On Saturday, I did 30 minutes of swimming, then 30 of biking, then 30 of running. By the time I got to the treadmill, I was pretty beat. I set it at my usual speed right away because sometimes my legs feel really rubbery after biking.
Then I tried to divert my attention..
There was some infomercial about hair care that I watched word for word to keep me from watching the clock with only occasionally checking the time. I also had my music going which usually clues me in to how much time goes by based on how many songs have played.
So, I think I had about 8 minutes left when I ran INTO the treadmill which caused me to fall forward and hit the emergency stop button, then causing my feet to trip up and I almost fell out the front of the damn thing.
I was too embarrassed to even look around, but I was determined to finish my 30 minutes, so I set it to an even faster pace and ran for 10 more minutes. Since hitting the stop button reset everything I don't know exactly what my finishing time or distance was, but I know I was close to if not over 30 minutes. I then quickly walked away toward the stretching area.
Good thing it was a Saturday afternoon on a nice day and there weren't too many people there!
