The treadmill has been purchased and set up. My husband and I chose a model that folds up in order to hide it away. It now resides in the closet in my children’s playroom with a bungee cord for reinforcement (because I am paranoid that way). Why start on a treadmill when the outdoors are way more economical and much more interesting? Well, I live in a mountain and prefer to start indoors until I am ready to tackle the hills of Hopatcong. One step at a time. I absolutely plan to eventually hit the great outdoors by the beginning of fall when the humidity in New Jersey lets up and is more predictable. Who am I kidding!? The weather in New Jersey is never all that predictable.

I have the same plan of action going on too! I plan on hitting the treadmill indoors, do some lunges outdoors if it’s not too hot and then tackle those hills in the fall.
I started my treadmill journey indoors too. My treadmill is set up in front of a TV set. I find I run much longer distances if I’m entertained as I run. When I run outdoors, I listen to music for the same reason. That works for me. 🙂
Congrats on the purchase. Happy running, my friend!
