I don't have a treadmill but wish I did. And if I did I would put it in front of a TV and use walking videos (if they have them where you can walk with scenery) or I'd put on earphones and "read" a book or listen to a radio station or music. I have a community park that's a mile or so away from me and when the weather's been good (which hasn't been much this last month) I will walk there - no music - no nothing - just enjoy the scenery and listening to the sounds of nature. I will probably also start walking my neighborhood and see what everyone is doing in their front yards for gardening - maybe stop and make new friends (hummmm - will have to think about that one - lol)
Good luck !!!

It is no secret that I don't love my treadmill - but I am learning to use it. I love to walk outside and in the warmer months we go on day-long hikes - so I'm not lazy to walk - I just hate the scenery (staring at a white wall the entire time).
Now - I saw on someone's blog that you can track miles walked and then go on a virtual walk. I really love this idea - and see it as a way to possibly motivate myself. Just wondering - does anyone else do that here? How do you do it? How do you decide where to start walking - and where you end up? Just really curious about this - I might be able to start supercharging my treadmill workouts!
