Lora how do you read on the treadmill? There is no way I could do it. I am really cautious now on it because last year I was on it and I closed my eyes for a second while I was walking @ 4mph and one foot hit the solid part and the other kept going right through the wall. A BIG size 11 hole. I didn't fall or anything it was actually quite funny, but the only thing I do now is watch TV while walking. I just recently got the courage to speed things up again on it. With big feet I don't have to much wiggle room.

I've tried doing intervals on the treadmill, but my knees don't like it much. I do play with the incline a bit to change things up. I really enjoy reading and listening to music while I am on the mill, though.

Great article. I don't have a treadmill and I have only been on one many years ago, but I really enjoyed it and never thought it was boring. I hope that I will be able to afford one for home one day, so I won't have the chance to use bad weather as an excuse not to run.

Is there anything more boring than the treadmill? After endless hours staring at the same wall, anyone would start to wonder if thatís all there is to exercise. But it doesnít have to be that way. By shaking it up and loading your workout with variety, you can rediscover the fun of a good treadmill workout.

The first thing to remember is that any workout is and can be what you make it. The opportunity to go all out or to barely break a sweat is completely up to you. With that being said, even though the treadmill might be an uneventful and boring thought to most, you have the ability to make it fun and challenging. The following are several tips on how to create your own workout.

How do you change up your work out?

For me I like to kick the speed up to 6 and jog for a minute, then go back down and repeat this several times through out my workout. It really helps me pick up the pace.
