When it comes to running sometimes the outdoor world just isn’t an option for us, whether due to preference (it’s bloomin’ cold out there), time sensitivity, young children or something else entirely, but the indoor world of running can be wonderful place. Just because you’re indoors doesn’t mean you have to run alone.
Zwift is a great way to run as part of a community while on your treadmill. All you need is a Zwift Runpod (retailing at £37.99), that you connect to your mobile, tv, or ipad via Bluetooth, or a Bluetooth enabled treadmill, and you’re ready to go. It’ll give you access to routes, races, workouts and community running that will power you through. All these features help you to improve your running and push your workouts as you take part in free events and races. The Zwift app is free to download on iOS and Google Play, so you can run for free without subscribing.
Obviously a key component for indoor running is owning a treadmill. There are different types of treadmills on the market designed for your various needs. If you have quite a tight space you might want to consider a fold away treadmill so it’s easy to tuck away when not in use. Similarly, treadmills come in different sizes both with their footprint and height, which you’d need to consider in your space. If varying speeds and programs is something you want from your treadmill then, again, it’s important to review the technological capabilities they have. At Women’s Running we’d recommend using JTX Fitness as they have a wide range of treadmills available to suit your various needs. You can browse the range here.
So, now all you’ve got left to do is knock out those miles!
