Treadmill vs Outdoor Running: Which is Better For You?

Treadmill VS Outdoor Running: Which is Better?

 

How Effective is Treadmill Running Compared to Running Outside?

Running terrain makes all the difference in training. Running on the treadmill is easier than running outdoors, for a variety of reasons. One reason is that the treadmill belt assists leg turnover, making it easier to run faster. So most runners find that their pace on the treadmill doesn’t correlate to their road pace.

Also, some of the soft tissue conditioning or “hardening” that occurs with road running does not occur with treadmill running because the plate or base on the treadmill “gives” more than road surfaces. And, obviously there are no weather conditions to deal with when running indoors.

Are You Cheating Yourself by Choosing the Treadmill? What’s Better: the Treadmill or the Open Road?

When it comes to running (and walking), you have two types of people: those who adore the outdoors and those who would rather have their try at the treadmill. I’ve heard countless reasons from each type of runner on exactly why they choose to run indoors or out, but for the newbie runner, it can be confusing. Which is better? Is there really a big difference between the treadmill and the sidewalk? Which offers a higher calorie burn? What are the pros and cons of each option?

Biomechanics Expert Debunks Treadmill-Running Myths

Many commonly held beliefs about treadmills fail scientific scrutiny.

“People have a bias against treadmill running–that real runners don’t do it, or that it changes your leg movements. It’s all garbage. We found some minor changes, but they weren’t the ones people expected, and they don’t affect anyone’s running biomechanics.”

Is it better to run outside or on a treadmill?

It’s not something I’ve really thought much about before, possibly because I’m not that crazy about running, but it’s certainly a topic that divides running enthusiasts. So what are the arguments, for and against?

For me outdoor running has clear advantages. It’s far more varied and I have yet to convince my dog that watching me on a treadmill is as much fun as running through the fields. But the best advice, especially if you’re starting out, is to pick the kind of running that you enjoy and which you’re likely to stick to. If that means heading to the nearest treadmill just remember to vary the speed and the incline.

The Fallacy of the Network Greenfield Versus Brownfield Conundrum

I was a panelist at the ONUG conference in New York, where we discussed the impact of automation and machine learning on IT jobs. It was a great conversation, which I enjoyed thoroughly. The debate of greenfield versus brownfield came up a few times in the conversation, and I remember jumping in at one point and clarifying that from a customer perspective, there was no “brownfield” versus “greenfield.”

Customers almost never “upgrade” brownfield environments; That would be akin to upgrading components or adding a new engine to a 10-year old car that doesn’t meet any of the performance, emissions, or safety standards that are readily available when one purchases a new car. And customers rarely deploy pure greenfield environments. Their upgrade processes are constrained by the need to support legacy technologies in support of their business that require them to keep the lights on, and prevents them from performing forklift upgrades of their entire environment. And even if they were able to do so, such an approach can carry unreasonable cost and risks of disrupting the business if the upgrade doesn’t go smoothly.

Instead, what I’ve seen customers do far more often is deploy what we like to call “green patches”. That is, they upgrade their infrastructure one incremental step at a time. This incremental new step could be a new rack or, often a new POD. This new green patch is based on the latest thinking in terms of architecture, and incorporates the guiding principles needed to meet the ever evolving requirements of the business.

This is more true today than ever before. Because of the urgent need to embrace the digital transformation of their business, enterprises are embarking on an accelerated schedule to upgrade their infrastructure. The guiding principles that CIOs leverage their new green patches need to set the foundation for log scale improvements in how compute and network infrastructures are built and operated, that is, reduction of capital and operational costs, while increasing capacity and reducing risk in their platforms. These guiding principles are as follows:

  • Simplicity of operations through turn-key automation of the entire lifecycle of their network services, delivering on autonomous infrastructure operations freed from the inefficiencies of manual redundant configuration and troubleshooting tasks.
  • Free yourself from your hardware: There are plenty of hardware options on the market, from established vendors, to open source offerings. Customers should have the ability to deploy the highest capacity that’s the most cost effective for their needs, and they need to do that seamlessly without disrupting their operational model.
  • Ability to scale to meet the needs of the business. This is accomplished through proper scale out architectures, and through operational models that enable the ability to grow infrastructure or replace devices to newer technology of larger capacity seamlessly.

Our customers choose Apstra for their data center green patches because we uniquely deliver on those three guiding principles, enabling them to achieve log scale efficiencies in the costs of building and operating their new incremental infrastructure deployment, especially when compared to how they built and operate their brownfield environments. Our customers choose Apstra because they understand the 

exorbitant opportunity costs of doing nothing; high rate of outages and lack of agility, both of which amount to a basic inability to compete.

They believe that Apstra is the right choice because they appreciate the deep technological innovations that we have incorporated in AOS, which made these guiding principles a reality: our distributed operating system approach which provides a foundation for scale, extensibility, and reliability; our turn-key

intent-based approach provides unprecedented simplicity through powerful automation of the entire lifecycle of their data center network services; our disaggregated approach allows them to treat hardware as commodity; the systematic leveraging of open APIs and standards, which gives them control over their destiny; and last but not least, our

graph-based representations,

intent-based analytics, and continuous validation provides them full confidence that their infrastructure is indeed operating as intended.

Don’t waste your time arguing the two sides of the greenfield versus brownfield conundrum. And don’t fall behind from your inability to build the infrastructure that’s required for your business. Upgrade your infrastructure using a green patch approach instead, setting yourself on the right path for log scale efficiency improvements required by your digital transformation initiative.
