I don't find long treadmill runs to be any more boring than than any long run unless it's in an incredible natural setting with great trails. If it's in the gym, where I can watch TV and people watch, it gives me plenty to look at and think about. Plus I have a simple brain that requires little stumulation.

Wow!!! I'm impressed!!! When I run long on the TM I have to play all kinds of mind games and change the speed and inclines frequently or I want to poke my eyes out!! That is except for when a group from Dixie State (I think football players) shows up and start lifting with their occasional dance moves (serious, they must all be listening to the same music on their beats because it seems synchronized and then they start laughing). Now those TM runs are money!!! :-) Seriously though, nicely done!!!
