The treadmill


Tuesday, February 05, 2013

So I was sooo excited to get a treadmill at my house and I have discovered I hate it. I thought I would love being able to watch TV while I work out but that has not been the case. I don't know if it is the treadmill or just me. I prefer to run outside, it just feels different on the treadmill..... weird I know..

But I can say I am atleast getting on it and walking while I watch my shows so I am not sitting there laid out on the couch not doing anything.

Thats just my thought for the day!

    There is just something so refreshing about the air and sun on a walk or run. But at least you've got the treadmill for days of bad weather or days you just can't get out of the house. I'm looking at an elliptical for the same reasons, so that if it's raining or too cold or I just can't get away, I can still pop in my headphones and pretend for a while. emoticon

    I don't like treadmills either... but then again, I don't like running at all. lol I prefer the bike or elliptical. a lot less stress on the joints too.

    Oh, no, I think you're right and running outside is SO MUCH BETTER. I really don't enjoy the treadmill....

    I love music so I just put in my ear buds and try to keep pace with the music. If I want to run fast I put in Metallica (old school), if I want to keep an upbeat pace but not running I listen to pop music depends on my mood. It is kind of an escape. Destination challenges also give you motivation. One year I said I would walk, run or bike my miles from my house to Disney World within a year. If we made it we would go. We made it and went on vacation there.

    I think that is my issue right now. I've been doing good going to the fitness center since September and getting on the treadmill. But the last few weeks I haven't. I want to be outside, but it's so cold in the mornings. I have no motivation to get on the treadmill anymore. emoticon
