Areeey...... Jogging is much more important than not jogging at all whether you do it on treadmill or jogging track. In fact I feel jogging on treadmill will be more beneficial as the regularity is there. You know how much you worked out and how many calories you burnt. In rainy and winter season you tend to skip jogging if doing it parks there by the regularity is lost. So keep going dude... You keep healthy and make others start with you.

I think jogging on tread mill is better since you can do it at home even in rainy season you can work out. It is more comfortable for ladies to do at home.

Hi I have been running like crazy taking care of my husband who just got a hip replacement on May 27. I ve had bouts of constipation. I take magnesium 400 mg. grape seed 200 mg. fish oil (frozen to avoid repeating) & I take Kiefer several times a week that I make. We also only drink raw milk. When I take the fish oil at time I do get loose stools but not that bad. I m on Percocet for knee pain but only a few a week. Over the last week I ve noticed a little mucously/blood in my stool. It ranges from red to a little darker. I know Keifer can cause a cleansing effect & even get rid of parasites but again I only take it a few times a week. I ve been tired but then I ve been doing too much taking care of my husband. I ve done stool cultures that I sent in which were ok but never had a colonoscopy. I did have a Sigmoidoscopy about 20 years ago.
