Outside is my favorite place to exercise! So far, icy weather has been my only deterrent, and we don't have much of that here usually. My daily walks help keep me sane and centered! I just layer clothes on cold weather. Report
I always felt that exercising (walking, running, biking) next to heavy traffic could not be good for your lungs. Report
thanks for the info Report
another great article Report
We used to run on the trail near our house and it started to affect my asthma {the new freeway was right next to our tract housing~built 11 years AFTER we moved in!}. So,we chose a different route,but it took MOVING AWAY from the state entirely and now in a our new state and relatively new home,my asthma is practically non-existent!! All the beautiful trees that line the pathway we take [in the park] are providing FRESH oxygen! YAY!! Report
I walk around the school or inside the school when the weather is too out or to cold Report
I don't like walking/running on busy roads because people drive crazy!! I prefer the parks/paths/trails/neighborhoods anyway. Report
Very interested article. Report
I think about the traffic but not the air. Thanks. Report
That's kind of difficult to do sometimes. Report
Good article. Report
Never thought about it. I walk to work along a busy road. Maybe I’ll get a mask to filter the fumes. Thanks Report
I can remember when I stopped taking my baby on the sidewalks in her umstroller because I thought her face was on the same level as the car fumes. Report
I just felt like pointing out that on the start page there was one article saying "Surprising Danger of Running Outdoors" and another saying "Treadmill vs. Road, which is better? Are you cheating yourself using a treadmill?" Maybe I should stay away from walking altogether! Just kidding, of course. I think it is a personal choice that a person has to decide based on what works best for them. I personally have a weird sun allergy, and can't really go outside in direct sunlight. On cloudy days, sure, I might go for a walk. But usually I stay at home on my treadmill. Report
I stick to the off-road trails and paths - fortunate that here we have lots of them. Report
