Hooray for the Treadmill!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

A couple years ago, my husband and I bought a treadmill. I have to admit that in the summers when the weather is good, it gathers dust.

In the wintertime, it's another story altogether. We both use it almost every day. I used to love running outside in the bitter cold in the winter, but my asthma for the past few winters has made aerobic exercise in the cold very difficult. Thank goodness for the treadmill.

I admit it can be boring, but we each usually put our favorite show on Netflix instant streaming and just Do It!

Hooray! emoticon emoticon

    If we had more space in our tiny house I'd totally get a treadmill! But we don't, so that's why I joined a gym! :)

    No, thank you. I'll stay with the outdoor activities, in spite of the weather.

    You know, in the past, I was judgmental about treadmills. This winter, on the weekends I'm going out of my way to make sure I get in some treadmill time and I'm enjoying it.

Like you, I sometimes get the cold air exercise induced asthma. There's a place for many different types of fitness protocols!

Keep running! emoticon

    I am such a fan of Netflix and love the independent and foreign films. I don't watch TV, but just discovered
Downton Abbey. BTW, after research-
ing the Sensationail, I've decided to
stick to what I'm currently doing.
I like to change colors a lot, plus
it sounds like a lot of work to pry
them off. I don't want to spend any
time on anything. (smiling) But really do appreciate
knowing about it in case I give it a try in the future. Plus, you don't get a lot of product for the price.

    Treadmills rock! I use mine more in the summer when it is too hot and humid outside! With the AC on, of course!
