My city has an absolutely fantastic park, and there’s a long track that extends from it along the edge of the town. It’s a gorgeous, tree-lined path perfect for everything from walking your dog to riding a bike to running.
Now that the temperatures are calming down a little here on the east coast (I’ve been waking up to 70-degree temperatures instead of 90), I’m moving some of my workouts outside again and, if you haven’t already guessed, that means hitting this track every morning.
Don’t get me wrong: I’m no stranger to treadmill walking and I know there are lots of great treadmill workouts out there. I also know that for some, treadmills are the only option for walking, jogging, or running.
However, for me, when it comes to walking on a treadmill vs. outside walking (or running!), I’m going to choose outside workouts every time.
