  1. Hi Allie, great idea! Are you able to adjust the height of the laptop platform so you can get proper angle for your hands and wrists?

  2. How cool! I know several people who have built their own desks to attach to the treadmill. But this looks fantastic. I'm impressed!

  3. I'm totally jealous. I get seasick looking at a screen when I'm walking!

    Instead I try to make my treadmill time a sort of meditation...unplugging and all that. While it's an okay substitute, I wish I could work :)

  4. Christine, there are models which have electric adjustments--good if more than one person will be using the desk--but this one adjusts manually. That was important for someone as tall as I am!

  5. Totally want! :)

    I just might have to treat myself for my birthday.

  6. Love it! Go Allie! :)

    I have homemade treadmill desk and try to work in some time on it throughout the day.

    When I first got mine set up, I overdid it and injured the top of my foot. Yes, that's right: top, not bottom. I'm not sure how this happened. shrug...

    I'd gotten way past the sore quads, knees, and making sure I had good cushion for the bottom of my feet, and was well into my 2nd month of walking.

    The only thing I can figure is that it was a pressure point right at that spot on my walking shoes.

    Love it! Keep it up! But listen to your feet. Seriously. :)

  7. My daughter has been asking for one of those. I'm impressed that you can type and walk. The closest I come is reading on the elliptical. My doggie would be devastated otherwise. :)

  8. Wonderful, Allie. I'll have to think about how I can do that.

  9. I'm envious...as I sit at my desk and don't get any exercise! LOL!

    Really fantastic, Allie. Good for you.

    Maybe I need to buy a treadmill. Hmmmm...

  10. So cool! I've heard of writers doing this before. Definitely beats being stuck in a chair all day.

  11. So, is your word count each day the same? How long did it take you to adjust? What an awesome idea.

  12. I"m so jealous! I know I'm not supposed to be but I am. LOL Not the nasty, malicious type jealous, the I am going to figure out a way to get one of those type of jealous!
    However, I might find I'm like Sherri and might get seasick. I know I always feel funny when I come off a treadmill. hmmmm, I'll have dot give it some thought.

  13. Pamela--my word count has gone UP! Primarily because it was getting hard for me sit for long periods, but if have also found the walking to be mentally and physically energizing.

  14. How wonderful you can do this!!
    But like Sherri, I'd get really seasick....I can't even glance down in my handbag for something while traveling in the car (if my husband is driving). *sigh*

  15. Love this, Allie! I'm not sure I could type and walk at the same time. I broke a wrist just out walking with my husband. But I do like to stand at my kitchen island or counter and work at times. :)

  16. I work out regularly at Curves and enjoy making my treks around the circuit. Recently I concerted a wire mesh shelf I had into an inexpensive standing desk, so I don't spend as many hours a day sitting.
