Trying to do 10 minute "bursts" of exercise. Too hot to exercise outside but inside exercise is sooooo boring. So I'm trying 10 min segments to get it done without losing my mind. Hopefully this strategy will get me on my treadmill each day, instead of avoiding it since I can't stand the boredom of it. I can do anything for 10 minutes at a time right?

Try reading on your treadmill. I have an ebook that i strap to my stationary bike. Sometimes i go over my time limit to finish a chapter.

That's an excellent idea. Do you have a T.V. in the same room as your treadmill? That helps a lot, too.

Thanks for the comments. I have tried reading and I just dont get my speed up enough when I read that I really feel like I have worked out. Music did work for awhile until I used it everyday and now it doesnt do it for me anymore.

TV helps but I have trouble hearing it over the treadmill. I have recently started bringing in my iPad and using the Netflix app on it and turning on the closed captioning so I dont miss dialogue while I work out. That seems to be working for now. Im watching 24 while I exercise and it is kind of addicting. Smile

That was a nice ideas..Reading can be hard while running because you’re so shaky, but audiobooks are great to listen to if you want to get lost in your favorite book while running. Goodluck!
