In the last 6 days, I have had one vigorous 30 minute walk and THREE 45 minute runs that I would not have had if I did not have this new treadmill! It is pleasurable enough, and I'm enjoying trying some of the challenging "Workouts" that are programmed into it. On Saturday, I did the "Interval" style workout, and ran for my life on the fast bursts! The treadmill forces you to stay going fast.

Even though it was pretty this weekend, it was awfully windy, and I had such a backlog of housework due to the weeks of long workdays that I mentally needed to knock [part] of that cleaning out. With the treadmill, I knew the option to run later, when it was dark, was there.

Tonight, it was "hills" and what a workout! While I was running, my 8 year old daughter--who'd had an active weekend hiking with her dad--got her required reading done and logged, took a shower and I was done in time (more or less) to help her get the rest of the way squared away for bed.

A whole new world is open to me with this thing! I'm going to run the tread out of this treadmill for the next year, because this is the time... warranty. Make it do its job!
