that does sound weird, does your gym have treadmills without sides? Maybe try using that

I can't really say I have ever had a compulsion to jump off to the sides of the Treadmill. I have of course before, if I dropped something or my shoe lace came untied....but never just HAD to for no reason.

Maybe you should run outside for awhile until the compulsion leaves you emoticon

I have a really strange problem. I have run on treadmills for almost 20 years with no problems. About 2 weeks ago, a towel I had draped on the side rail fell onto the belt and I jumped off to the sides of the treadmill to pick it up. Now for some reason I have found I have this sudden urge to jump off to the sides for no reason. I keep trying and trying to stay focused but I just can�t control the urge and jump off. It�s like my legs have a mind of their own and I can�t control it. I don�t feel dizzy or off balance, I just have to jump off. Needless to say, it�s affecting my workout. I put my towels on the ground, by the way, so there�s no more threat of one sliding off. Has anyone ever dealt with anything like this, and if so, how did you overcome it?
