You can do it! I actually like running on a treadmill better than outside. I don't know if it's because I started out on a treadmill or what, but I don't do as well running outside....maybe I need to get out more? Good luck with your training!

If it's any consolation, I don't pay much attention to other treadmill runners at the gym. I'm too focused on my own activity, the music on my iPhone, the fact that my gym WOULDN'T PLAY THE BIGGEST LOSER FINALE!! Or I'm looking at the REALLY buff guys and girls, wondering if they take steroids.

That's awesome! I agree with Liz that most people are probably too focused on themselves or the nearest super-buff-hottie that they're probably not paying attention to you at the gym.

Also, your employer rocks. If I ever move to Indianapolis you have to hook me up with a nice HR job there, ok? thanks:)

Good job on trying new ways to do the work. Practice of different types and places will help achieve your goals. Good luck in Saturday's outing.

I am not a runner, but for a true workout I found that exercise bikes were better than real bikes. Now, riding a real bike is more fun, but like you I found it was hard to motivate myself, etc on the open road. Good luck with your training!

I have been doing the C25K the last five weeks, mostly at the gym because it's been pretty crappy and I only workout at night, so it's dark too. I have to say, I don't think anyone cares what anyone else is doing on the treadmills around them. Worry not!
