Why get a treadmill?
A treadmill's predictable surface is much easier to account for than unpredictable roads and trails. You're able to set your own exact difficulty levels and gradients, so you can rely on consistent training parameters rather than worry about which hills you ran up last week and how that impacts your training time.
The training belt is a softer surface than concrete roads too, so your joints take less of a pounding.
Many runners love the sense of their changing surroundings as they jog through their neighbourhoods, but if you want to tweak your workout more than the road will allow, or your area is plagued by bad weather, a treadmill is the ideal purchase.
