If you’re recovering from a running injury and have your doctor’s okay to start exercising again, the treadmill may be a good “transitional” tool for getting back into shape for road running.
In general, treadmill running is less stressful on the joints than road running is. In addition, a treadmill gives you many options for modifying your workout. For example, by using the machine’s steep incline and keeping your speed low, you can increase the intensity of your workout without significantly increasing the impact on your joints.
