Speaking of treadmills

Yesterday @Nils posted about using a non-motorized treadmill while typing and it got me wondering if there are folks here that use a treadmill while typing, or if you used to, and what your experience has been.

I’ve been using a desk treadmill for nine years. During a former job, I used the treadmill a few hours a day when working from home–typically while processing emails or coding. These days, I use the treadmill for cardio, but I still do a fair amount of typing at the same time. I walk at 3.7 mph and don’t have any trouble typing at that speed. I will say, however, when I would use the treadmill while working on more mentally taxing tasks (typically related to coding), I would sometimes slow down to 3 mph, and that seemed to help me focus better.
