your treadmill into a workout that builds strength and improves performance. You can create hills on a treadmill. You can tweak your form on a treadmill. Skip the handrails and incorporate some interval approaches to your treadmill time. Go ahead and mix things up!
