WYR walk on a treadmill or outside on a paved path?

I like it better outside. When I walk...the treadmill kills my knees.

  • I prefer walking outside because I like to actually get somewhere when I'm walking lol but I like the fact that I can watch TV and walk on a treadmill lol! It is harder on my knees too though.

  • Way love the outside than the treadmill. Its horrible now with all the snow and freezing temps in Ct, I hate it. I need to run outside so bad :(

  • Usually treadmill, but it depends on the weather and how much time I have. I can get in 20 minutes on the treadmill while my daughter paints or colors. For outside, I need my husband to be home or her to be at school and the weather needs to be nice, but I'd rather if I can.

  • Definitely outside, but since it's been cold, I've been using the treadmill at the gym lately. Funny though, the treadmill at home, I couldn't stand to use (and can't now since our dog chewed the cord to it).
