Road Running vs Treadmill Running

“RUNNING BATTLE Runners have long debated the difference between training on a treadmill and training on solid ground. “Belt turnover” is commonly cited as a factor that helps to move your foot backwards and there by makes running on a treadmill easier than running on the road.
