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.

A treadmill can also help you train effectively – while following a training plan – such as for a half marathon or full marathon, you will have specific miles and paces to hit.

How better to follow this plan than by measuring these metrics precisely on a treadmill?
