2 1/2 weeks ago I went out in the pouring rain and dark for a 25 min run and only (!! I don't really mean 'only') 18 mins. I lost confidence a bit. After seeing the discussion regarding treadmills, I looked on Gumtree and yesterday became the very proud owner of a treadmill. I was really worried about working it and not ending up falling off. It is a bit odd and I felt a bit unbalanced and had to concentrate on where I was on the running track, but not having to worry about who saw me and having a cup holder for water!!! was sheer joy. I managed 23 mins and could have gone a bit further, but didn't want to overdo it on my first attempt. I'm glad I left it there. I did feel a bit sea sick and wobbly after getting off. Has anyone had that? I get that too after getting off a boat so it may just be me. I'm feeling very happy and ready to get back on track.
