Exercise: Indoor Or Outdoor?

  1. I used to run quite a bit (I ran a marathon back in 2001), and running outside is always better than running on a treadmill. The treadmill is nice in allowing you to keep a constant speed and ideal weather conditions, but it is not very interesting or mentally engaging.

    And, of course, I did a cross-country bike ride. Yeah, I’d say I’m pretty firmly in the “outdoor” camp.

  2. While for most of my adult life, I’ve exercised outdoors — a lot of general distance running as well as training for marathons — a couple of months ago, I joined a gym again. (Yup, I’m masked up. Just in case you’re wondering.)

  3. Outdoor all the way. Biking when it’s above 50 degrees or so—but I can’t stand stationary bikes. Outside biking season I geocache when I can, or walk when it’s too cold, dark or snowy for anything else. Yes, even in 20 below. I hate gyms.
