    you will be able to run 10 miles out side and it will probably be easier, I prefer to run out doors as the treadmill can get very boring, u don’t realise how far you have gone due to not checking the clock all the time like you would on the treadmill,
    you have hills to consider but there is also the down hill which gives u a brake and chance to open up your pace.
    Get out on the open road its much more enjoyable x

    you should be but its not the same i would add an extra couple of miles onto your tred mill training because there are different types of surface you run on out doors, your ankles and knees recieve more shock when outdoors too and you should also allow for hills.

    I used to do 10 miles in the tread mill whenever i went to the gym but when i tried it on the road i found it much harder. What you have to take into account is that the tread mill is moving all the time so helps you keep going whereas the road is static (obvious i know but it makes a BIG difference) also the slight and constant variations in the height of the road is a klller!

    outdoors is a lot lesss ass there is llil bits of surface chancke little incines you can add inclines on the tredmill to make it more relistic

    you will probably be able to run 10 miles outdoors, but it will be much more difficult. on a treadmill you are running on a continuous flat surface whereas outside you’re running on concrete (which is hard on the shins) dirt, grass, and up and down hills whether they are large hills or barely noticible gradual inclines. it also depends on the weather; it will be easy to run on a warm (not too hot) day, but if it’s chilly or cold it will be hard on your lungs and you’ll get winded alot faster.

    you should be able to do it, but it will take some training to work up to 10 outdoor miles comfortably.

    No its not. Its similar, but definately not the same. On a treadmill, you are on a smooth, flat surface. You are in a climate controled area. and the elevation is constant. and the treadmill is build to absorb most of the shock of your step.

    When you run outside, terrain is uneven, with various elevations. You have to factor in heat/cold/humidity/dry weather. And the shock on your knees is greater than on a treadmill.

    app setting the treadmill to 0.5 instead of it completely flat is the same as running on concrete, its a bit easier on the treadmill as its moving with you and its smooth. 10 miles is a good distance, fair play to you

    Not if there are hills, if it is flat then I don’t see why not. Try it, tell us if it works.

    No, running on a treadmill is a different feel than road running, there are many more factors to consider. like road surface, inclines, declines, weather, temp etc etc.

  14. jazz said :

    well actually u running 10 miles in side is like running 5 miles but if u run 10 miles outside then its really 10 miles that’s a difference

  15. owness said :

    no it really isnt the same there are way more things to do out while ur running on the streets. There are things such as gravel which affects ur running a lot i incounter it all of the time and harder to breath outdoors too.

    Yes you should be able to cover ten miles of running. No, it is not the same. The road or wherever you run is not as even as a treadmill. The treadmill is also softer. This combination makes your legs get tired faster outside. Also an advantage of being on the treadmill is you can keep a constant pace. Outside you have to judge for yourself. Physically if you go as far as you can on a treadmill you should not be able to go that far outside. Psychologically however it is less boring to run outside. So if the weather is good you should run outside. If its not the treadmill is great as well. Running either way gives you benefit.

    Yes, you should be able to.

    You wont run at the same speed outside so your 10 miles willtake longer. It will be tougher outdoors – most people forget to put the treadmill on a 1% incline to counter for the wind resistance etc outside.

    Your pacing will be hard to find as well normally, go to quick at the start and get tired then recover and get back to your normal pace. You will also find the first mile quiet easy, its more interesting running outside and the first mile flies by

    I train on the treamill over winter but get bored by 30 minutes, however ina month or so Ill be off doing the odd half marathon after 4 mile runs in the gym – based on that you can run 10 miles outside

    No it is not. Since the treadmill moves away from you and the road does not, the motion is not quite the same. To simulate a road put the treadmill on at list a 2-3% incline. This will better simulate the “pushing off” motion you get on a real road. Better yet, try to run outside. It is a lot less boring and being outside helps beat the winter blahs.

    You may be able to run 10 miles outdoors, but it will be considerably more difficult. There are a number of factors that you’ll have to deal with while running outside that don’t affect you inside. The first, and most pertinent, is wind resistance. Since you’re not actually moving forwards on a treadmill, you have zero wind resistance pushing against you, whereas outside, the wind resistance generated by your forward movement will make your body have to work harder to run 10 miles outside than it would inside. Gradients, whether uphill or downhill, could also make it more difficult to run outside than inside, as could different surfaces (i.e. sand is much more difficult to run on than pavement.)

    10 miles = 10 miles.

    i was recently training for a marathon and used to run 10kms every morning on a treadmill. I used to put in a best effort i.e i was knackered by the time i finished and i used to complete in about 1 hr 08 mins. When i ran the marathon i completed the first 10 kms in 1 hr 05 mins at a cantar and completed the marathon in 5 hrs. This would suggest that you will run the 10miles on road a lot quicker than on a treadmill, providing the terrain is flat, surface even and weather is good…
