    I read 4 chapters of Bible while walking for 3 km. in Gym
    I get a lot of teachings from Bible while on the treadmill.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    That's good. It's amazing how much you can get done if you commit the time to it.

    No but I usually listen to the Bible or a sermon on an mp3 player when I go on a walk. I got an mp3 CD of the KJV read by Alexander Scourby and put it onto a mp3 player.

    What chapters did you read?

    Hi @johnnywong, I don't read while I'm working out, but I do "listen" to the Bible or sermons/lectures when I do (and I keep a pad of paper and pen nearby to take note of the things that I'd like to review later).

    I can make it through the entire OT/NT in 3 months by listening to it for 45 minutes per day during my workouts. In fact, I never read 'through' the Bible anymore, because listening through it is so much more efficient (for me anyway). Whenever I try to read through it now, I always end up taking too much time studying it instead.

    I have the Bible on CD, but you can listen to it at a number of places online for free now, like here: BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 150 versions and 50 languages.: Audio

    I mainly read the Bible at breakfast. I can't start the day without a good breakfast, so I found I naturally read the Bible more if I always leave it on my dining room table. Of course, I also have spilled things on it... So it's not a foolproof plan! I wad forced to paint the edges gold with a paint marker because it was so obviously stained by a cup of hot chocolate I dropped on it...

    When I run, I actually do it in total silence usually. Music throws off the rhythm of my breathing I find. But running has been very hard for me to pick up, so I always start out with asking God to help me complete my goal. So far it's worked without fail and I've set many new personal records recently!

    I thin
    I think many of us go to Gym everyday.
    Some may be "forced " to see the TV provided by the Gym.
    I think it will be better to make it a habit to see the Bible at that time.
    On one side to train the physical bpody , the other side training the spirit.

    Usually I read 2 chapters from OT, 2 from NT.
    I divided the OT to 2 parts: one is the history , second is the rest;
    NT to 2 parts: one is the 4 Gospels all about direct teachings from Jesus, second is the Others.
    There are about 1200 chapters in the Bible. I can finish the bible within 1 year on the treadmill.

    If the TV's too loud, get an MP3 bible.
