Let me start by saying how much I love having a treadmill in my basement. I love getting home from work, putting Katie down for a nap and then heading down to get in some exercise while she is asleep.
But I have a very hard time running on a treadmill. Like, gasping for breath, staring at the numbers thinking, "I've only gone a mile??" I am incapable of "zoning out" on the TV or a movie for more than 5 minutes. My eyes always wander back to display and I watch the numbers counting my mileage move in super-slow-motion. And I'm walking a LOT more often than I would on a normal run outdoors. A LOT more. It's quite ridiculous.
Any tips or advice, would be appreciated. I'm still getting some time in running, which is better than nothing, but MAN! It is so hard for me. Is it just going to take more time in until I'm used to it, or what?
