Fabulous has New Kit for a Treadmill Run!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿค”โค๏ธ

Hi Runners

My last run was on Saturday, but I packed my kit to run while I am away. I got home yesterday pumped up and excited as it was still light, getting my kit out, thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ.......happy days๐Ÿ˜!! And then what? Trainers โœ… ๐Ÿ˜ Top ๐Ÿ˜ โœ… ......dig.....dig....๐Ÿ’ญ, โ€œwhereโ€™s my leggingsโ€? ๐Ÿ˜ต.....yep!.....AWOL! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

So making light of my plight (we wonโ€™t call it stupidity! Thatโ€™s not nice! ๐Ÿ˜‚) I decide, well it looks like thereโ€™s no running until I get home on Friday. I go for dinner and let it go!

However this morning, I was thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ (I know...again! ๐Ÿ™„) I might be able to buy some later, but is it worth doing that? To cut a long story short, a couple of my VRBs had suggested running in undergarments! Yes.....you know who you are!! ๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ˜ And they were duly advised โ€˜Not a chance in Hโ€™! Besides, Iโ€™d be escorted off the Island!! ๐Ÿคบ๐Ÿคบ๐Ÿคบ๐Ÿ˜Š

I took a short trip into town at lunch time and browsing the sale rack, I find a pair of old school leggings. No price tag, but thought it would do the trick!! Guess what?........50p!! Weeeeeelll, now thatโ€™s a gremlin busting bargain and a half!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜ So, I know my run is on! I have a spa and gym where Iโ€™m staying this week ๐Ÿ˜, so I decide to go and take a look, face โ€œthe machineโ€ and see how it goes ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

I did W1R1 on the treadmill, but never been back since! It wasnโ€™t one of those virtual running screen ones like today, so this was different and kind of fun. I definitely prefer to be outdoors. I really didnโ€™t understand how to operate it either, so it was a flat 7.1 pace all of the way. There was no straight forward up and down buttons to vary the pace. That said, itโ€™s done!! I did 3k! Not so much buzz for me today, as I had to focus quite a bit, but Iโ€™m glad I got there and had another new adventure!! My 50p leggings made it possible and itโ€™s in the bag!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

Thanks Dexy!! Yep, I agree! Whatโ€™s there to lose. I spent 50p and if I didnโ€™t like it, I could stop at any time! But I didnโ€™t!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Nice!! โค๏ธ

Bargain! Still donโ€™t fancy running on a treadmill, but any port in a storm I guess.

Thanks Mike! I wasnโ€™t sure how it would go, but as it was on the doorstep, so to speak, I thought it was the ideal time to try it. I think I can cancel my gym membership now though. I much prefer the outdoors. Even if itโ€™s cold and dark, thereโ€™s nothing like running in the fresh air for me. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

I dunno who youโ€™re referring to!

Good job getting on the dreadmill.

For future reference you could ask at your hotel reception if thereโ€™s a nudist beach, then you could pack real light ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง 50p leggings look like a heavily discounted, (hanging on a packed sale rack, just not selling in the sale, because itโ€™s waiting for Fabulous to forget her running essentials, while sheโ€™s on her travels, ยฃ12, black good quality leggings, that a lot of ladies wear everyday! ๐Ÿ’ญPhew ๐Ÿค“. Not me though, never thought I had the legs for them ๐Ÿ˜…, but Iโ€™m changing my beliefs on that one these days! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

50p leggings! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… Thatโ€™s a bargain if ever I heard one!

How wonderful that you felt the need to source some though - if youโ€™re anything like me, in the past that would have been the perfect excuse not to exercise until you returned home!

And a treadmill! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Hubby and I have joined a gym and Iโ€™ll be testing it out before too long. Scary!!

Well done Fab, you always inspire me! Go you! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Everyone loves a bargain. Iโ€™m not convinced by treadmills either - tried it at the gym (not C25k) and felt Iโ€™d trip up any minute!

Well done! ๐Ÿค— Bargain had! I checked out the treadmills at the local leisure centre the other day, now the nights are drawing in and the weather is getting colder it might be an option. Only ever run on a treadmill once - for gait analysis ๐Ÿคฃ

Thanks Equi! ๐Ÿ˜ That was my thought in trying it while Iโ€™m away, but Iโ€™m really not sure. My head torch might be my best friend this winter. I wouldnโ€™t rule the treadmill out, but it was complicated to set up too!! ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

Yes, I can't see myself preferring a treadmill TBH. I've ordered a chest torch as I already tip my head forwards too much! I'm probably going to start cycling in the gym until I feel confident enough to hit the roads. Might also be useful for doing the first few bricks, practicing running immediately after cycling. :)
