TWOsday ~ exercise tips

My friend Donna on the treadmill recently
This seems like a good day for a new focus, using these tips for my exercise routine:
  1. "Embrace the unfamiliar" is #13 on an exercise list I discovered.
  2. "Learn something new" is the goal for the 11th day of happiness.

It's time for me to start using the treadmill in our fitness center.  My idea of walking has always been out in the neighborhood, but it's been bitter cold in St. Louis lately.  It has warmed up to above freezing, but that's still cold.  I guess I'll just need to get used to the idea of walking without going anywhere, with better health as my destination.

I love my treadmill and used to walk about 4 miles on it every day. I don't use it much anymore since I get a lot of steps at work. Still, I've been thinking I should walk on it to reach 10,000 steps a day.

With all the technology, can you find something interesting to do while on the treadmill? Listen to, or even watch, a show on your phone or tablet?

I'm hoping to get out for a walk today since it's supposed to be relatively warm. Even warmer tomorrow, but it looks like it may rain all day. Then we'll be back to cold!

So I went downstairs to exercise today, and the treadmill has a sign saying "Out of Order." I asked Melissa about it, and she says a part has been ordered and it should be usable within a couple of days.

Joy, I only just now discovered your comment. I can always meditate on the treadmill, so I'll do okay. I'm glad to see you feel well enough to be out and about today.

Treadmills do seem silly when the outdoors is so available, but mid-winter they are a great idea!
