Treadmill or dreadmill? The debate among runners could go on and on. Whether you love or loath stationary running, there are times training on the treadmill can be beneficial and ways to do it well.

In this week’s episode we have a deep-dive treadmill talk.

Main Topic: Treadmill or Dreadmill?

We train on a NordicTrack Treadmill at home. (It’s possible we could earn a small commission if you purchase through the link.)

No matter how tough we are or how much we dislike running on the notorious “dreadmill” it can be a place to prevent and recover from injury.

Understanding the strengths and faults of tread-milling can help us to better grasp our training and plan accordingly.

In this episode we talk about

  • Reasons to run on the treadmill
  • Best practices for running on the treadmill

    Any advice you’d give to someone who is new to running and looking for a treadmill? Must-have features or things they should look for in buying a used one?
