The workout is more intense than what I would do on my own, but it is entirely different from running. And I can tell when I hop on the treadmill that I'm not in great running shape. But.....more and more I have been wanting to run. Outside. Without the treadmill and being able to read. I really think much of running long distances is mental. And I am getting closer and closer to committing to really being an outdoor runner.
