This post was originally part of Episode 691 released in February of 2019 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.

No matter how much I personally dislike running on the treadmill, I can’t deny that for some folks the treadmill is a necessary evil.

Several of the #DizRunners aren’t exactly fans of the treadmill, but due to the crazy weather this winter there are more than a few that have been logging some miles on the dreadmill.

For real though, my heart breaks for them!

That said, there are some ways you can make treadmill lemonade when you’re stuck running inside. Read more

QT: The Accuracy of Treadmill Data and Purchasing Considerations with Thessaly Nicolaysen


This is the third and final installment of the treadmill mini-series with Ms. Thessaly Nicolasen.

If you missed the first two chats, here’s what we discussed:

  • The first week we talked about why Thessaly loves the treadmill and how to fight the boredom factor.
  • In week two, we covered treadmill workouts and potential injury risks associated with the treadmill.

To bring it home, today we are talking about trusting the data on the treadmill and things to consider if you’re thinking about buying your own treadmill. Read more

QT: Choosing Workouts and Minimizing Injury Risk While Running on the Treadmill with Thessaly Nicolaysen


In this week’s Quick Tip, I’m once again joined by Ms. Thessaly Nicolaysen to talk about a subject near and dear to her heart: treadmill running.

Thessaly is joining us for the next few weeks of QT episodes to discuss treadmill running and offer some tips for those that may find themselves on the human hamster wheel at some point in the future. Read more

QT: Too Cold to Run? Stay In and Still Make Progress (Best Of-ish)


This post was originally part of Episode 514 from January 2018 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on a previous topic.

Thanks, in large part at least, to climate change there is some seriously cold weather crushing many parts of the country at the moment. (Or at least there was the first time this topic was discussed…)

It’s been bad enough in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere in the past week or so, that even many of my hardiest of cold weather running friends and clients have been forced into the treadmill on more than a few occasions.

And the soft as butter Floridians? Yeah, they are losing their minds!
