You eliminate wind resistance, which makes it easier, but you also have less oxygen because you are indoor (sic), which makes it harder.

How so?

I also wonder if the fact that the running surface is moving under you, possibly accounts for some greater efficiency?

From the point of physics it is not possible to say whether you are standing and the surface is moving or vice versa (isn’t the Earth moving ?).

Although it mimics land running more closely than any other activity, treadmill running is a marginally different biomechanical experience. “Treadmill running requires a slightly different combination of muscle movements,” says Pfitzinger.
