The first four or five times we ran indoors, I ended up on the older treadmills, which seemed to work fine. While I don't have a huge amount of treadmill experience, I quickly got comfortable with the routine, figured out what paces were comfortable to start out with and how much I could expect to accelerate during the run, and so on.
