Weird one!!

Well that one turned out to be a bit different. On the dreadmill...5 mins warm up done, upped the speed, all good for about 10 mins then it started going all weird on me! Dropping to 2mph, next second up to 5.9mph then dropped back to 2!! Was all over the place, so hit the stop button cursing 🤬, oh well that’s it for today then, bloody waste of time and mojo...hold on, all warmed up just get your arse out on the pavement woman...so I did!! 😊😊 bloody freezing but did another 15 mins round the houses. Very pleased with myself as first time out in the dark and I feel amazing now I’m back home!! 🎉🎉 nice warm shower and a cup of tea in order now I think. Happy Sunday evening peeps!! X

Hmm - sounds then definitely like a defect in the machine! These things happen - good for you in not letting it defeat your workout

Yeah maybe...I have missed outside a lot I much prefer it, just not a fan of dark and cold, but I really enjoyed it, I know rainy night would be a different story though!

I've mostly avoided rain 😂

Well done! I was not as brave as you, having quite a lot of work to do and very cold outside and a bit windy again. I hesitated but after going to the shops at lunch, came back convinced I would not run today. So, that'll be for tomorrow afternoon. Good luck with the treadmill if you can't go out (isn't there any buddy or group run you could join in the evening if you don't want to run in the dark by yourself?)!

I was fine once I actually did it!! Wouldn’t go out later it was only about 6, but is pretty safe around here. Should have changed first as vest top and thin jacket not really ideal, took me ages to warm up!! Live and learn. Not sure about groups.
