    i think its preference. i get bored running down the street, on the tredmill i have the radio and TV to entertain me while i am exercising. there are too many obstacles on the street for me too, i think the tredmill is better on the legs as well, less shinsplints and things of that nature. JMO

    i find eliptical machines are best for your joints and give a similar workout in comparison to running. I prefer treadmils the best because you can also change the angle of the treadmill to increase your workout

    Run sprints. Nothing gives you more wind than running sprints. As a fighter, I realized that running sprints, (uphill or stairs) two to three times a week gets you in better shape than if you ran 5 miles a day. I might not be able to help on AAS b/c I'm new...and...well don't know a **** thing about them, BUT I can help you on that, lol! Sprint uphill on a 50 75ft incline, or sprint stairs, ala, Rocky. You will have more endurance, and more explosive power.

    Oh, it is best to run in the morning, when you first wake up. Your metabolism is highest then.

    Why run when you can walk on the treadmill. I have an MP3 player with all the cardio tracks I like that I walk to the beat of. I walk for 50 mins three times a week with my HR at 75%, with the music the time flys buy. I think running sucks it is way to hard on your joints. No reason you cant do the same thing on the street as well.

    Unless you're running for cardiovascular fitness, I'd say use an eliptical or walk like the person above said. If your intention is to burn fat, the intensity of running will not benefit you. You want your heart rate at 65-75% max...so 200-age*(.75)= target fatloss heart rate.

    It is best to run in the am, but not because your metabolism is highest then. Its best to run then as it will raise your metabolism for the day. ALso, your glycogen levels are at their lowest when you wake up so you will benefit more of the fat loss for energy conversion as long as you don't eat first.
