Running on a treadmill can be a tedious affair. The tedium can be even more acute for trail runners who are accustomed to enjoying the sensory stimulation of running in nature. I usually listen to audiobooks if I have to do any treadmill running, but I recently found another alternative.
There are a number of channels on YouTube with videos of people running trails, so you can do your run on a treadmill and watch a first-person view of a beautiful trail run.
I’ve included a few below, but just search for “virtual trail run” and you’ll find plenty more.
Do you have any favourite videos for treadmill running? Post them in the comments. If you don’t use videos, how do you keep your treadmill workouts interesting?
