    I kinda wish I had the room for a treadmill at home, sometimes I just want to watch a film or the footie and not just be sitting on my arse . It'll never replace proper running (far too easy) but it'd help me log more miles.

    I play a ton of guitar these days! I have a pack & play next to my desk, and shred to my son for about half an hour several nights a week.

    It's been a trip - all of my muscle memory and go-to patterns/scales have always been evil sounding "metal" stuff. Since I didn't want my son growing up and turning into Abbath, I've been woodshedding all sorts of major/happy sounding shit to play for him. It's so outside of my usual style that it's been a lot of fun, and he gets a kick out of it.

    Shoulda went with the elliptical they offer. No Treadmill is healthy for your knees. Nowhere near as healthy as running outside. If they haven't shipped yet I would ask them to change the order to their elliptical if I were you.

    Can't stand running on treadmills. The vast majority of people just use them for short bursts anyways, which they work fine for, 5 minutes twice a week to supplement your trendy weight lifting routine, but using them for endurance cardio sucks.

    If you're serious about treadmilling though, get Running Moccasins. No joke. The minimalist slip on kind of thing. Teva used to make a set that rules they discontinued. The kind of shoes that work well for running outdoors don't work as well on a treadmill IMO. You want thin gum soles.

    I've used Mizunos for running outdoors forever, but I fucking hate them on treadmills. Tight in the heel is terrible treadmilling. You don't want something with an outdoor running sole. You want a super thin flat sole and super loose and lightweight for treadmills.

    Normally I hate Teva because they are like, the ultimate yuppie brand, but Sierra Trading Post was blowing these out for $15 6-7 years ago and they are the greatest shoes for treadmills. I believe they are called the "Mush Frio Lace Canvas".

    Those are actually recommended for people with stuff like knee problems as the curvature apparently helps with reducing heel striking running form. Who knows if its just bullshit, what I do know is that they are crazy the first time you get on them as you use your own balance to set pace so generally end out accidentally in an all out sprint <img src="https://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/images/smilies/laugh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh" class="inlineimg" />

    I've logged several hundred miles on the treadmill over the last few years, and so has my wife. We both like them, and have no issues with knees. (Well, I have knee issues, but they're because I do tons of DH mountain biking which is another story altogether, lol).

    I can't stand ellipticals. They always make my tendons feel like shit afterwards and I don't get nearly as good a workout as I do on a treadmill.

    OT but check out that Owane album I posted a few months back ('Yeah Whatever', the whole thing is up on Youtube). Even if you're not super into it, 99% of it is are tasty major scale licks that are good for noodling, some challenging but nothing stupid and they're 'happy'. Some dirty 'd' in there but 'Shape of Colour' by Intervals is another one that's pretty much all major scale licks ('Sweet Tooth' is a good example).
