Winter running in the midwest isn’t for everyone. If you don’t want to put on the ski mask and fair the frosty wind, a treadmill is a great option. Some bonuses with treadmill running include:
1. You can watch a show or movie to help pass the time.
2. Treadmills are a little easier on your joints than running on pavement.
3. You can modify your incline to get a different challenge and do this in intervals to really get your heart rate going
4. No snowy shoes, no slippery ground=less chance of injury during the winter
Keep in mind: because there isn’t any breeze coming through your house or the gym, set up a fan and be sure to have plenty of water to keep cool.
