Do you notice a difference? Is one easier than the other? Isn't two miles, two miles regardless?

I personally feel that treadmill jogging is much easier than outdoor jogging. With a smooth surface and a controlled environment, I just feel like I am flowing along. Boredom is a huge problem however if I am jogging on the treadmill. I don't usually put in that many miles on a treadmill each day.
