My neighbour popped round last night to tell me that another neighbour had a treadmill on his drive saying 'Free to a good home' - and it has a 'manual' and everything.
Went to suss this out and, yes there was the treadmill 'Free to a good home'. The outcome was that, after a quick trial on said drive, I gave it a home.
I am not sure how good it will be. It is a Manual machine. i.e. the belt is not electrically driven! I found it easier to use than a normal treadmill which always make me feel that I am heading for a tumble.
So, now I must sort out the garden room (remove the many bee boxes) and set it up in there.
I have been concerned that running in the ice could be foolhardy and even if this is only useful occasionally it must be a good thing.
Another update: I've been out of sorts with a chesty cough lately so not been running. Today I did W9 and just about managed it all. At the end I did some reps on the outdoor gym and then walked the 2km home. So my 'run' was 6.53km in 1h8mins. Very slow, I know, but out and done. 30 minutes non-stop running.
I also decided that today must be my first fast day on my 5:2 journey. Not done badly as far as hunger pangs go and really hoping I am now on the right path to improving my self.
Just got to hang on to the determination big time!
