1/7/2010--Seattle, WA, USA..Tina Podlodowski, 49, reading a novel on her Amazon Kindle while on the treadmill in her home in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle...Most people know  that listening to music with a good beat can help enhance a workout, and when  it comes to other ways to occupy the mind -- like watching television,  listening to a podcast or talking to a friend --  there can be benefits too. Trainers say  just about anything that gets someone to exercise is beneficial. To go beyond  recreational athletics however, you may need to put away the distractions and  develop your own internal methods of dealing with the fatigue, discomfort or  boredom of your exercise regimen...©2010 Stuart Isett.
