Why do Competitive Marathoners Do Tempo Runs on a Treadmill When the Weather Is Bad?


Outdoor runs can offer beautiful scenery, fresh air, varied terrain and actual course training. But when bad weather compromises your outdoor running route with rain, wind, snow or worse, you may want to take your training inside to the treadmill. Competitive marathoners use treadmills for training both during bad weather and as an integral part of their consistent coached workouts for race preparation. While runners of any distance can incorporate intervals, hill work and tempo runs on treadmills for effective training, marathoners and longer distance runners reap the largest rewards from tempo runs.
