Sara Jane's Training Journal in Online Training Journals & Blogs Posted January 13, 2012 Dylan, I love running outside and I hate the treadmill compared to it but I really like running in general.. I almost fell off the damn thing the first two times I used it. I go back and forth.. I do a half hour on the treadmill an a half hour on the elliptical, which is a nice change of pace and easier on my knees. I usually run for an hour and 15 minutes outside when I can but I am saving that for better weather. As of today.. I say elliptical, tomorrow treadmill. Sometimes I throw in the stationary bike too which I don't mind so much when the treadmill is not in the books for the day. I hope this helped!!
