Secrets of Success

Distract Yourself




When I run on the treadmill, if I spend too much time watching the clock I tend to get bored and stop sooner. I distract myself by finding a tv show I like that's longer than the time I want to run. I get into the show and end up running more because I want to see how it turns out.

More Information:

I've started recording shows on the PVR so there's always something available that I like.
