Yes, I do "run in this." So should you. The weather is never as bad as it seems from behind your office or car window.
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
If I use the TM and run with the stride and what feels like the speed I am accustomed to will that still give me the same run as if I were to run outside.
Generally speaking, any difference between your normal running, and a treadmill, is probably in your head.
You may be right, but whenever I use a treadmill I too feel like its harder work than road running. Since I use a treadmill very infrequently -- maybe once every four months -- I think I'm simply unaccustomed to the feel and rhythm, and it makes it harder. HR readings confirm this, so I'm not sure I can agree that its all in my head.
But, I again go back to why rain was keeping the OP indoors....
Treadmills always seem hard to me. I think there are couple reasons:
- It's monotonous
- At least in my case, when I'm outdoors, my pace tends to fluctuate a bit so if I'm a little tired I slow down and speed back up a bit later. On a treadmill, you're forced to keep running at the same pace.
