Treadmill Benefits

Treadmill Benefits

Hi all. I downloaded the app (again) after seeing my friend posting on insta and thought I'd give it another go. I weigh about somewhere be 15 and 16 stone. I gave up the 1st time round because I really felt conscious about being seen in public and the hard flooring would really hurt my feet and knees. Fast forward to 2 days ago where I bought a second hand treadmill. The 1st day I tested it... for an hour! This included the W1R1. Then today I did x2 W1R2's. I have to say; the treadmill has been a God send. Easy on the joints, don't have to worry about what I look like, I run to a consistent speed, not weather dependant and so on. Anyone contemplating getting a treadmill... I highly recommend it :)

Good for you. For anyone considering going outdoors, I would say, come on out, it's lovely out here, and no one notices what you look like.

Keep it up!!

Oh it's lovely and warm today. There will be times when I won't be able to use the treadmill and possibly there may come a time when I may not want to but for now it's great for me who suffers from social anxiety and depression. I feel tip top 💪
