    There are better alternatives but if your knees can handle it then run based on your assessment of aerobic capacity and increase it properly.

    I only do sprints and have no issues with either aerobic or anaerobic components.

    Run unpaved trails. They're easier on the knees and a better workout overall if there are hills involved.

    Would you want to improve your stamina or endurance? Each on each involves different types of running? Also, many different joint friendly alternatives to improve both your stamina and endurance.

    I run on a treadmill since its cold as balls outside, so to minimize joint damage, i run barefoot so I strike with the ball of my foot and also I put on a decent incline.

    So to decrease joint damage, you take off shoes and run downhill? How does this make any sense?

    Running barefoot might make things worse, or it might not, but I think he said incline, as in up hill.
