Here is a copy of my "treadmill burn" episode from my blog. Thought it was perfect for this thread! And yes, I still have the mark!!
Last night I got home from work and I jumped right on the treadmill. I was running at a good clip (6.0)when I had to quickly stop (my ds needed something) so I jumped onto the sides (and no...I did not stop the treadmill because he needed me NOW) and my right foot wasn't on the side...it was on the treadmill! So, imagine if you can...my right foot goes all the way to the end of the treadmill and my left food is firmly on the left side...well, this has never happened to me before and I was alittle slow in my reaction. So slow that my right foot was on the carpet in back of the treadmill, my left foot on the left side and my lower shin was on the treadmill belt. Is there a such thing as treadmill burn...sort of like road burn?? Well, I got this nice welt on my leg...and my son was looking at me wondering what the heck I was doing...yup, I planned that! Thank goodness I am flexible.....I wish my husband had been filming me running then I could of posted it for everyone's entertainment!! Too funny.
Another lesson learned! Ha ha!
Well, I am finally (wow!) on week 6! Last night I did W6D2 and I felt pretty good.
I was trying to beat crochetlocket's time of 3.33 in 40 minutes but once I got to 41 minutes I got to her 3.33. I just missed it by one minute! Darn!
Final time was 48 minutes and I did 3.75 miles treadmill burn and all!! Woo Hoo!!
