Hello all. I just joined because I as so sick of sitting!

Did any of you convert an old used treadmill for your desk? I've found a bunch of cheap treadmills on Craig's List but I am concerned that they may not run slow enough to be used as a desk. Most increase speed at only .5 mile per hour increments. Since I've never worked on one, would this work as a desk? What speed/s do you typically work at? thanks for tips and suggestions. with a little guidance I will be one of you all soon!

That's the way to do it. I imagine that they will start at 1MPH and that will probably be OK, if not too slow. 1 - 2 MPH is typical.

Yes a used one should work...  I have walked at 2mph for a long time and recently slowed it down a bit to 1.8mph...  I added a fan to the motor on my treadmill to keep it cool, as the motor is working extra hard when it it going for an extended period of time for office walking.
