Before long, I started noticing subtle things: my heart rate didn’t get as high when we got into faster paces. I started recovering more quickly at my “easy pace” between intervals.

It only took a few steps on the Woodway to convince me that it was not your ordinary treadmill. It is nice to be able to do speed work in a controlled and predictable environment . . . I was impressed that the Woodway provides a much gentler impact than any other medium I have run on, including my preferred surface, dirt.  That seems particularly beneficial when ramping up the speed.
