Treadmills and Scrap Paper
Monday, August 09, 2010
I use a treadmill at home on a regular occasion, renting videos at the library and exercising to them. In previous summers, I have extended my walking distance and speed, but not this year. I broke my toe end of May and did exercise, but it was much slower and much shorter distances. Now that I am beginning to feel back up to par, (Not there yet though.) I wanted to once a week on the treadmill see how long I could walk. I have done 5ks, 10ks and a bit more in the past, so today I decided I would see if I could beat what I did the last time 90 minutes. Any idea what happened when I hit 100 minutes? *grumble* My treadmill went back to zero, and erased all my distance and calories spent information. I didn't know that would happen! I guess, the next time I will have to have some scrap paper and pen near the machine to write it down before I get to 100, as I would love to see if I can come closer to walking a half marathon. Or maybe I should just try running someday. Are all treadmills like this, or only the cheaper ones?
