    Should i spread out my time on the treadmill throught out hte day or do it all at once. Say 1 mile in the morning and 1 in the afternoon or just go ahead and do 2 all at once? Im not really sure it would matter that much calorie wise but for metabolism and effects on your body i would think running on it 2 times a day would be better? Am i wrong?

    it was just an example haha im just askign if doing 2 runs a day is better than doing 1 of the same distance. Im pretty sure i could handle 2 miles but I would figure that 2 miles split would allow me to run each mile harder and at a faster pace. also buy an AV atleast freeloader :)

    There's nothin wrong with doin 2-a-days, whether or not it'll make any real diffrence i dont know, there was a study that said it would but it was by a marginal percentage.

    Just get it in one session. No point in two a days unless you're an elite runner who needs the mileage.

    Running on the treadmill is not better than running outside. You suck.

    It's the impression I got from the thread title since there was so question mark.
