I sure do. And I actually read, too. Not so much if I am running but definitely while walking.

I do when I'm staying in hotels - it's awesome...otherwise my regular gym does not have tvs with the treadmills so I just use my walkman

I do! My rule is that I can only watch that show or movie while I'm on working out (basically whatever I have on Netflix). Right now I am watching the first season of Witches of East End - I love the soapy goodness. I want to see another episode, so I know I have a 45 minute walk/jog to do so I can watch it!

If I'm just doing steady state workouts, then I watch stuff from Netflix. Currently, though, I'm using the programmed sessions, so I gotta stay focused, as I just never know what the next level will toss my way! emoticon

When I go to the gym and use the treadmill I watch TV, preferably the music video channel.

A good action/adventure show keeps me pedalling hard on my stationary bike. I have no trouble keeping up with the show AND getting in an intense workout!

sure, it's reading on the treadmill that's difficult.

I did watch tv when I walked on my treadmill at home. If you do, I would be careful (as you progress with your walking) to pay attention to your pace. Make sure you increase it as walking gets easier for you.



Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Does anyone actually do that?

Can you stay focused?

I don't have a treadmill and I don't want to waste money if this doesn't end up working.

It's just that, I would like to do something while catching up on shows/movies etc.

Better than not doing anything and gives it some variety.
