Indeed Wilkie - one of the benefits of democracy is choice, everyone can make a choice, take the risk and accept the consequences.

How about 'essential part of your marathon training' is to be mentally able to run without aids?

Outside running to Treadmill

Posted: Today at 12:05

My experience is that running on a treadmill is dire and boring, and I can't wait to get off it.

It's also really easy to get off it, so I tend to find a reason to!

I can run faster on a tready, but that's probably part of wanting to stop.  

Not much help, but something of an explanation.
