Tread Mill Running and Winner of Sweaty Band Giveaway!
I have to say I hate treadmill running! I got a treadmill about a year ago and we did not have the space for it so my mom bought it from me. I had not gone running for 2 days and I was headed to my parents. I decided that I would run on the treadmill for a mile when I got there.
I felt like I was running faster then I do outside. I tried to push myself to not walk at all and then I noticed my time at the end of the mile…a little over 17 minutes! What in the world? I was sweating and about to pass out after the mile. I can run a mile outside in 13 minutes! It took me 4 minutes longer on a treadmill? How does that work? I know I am new to running but how does it take a person longer to run on a treadmill then outside. I walk way more during my mile run outside then I did on the treadmill. If you have ideas about this I would love to discuss it.
So there ya go I don’t see myself being a treadmill runner at all. I will stick to the great outdoors.
