Treadmill vs outdoors

    I have started my 24week program and I was wondering:

    The hills around here are not very high, there’ s the occasional steep slope but is mostly up and down.

    I found out that on a typical 1hr run at MAF on the trail I can get around 200-300m of vertical and on the same run on 15% treadmill I get 900m.
    Does this mean I should prioritize doing these runs/hikes(and the long weekly one) on the treadmill just for the more vertical or running out on rough terrain has other benefits as well?
    Maybe a mix is better?

    Include the steep treadmill as much as you tolerate. The sustained grade hikes on it will be beneficial of your goal is mountaineering. A mix will help keep you sane though.
