Dear Fellow Biomechanicist:

Where do I get a better workout and why; running on the road or at the gym
on a treadmill? Assume I run the same distance, at the same average
velocity. Also assume that the incline on the treadmill is zero and that
there is no net altitude change on the outside run. Finally, ignore wind
resistance.

Thanks for any replys. I will post a summary in a few days.
