Treadmills are great machines for getting a quality leg workout and improving cardio. For many people, using a treadmill is convenient and effective because you may have it in the house, so getting good exercise is easier. However, for the best workout on a treadmill, there are certain things you may do to ensure you strengthen your running abilities.
A few weeks ago, on a early Sunday morning training run I had a close call, a very close call. We all know it is safest to run in the daylight, but with 10+ miles on the training plan, sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day. On this particular Sunday morning I knew I needed to run 14 miles. I had carefully planned a 7 mile out and back course. Throughout the run I felt great. At mile 10 I was still feeling great, that is until my close encounter.
