Treadmill Running 12 Tips


Treadmill running is an alternative way to run if you do not have time to go outside due to some reasons such as bad weather or not just in the mood to go out. Personally, I use the treadmill before going to work. 5 to 8 minutes will suffice already depending on the available time so as not to be late for work. Before, I rarely use the treadmill for running but since this is one of the available alternative for me to keep fit, I am now a treadmill believer. Treadmill running is an additional training for my long distance running adventures.

If you are browsing for some tips to make your treadmill running worthwhile, here are twelve (12) recommendations. 
  1. Make sure you warm up.
  2. Use a slight incline.
  3. Don't make it too steep.
  4. Don't hold onto the handrail or console.
  5. Don't forget your cool down.
  6. Don't lean forward.
  7. Pay attention to your stride.
  8. Work on improving your stride count.
  9. Listen to music.
  10. Visualize a route.
  11. Don't forget to hydrate.
  12. Don't look down.
