My goal is to FIND the treadmill to walk on it! I also have a huge German Sheppard that needs walking! emoticon

Hello, new to the team. I like to walk outside in the mornings, and walk on my treadmill in the evenings.

I use the treadmill if it's too cold outdoors, usually in the winter.

I use the treadmill a lot because I live in Mn and the weather is so unpredictable. But I also use my ellipitical and I love doing the Walk Away the pounds dvds. Whatever I can do in order to not go crazy with boredom in the winter. But I would rather walk outdoors.

I use the treadmill only when I can't walk outside because of heavy rain. (I don't have to worry about snow for another month or two)

I alternate between doing treadmill, walk away the pound dvds, ellipitical or running or walking outside. I prefer to walk/run outdoors but since I am limited on time and i need to get a workout in, I do my walking or running on the treadmill.

I do the treadmill only when I have to. Mainly for 20 minutes but I do interval inclines at a walk. I think it helps work the back hamstrings and butt. I prefer to walk outside in most weather since I live in the country.

I do walk on a treadmill when I have no other choice but it is too hard on my body to do it for very long so I tend to walk in 10-15 minute increments up to maybe 45 min max - the treadmills make me dizzy and the steady pace often leaves me aching, although I can walk for a couple of hours without feeling any after effects when I walk 'normally.'

Another factor for me is that my dogs want and need to be walked and obviously the treadmill doesn't help with that so I combine their needs with my needs and we usually walk outside at least twice a day. Still, it's great to have the treadmill as an alternative when the weather is yucky outside! Good luck!

When I walk on a Treadmill, I usually walk between 6 to 8 miles a day. On an indoor track, 4 to 6 miles a day. emoticon

As a rule I walk on a padded track,14 laps per mile very easy on the joints. I like using my own power, not the motor of a treadmill. I will once or twice a month walk on a treadmill as a change of pace for 30 min. No more
