Resorted to using the treadmill last Tuesday evening as I was desperate to run and frustrated by the dark winter evenings. I've done cross-trainers before, but hardly ever used a running machine. I was bored after 90 seconds. After 15 minutes, I was joined a few machines away by a lady I knew so we started to chat. And then I turned towards her. You know what happens next.
The carpet in that gym is REALLY rough and had taken off several layers of skin, which my knee was particularly attached to.
The good news is that my husband tells me no one can look at the CCTV footage unless there's a 'safeguarding issue'. But I do have plenty of friends who are very keen to watch it!
I'm running outside tomorrow and hoping to get up to 8k. Forecast is for heavy rain all day but it's got to be safer than that running machine!
