Haha, that's nuts. At least we had a crash mat behind the treadmill when I did a VO2 test Chris.

I use treadmills mainly when the weather is minging (which up here can be any time of the year). I probably get a more varied workout speedwise as I will keep altering it, usually in a kind of multi-pyramid session.

Luna - nope there was just a warning not to stand behind any runner on the treadmill. PHD students doing things on the cheap!

I use an old treadmill in the garage (Thinking of upgrading) when it's too late or weather is too bad. But interestingly my physio recommends them for returning from hamstring problems (which I have) as apparently they reduce strain on the hammy - makes sense as the belt does some of the work returning the leg / foot to starting position - if that makes sense

Got something to say?

I am curious to know how many people on here regularly use the treadmill to do their runs?
Being so...
