Theres allways two sides.. But after going for a run on the streets i found it so much easier. The miss's gave me a website she goes on and you can make your own route from your house with markers. Its a satelite image from were you want it. I felt more determined in finishing and with the tredmill im mostly holding onto the bars. I allso scratched neally 2 mins off my time

Heres the website www.goodrunguide.co.uk

Outside/terrains anyday.

Somebody who's only ran on treadmills will most likely not get the same times outside, especially due to the wind/different terrain types and the varying gradiants

Another site like the one you listed is mapmyrun.co.uk which I found on here, very good site- you don't have to sign up either.(For the lazy ones)

You're only advised to practice running on a treadmill in order to pass your PJFT. The vast majority of your runs should be outdoors.

I'd say if your in training I'd go for an outside run as it works on your stabilisers more due to getting blown around by the wind and the uneven terrain.

I also find it's more motivating too, as your actually going somewhere!

hmm....treadmill is good to initially get *text deleted* cadio up on , and also if your recovering from an injury ,as if u pull a muscle or ligament *text deleted* wont be 4 miles from home ! bar that tho id deffinatly say outdoors - the Garmin Forerunner 101 or 201 is great for measuring *text deleted* distances AND *text deleted* pace, i got one for 50£ off ebay and it makes *text deleted* outdoor run much much more satisfying
