    The cool thing about this treadmill is that it changes all that stuff for you. One of the preset work outs will have you doing 5mph at a 6% incline then it will beep and change it to 7 mph at a 8% incline. So unless I make the changes myself I really never have to look down at the control panel.

    Minor point and don't mean to upset. There is a marked difference in using the Treadmill as compared to Running. I used to do a 30min warm-up (with the machine at full incline as part of a variable running programme - UK sp). However it was fairly easy as the Treadmill cushions the running of the user. Running my local Heath, the major physiological difference is Road Shock and its affect on tempering tendons and connective tissues etc.

    Another difference is the impact of the Weather. Rain, freezing rain, hail, cold, wind, sun - they have more of a psychological effect. You need to develop some Character to cope with these.

    I won't labour it, if you're happy with the Treadmill, then that's fine. It will give you good cardio fitness in a safe environment and you can stop when you want. As part of an overall programme that's fine.

    If you are ever persuaded to run a Fun Run or similar, don't be too surprised if it's more "wearing" than your usual Treadmill routine.

    Every Good Wish.

    I remember someone once telling me that running on the road is actually not the same as running at 0 incline. You need to set it at 1.0. Not sure if it's true, but it's the rule of thumb I use on the treadmill. I mostly prefer outdoor running though. As far as the weather goes, the big thing is not having wind resistance in your face sometimes. All in all, I'd say that ANY running is good for you. If you enjoy it, I wouldn't sweat the small stuff.

    Also, you don't need to be running for an hour.

    Google HIIT and give it a try.

    Oddly enough, I am actually faster on the road than I am on the treadmill. Its probably just a matter of it being what my body is more accustomed to. Running is good for you either way, its all just a matter of preference.

    Thanks for the tip Asriel. I googled it up and then spoke to my MMA coach about it tonight at bjj class. Said we can go over some of it tomorrow after kickboxing class.

    I went on vacation and only ran on a treadmill. Man what a mistake. After 5 weeks of that I tried to keep up with the rest of my crew and it was embarassing. You can't compare running on a road to running on a treadmill IMO. If your light jogging you might not notice it too much but anything faster and I think you will.

    A treadmill almost pulls you along and it can lend itself to a false sense of accomplishment.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    I posted a thread similar to this a while back:

    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=59630

    Some really good advice in there. Read it.

    May i also suggest Swimming? To be honest, swimming is wonderful for loosing weight, if you can swim. if so, head down to the local pool and punch out a Kilometer every few days, depending on your schedule. If not you can look into doing water Aerobics, casual water polo or water running (exactly what it sounds like).

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    It's because of all the cars. Run on the pavement instead, and you won't have to go quite as fast.
