Reading Books

I get restless sitting down for long periods of time, but I love to read books. I love to read a good book while walking on the Treadmill. It’s fun, I get a great workout, all while being engrossed in a great story, and most of all I’m doing two things at the same time.

The Versatility of the Computer Desk over Treadmill also known as the C-DOT.

We’ve been using the ComputerDeskOverTreadmill for over a year now.  It does what it is suppose to do, but there are certain things about it that we find annoying.  I have proposed another concept which mounts the keyboard on a shelf (desk) that allows movement of the keyboard away from the treadmill control console.

This is to allow the user access to the treadmill control console when use of the keyboard is not necessary. This also allows the treadmill’s tread to be folded up to save space during cleaning and storage.

I’ve already completed the prototype and am now testing it.  I will get some photos and video to show you details of one neat setup.

I go on the ComputerDeskOverTreadmill sometimes over 2 or 3 hours if I am watching a really good movie that I am really engrossed in it. This is in addition to the  other things which take  additional time. I spend an hour or two answering or communicating e-mail. And as I wrote before I also spend time with the computer games.

I probably should tell you that my ComputerDeskOverTreadmill is associated with a specific computer. That is I have only one treadmill and other computers without treadmills.

This is the day of the after picture.  See the difference, it is a huge contrast between the old setup. The main reason why I got rid of my old TV, VCR, and DVD setup was that the conversion of Digital TV forced it’s hand upon me.  I had two converter boxes already and thus used up my coupons, and couldn’t get another coupon for a third TV. I went ahead with this idea in my head. I always had this idea to do this, but I wasn’t sure if this would work, and so I took the plunge, and it work a lot better than I  had expected.

The Computer Desk over Treadmill is just a desk to put the keyboard and mouse on top of it while one is walking on the treadmill. The LCD computer monitor is in front,  and the computer is on top of a gray bookcase. It’s a great way to exercise without thinking about it, and I walk and surf the web all at the same time.
