Treadmill run training… Treadmill disasters!!! The fun training for marathons never stops!
I had the weirdest experience on the treadmill this afternoon… Like none other… To start the story, I was preparing for forecasted torrential downpours so I brought my gym stuff to head over directly from work, and be done with it. It was misting, overcast and foggy but no downpours by the time I was freeeeee…
I was only planning 5 miles so I figured I could withstand the treadmill for that short of a period. I hopped on, dialed it up to speed and started on my merry way. Was glad to see some skiing on the T.V’s for a change. The first issue happened about 5 minutes into the run, the treadmill malfunctioned. My mind was already physically not into the run and I should have thrown in the towel. I thought instead of playing around with the controls of the current treadmill, I jumped ship to the neighbour treadmill.
That’s when it all went to hell… I felt as though my equilibrium was out of whack, like I had no balance on the machine, and was going to tumble off the back at any moment. It was as though I was an acrobat in the circus throwing my hands up in the air in an attempting to regain my balance. My Mp3 player went flying off the machine a couple of times to add to the excitement (hit the cord with my arm) I have never been happier to have completed a run!
Hope you all have a great Friday!
