Running is one of the best and easiest exercises. It helps strengthen bones, strengthen muscles, help maintain weight and improve cardiovascular health. Running does not require any fancy equipment, so it is a favorite sport of many people. But for many years, the debate about whether you should run on the spot, on a treadmill, or outdoors has been a major threat. Well, running in some places may not be completely safe for everyone. Let's dig deeper to understand…


Joint pain

Most of the time, field running is done at home. When exercising on a hard surface such as granite or marble, the reaction force generated by the ground is small, which helps strengthen bones. Therefore, running on the ground may not be conducive to absorbing the reaction force of the ground, thereby causing a greater impact on the joints, resulting in pain and discomfort.

Increased stress on muscles

Running in place for a long time will put pressure on the muscles. After running in place, you may feel pain in your hips, thigh muscles, calves, and ankles.


Burning calories

Due to the wind resistance outside, running outside can help you burn more calories. So in terms of burning extra calories, running on the spot may not be as effective.


Perceived exertion

Whether you are running outdoors or indoors, it is important to maintain the same level of effort. The effort you put in is estimated by the perceived exertion, which means how difficult you think an activity is, regardless of how your body responds to the activity. Running in a place is not as difficult as running outdoors, especially on cold or rainy days.

?Precautions to take while running on the spot

Here are some tips to avoid injury while running in place:

  • Use the correct form and start slowly. If you have any injuries, don't run.

  • Warming up before running can improve blood flow to the muscles and reduce stiffness, which can reduce the risk of injury.

  • Wear sturdy, comfortable shoes that provide good support and a cushioned heel to absorb shock. Wear loose, breathable clothing so you have room to move.
