(And then try doing it pushing a couple of kids in a pushchair)
I would say, do more real running outside, a treadmill is ok, but its no where near the same as running outside...
Why not do a organised 10K run, then move onto half marathons?
The impact of this is to stigmatise people on benefits,
and we should be deeply worried about that[/redtitle](house of lords debate, talking about Cameron)
I must be one of those rare people who actually prefer treadmill running to running outside.
I like that I can play my ipod loudly without worrying about traffic and / or other people
I like that it's better for my knees than hard pavements
I like that I can time myself, increase the incline when I like, decrease it when I like and ensure that my times are improving every time I run.
Intervals are amazing for increasing fitness quickly. My gym instructor put me on a programme which had hills for 2 minutes followed by flat for 2 minutes. I had to run up the hills and walk the flats. Increased my fitness quicker than anything I've ever tried. Better than running outside any day
Must admit going outside's a bit scary - Im quite happy on the treadmill with the telly on and all those nice digits in front of me (i work out average pace and targets as Im going to keep my brain busy)

treadmills good for crunching the miles in a controlled enviroment
getting out and going for a run over various terrains gives more of a work out IMO
i run around Hollyrood park in Edinburgh
plenty of different routes with mixed terrains and gradients to mix it up
The sites are hundredpushups DOT com and c25k DOT com
I'm not affiliated in any way, but love the fact that I have someone that reminds me what to do and when. Or I'll end up spending my money on gym memberships that I never use...
and your protecting your joints :T
Also thanks for the brilliant site, you've saved us all a fortune and kept businesses honest! And I hadn't realised you were from around my neck of the woods and were born in the same place as me (well according to wikipedia!). Thanks again, and well done!
