Wherever you can actually get it done!

That said, I personally prefer the great outdoors. I like having a destination, especially since then you have no choice halfway through the workout - you have to keep going, unlike on a treadmill where you can just turn it off!

If it gets really cold (under 10-15F, depending on wind), I'll suck it up and go to the gym for the treadmill, but generally I just bundle up.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

I prefer walking at the lake. But, until it cools off and the snakes are gone for the year, it's mall walking for me!
