Treadmills can be an excellent tool for getting the miles in during your marathon training; in this post, we look at the best treadmills for marathon training.
While most runners prefer to get outdoors, sometimes it’s simply not that easy. Weather, temperature, and time constraints can make it impractical to go outside – so naturally runners look for other options.
Having a treadmill in the garage or basement can allow you to train efficiently at home, without having to take the extra steps required to train outdoors or at the gym.
How better to follow this plan than by measuring these metrics precisely on a treadmill?
I’ve spent a lot of time on treadmills (I once did an 8-hr treadmill run) – whether it’s due to poor weather outside, travelling, or just trying to squeeze in a quick run – treadmill running can be an awesome tool for any distance runners-in-training.
