I don't love them but I've found their use. So has trail runner magazine apparently. A friend who is into ironman and lived in Sudbury reframed treadmills for me years ago. Basically he just said If i hate it that's a mental challenge to overcome and use in racing later. Paraphrasing a bit there but it was helpful. Biggest issue i have with them now is the temperature in the room when I do end up using them.

Good article - thanks! I've learned to hate the treadmill less by listening to podcasts instead of watching TV. It turns out I feel kind of seasick after awhile if I watch TV from a treadmill so it's better now that my eyes aren't involved. Also, I'm more interested in podcasts than in most TV shows. I don't know if I could run longer than an hour but it's good for days like today when I would have to drive somewhere to run outside - the opposite of most people.
