My treadmill has arrived.

Today my treadmill arrived, two days early so very pleased, the instructions were sparse but we soldiered on.

After about two hours lots of huffing and puffing we had it assembled.

Now time to plug it in, but oh no we had not noticed it has a european two pin round plug.

We tried it in the shaver plug and that did not work then we plugged an international plug into the socket and then the two pin plug into that, It still does not work.

I have been back to the seller they said it should have had a three pin so they are arranging a replacement, so now got to wait another 5 days so dissapointed.

Not very efficient of the seller. Did you go to a well known name? Do these take up a lot of room.

Hard work putting it together you need someone strong to do it.

I dont think I could find the room, or even a bike. With ME, it could be a five minute wonder. I do use a selection of exercise dvds, alternating them. Even that requires room and also dedication, Details of anyone interested. Someone put a clip of Mr.Motivator a week or

How annoying, I hate that, you get your mind set on something and really look forward to it then, bam. Fingers crossed it be with you swn x

Oh Polly, what a disappointment fro you. Hope your new one arrives quickly and with no problems.

Perhaps we could motivate each other (I need this!!!) and have a blog on how many minutes we have done each day?

My hubby puts things together and really struggles - - then decides to read the instructions.

Hope you're soon treadmilling Polly.
