If your goal is to run a marathon, head to the great outdoors. If you're after a light jog, switch on your running machine, says Steve Manning, podiatrist and Queensland president of Sports Medicine Australia. "Running on a treadmill is fine for those with knee or hip problems, or if you're overweight, as there's little weight-bearing on your joints," Manning says. "Running on the pavement uses a different type of muscle contraction, which a running machine can't emulate." As a running-machine surface is smooth, there is no change in your step or pace, which helps to increase your fitness levels.

"Although cushioned running machines may help reduce the shock impact on knees and joints, continual running at the same pace will increase your risk of osteoporosis," Manning says. Whichever option you choose, keep running. Scientists in California found that those who ran for 40 minutes a day lived longer and were healthier, both physically and mentally, than those who did no running at all.
