As many of you know if you follow me on Twitter, I have gotten to the point where I do not want to just sit and watch TV because I feel like it could be time to spend at the gym or burning calories. I always try to do something like cook supper or fix lunch for the next day or laundry...the list goes on and on. Well since my wonderful cousin has let me use her treadmill til she moves into her house I have started walking on the treadmill at night while I'm watching TV. I walk at a regular stroll pace, not too fast or too slow and I will play with the incline, but never much over 3-4.
Well the reason I tell you all this is because, last night I outlasted the treadmill. I really like Thursday night TV and my workout class is over by 5 on Thursday so I have free time in the afternoons on Thursday. I walked for 100 minutes, actually 99:59. The machine just cut off. I didn't know it would do this. Usually I have to get off to use the restroom or take a phone call but last night I answered the phone from the machine so I never really had to get off and stop the time.
Let me just tell you this...even if you are not walking fast, when that belt stops moving and you keep up the same pace it hurts when you walk straight into the control panel of the machine. I'm not bruised today but I was really concerned that I would be after the collision that happened last night.
Just thought you all would enjoy.
