Hello Ann! TV, MP3 player or maybe if possible face your TM to look out a window. I can listen to audio books when I walk but it takes too much concentration for me to try to run and listen to audio books....not enough of a disrtration for me.

I used to look at the time on the TM a lot too. I covered that up and started paying more attention to the distance. My thought is, I can always do speed training to speed up but if I want to do a 5K I still have to be able to cover the distance.

I have my treadmill near the TV so I watch shows that I have recorded on my TiVO while I run. It also helps to have an mp3 player to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks. Other than those things if you just let your mind wander you will learn to think of other things. That takes some getting used to. I end up having an internal dialogue about random topics that end up in my brain. It took me a long time to do that without thinking about the time.

Hi,

I am very new to running. I have always walked but am trying to slowly advance to running. It is now too dark in the evenings for me to get outside to run/walk so I am starting on the treadmill. Any tips to make this a little less boring... I tend to focus on the time..sort of like a child...are we there yet? Any tips would be appreciated.

Ann
