I have my treadmill set up in a bedroom and watch TV. Current shows that I have recorded, baseball games, Netflix, virtual treadmill walk/run on youtube. Anything to distract me. If I am watching a baseball game, then I am also listening to a audio book from my phone.

I have used treadmills and ellipticals that have virtual walks programmed into them. It was a nice change; I haven't used the YouTube videos. Generally, though, I watch TV if I am using the machines at the gym; my current gym doesn't have virtual ones.

I have used those and actually don't enjoy them. Prefer watching a TV show or listening to music. However, when I walk outside in the country I don't listen to music as I want to experience nature.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I hear ya! I was getting bored as well. Then, someone told me about videos on you tube. It's really neat. When you walk you can hear yourself walking. Like if you walk in the woods, you can hear the leaves crunch and stuff. If you try it let me know what you think.

I'll have to give this a try! There are lots of people who get bored on treadmill runs but I usually don't seem to mind. There are a couple of days though that it can get pretty boring. I'll try putting on one of these videos to see if that helps!

When and if anyone of you walk on the treadmill, do you use videos that make it look like you are really walking? I watch some on you tube and it's pretty neat. You can walk on the beach, the woods, city streets, etc. The beach is my favorite. The sound of the waves crashing is awesome!
