Is running on a treadmill just as beneficial or more beneficial than running outside? Or is one more harmful then the other? Some scientific research has show that running on the treadmill is basically the same as running outside. Actually, there are some workouts that can be done better on a treadmill than outside. Although, running on a treadmill can be extremely boring and can cause shin splints faster than running outside. So I believe that running on a treadmill and running outdoors have the same affects.
Some benefits of running on a treadmill vs outdoors:
1. Can run when the weather is bad
2.Simulating race courses while indoors-
3. Fluid and Carbohydrate intake
Benefits of running outside vs Indoors:
1. Can not learn how to pace yourself on a treadmill
