Treadmill Desk, Day 7

190 minutes. A little foot massage over the past few days has eliminated the foot pain I was feeling earlier, and actually may have helped on a larger scale. Or it may be the walking; I'm finding less stiffness in my tendons.

My lower back is much less stiff today. Yeah.

I think I'm capped out at 240 minutes a day on this current treadmill. Since it needs to rest--and things often distract during the time I'm off it--I'll be lucky to get all four hours in a day.

I may switch to the laptop. The "desk" is steady and if I'm on for 30 minutes and off for 30 minutes, it's probably going to be a lot less disruptive to just use the laptop for the whole time.

So far, so good. I'll start getting serious and posting some numbers, if anyone's interested.


  1. My dad was having a lot of foot pain, to the point he thought he was going to have to quit walking. But then he found and it really helped.

  2. Interesting.

    I seldom wear shoes.

    I'm pretty sure my foot pain is caused by an extremely sedentary period I went through. I figure my tendons shortened, as with people in comas.

    The walking seems to be helping a ton.


Grab an umbrella. Unleash hell. Your mileage may vary. Results not typical. If swelling continues past four hours, consult a physician.
