So I went to the gym today and did my 1st treadmill run. The main reason was that I need to get new shoes - my old trainers saw me through the programme, but now at longer running times I'm getting sore insteps. Not having run on a treadmill before, I wanted to practise it before going to the scary running shop where they'll want to 'analyse my gait' and I wanted to make sure that I actually could run on said treadmill. So I plugged into the c25k+ podcast called 'stepping stones'. I think it was quite good though I actually couldn't hear it very well against the loudish gym music. Anyway, after about 20 minutes I accidentally pulled the lead out of my phone, the phone fell off its perch onto the treadmill and scooted off onto the floor behind me.... I kept going and the gym manager kindly picked it up and gave it back. Next, at about 25 minutes, by swinging my arms I managed to push the emergency 'stop' button on the treadmill. Oops. Again I managed not to fall over. So I have to say that I much prefer running outside, and will continue doing that unless it gets really cold, wet and windy. Next stop the scary running shop!
