I draw pandas all day.
That's why I find treadmills really annoying. Even with rain, why would you not rather go to the woods? I ask myself this question whenever returning from a run and passing one of these large-window gyms with all the people on the treamills...
In my case, it's psychological and irrational, but... The feeling when you run on a treadmill -> I'm just a person doing sport like anyone else. Running outside -> who am I running from? What am I running from? Too many watching eyes etc. I repeat, I know it's irrational, but that's the feeling, I can't help it. Maybe if I had a running companion... But then, again, due to my affinities and body type, I prefer swimming and the bicycle anyway. Running is not my style.
I get the point. I also feel more comfortable when running in rather lonesome locations.
I live in the desert where it is often 110 F in the summers. I could drive to the mountains, but it is a couple of hours each way. The treadmill allows me to exercise in air-conditioned comfort.
I agree. Even though I'm in a wheelchair. Why work-out on a treadmill. You have the same boring view the whole time (or a tv). If you go out and running, you can see all different stuff, and in the woods the beautiful nature, over time all the seasons. So much better than a boring treadmill! Same with stationary bikes. Go bike outside! I usually hate gym-equipment. Let me work-out for real with my own body! It gives so much more satisfaction.
Is that all?
Don't "Tread" lightly.... I regret nothing!!!!
