Ted Cowan replied to Dan's discussion Wow, I knew others were out there :)
"Hi Dan, Looking for a way to virtually walk that Appalachian Trail, the PCT, the CDT and any other trail I can find.  I sent my email to your group. Hoping to learn more. Thanks, ted cowan"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"So a change of plans from my last post. After my confidence treadmill began to falter I announced that I was going to dive deep into my pockets and buy the Tread, which I did. Upon doing so, I learned that my wife's company had declined her…"

"Hi All, Just wanted to say that after five months of hard use, and I mean hard, the motor on my Confidence treadmill is about toast. I could still squeeze out some more miles, and will; however, I've gone ahead and ordered The…"

"Just learned today that Facebook provides walk stations for each of their employees, and three meals a day (perhaps vegan!). I'm hoping some of the studios in LA pick up on this trend. "

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I'm interested in seeing how much punishment the Confidence will take. I opted for the cheaper model more out of interest to see how a walking station would work in my day. So far it's been fantastic!"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I have two treadmills. The Confidence and a high-end Livestrong T10. I set my Confidence for 2.0, and counted the steps for a minute. I then did the same for the Livestrong. When I compared the two, I walked and additional 2-3 steps per minute with…"

"If it starts smelling like burned rubber, then stop and send it back. Their customer service (at least Golf Pro Outlets) was easy to work with. "

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Just send it back. My first unit got hot and had an odor. The replacement unit is fine. I use it to walk 5 to seven miles daily."

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"No...but like Amy it works for me. Full on work intensity for 30 minutes followed by 5 minute break for stretching, then back at it. "

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"The treadmill stands 4 1/8 " from the floor. The treadmill is hard, meaning there's no cushioning. My return was easy. The replacement is showing none of the issues described with the earlier model."

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"This treadmill does a great job at around a 1 to 2 mph pace. I haven't tied to go much faster AND the speed calibration is slightly off, when compared with another high end treadmill that I use for running. My replacement should be here…"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Yes, the pomodoro technique definitely applies here, though I wasn't aware of this until you mentioned it. Yes, the chemical/rubbery smell is the burning smell I've mentioned. Initially, my unit gave off this smell immediately, not it…"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"In speaking to Austin (the sales rep at Golf Outlets), he's told me that the smell shouldn't be happening. It now seems to occur after my fourth mile...But the bigger issue is that the engine on my unit seems unfit to go more than two…"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I like the screen at eye level. I spent a lot of money to buy a platform that I can raise and lower. It's called the Kangaroo, and I've been quite pleased by it. Has a better aesthetic than using drywall across the bars of a regular…"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Wesley, When standing on the treadmill, you'll be about 5 inches off the ground. Also, after removing the bars, it's level. It's a cheap treadmill from China, so it may have a bug or two, but the customer support has been solid.…"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Here's an update on the Ergodesktop Kangaroo I am using for my standup desk. When I contacted the company they immediately mailed another support device the further bolster the unit. I am confident that this will solve the problem. If  you…"

About Me:
I'm a writer. Even though I swim 2 miles each day, I noticed while living in NYC last spring how much my hips, legs and feet ached just from walking Central Park. What was more alarming is that for several years (before I began writing) I use to take kids on 40 mile backpacking trips once a month with no problem!
