Low Impact Running Ideas

Tired of running on tarmac? some low impact running ideas are swimming, running on treadmill, running under water and another unusual idea is using a run bike.

I checked run Bike website and I could not understand how this thing works? If you look at the guys feet, it seems he is on air?

From Run Bike Website:-

The RunBike was developed to enable more people to run more miles for more years in their lives. The basis of the objective lies in two accepted realities. The first is the myriad aches, pains, and injuries associated with conventional habitual running. The second is the burgeoning body of research pointing to the medical benefits of exercise.

“How had mankind missed this application of the wheel for so long?”

The guy behind it says, it is good for running, jogging, walking and highly recommended to those who want to run but suffer from joint, knee and weight problem.
