My Poor Treadmill

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Last week in mid-run my treadmill died. Well I guess it is having a nervous breakdown. The computer display is freaking out and I can't program anything and even when I was able to get it to accept a program setting it pooped out after a couple of speed changes.

My hubby called a repair place to come take a look at it and they said they can't fix it since the console is toast and it's too old so they can't order one. We found one more place that might be able to order one but it's starting to look like I need a new treadmill. ~sigh~ Not really something that's in the budget right now. I had my treadmill for about 7 years though so I guess overall it cost me a little over $100 a year which is cheaper than a gym membership.

In the meantime, I have been running outside which has been kind of nice if a bit cold. However, it rains here constantly so while I have been lucky that we are in the midst of a freak dry patch, it is only a matter of time before the rain returns. I hope I can get an alternative worked out before then.

    My sincere condolences on your loss, but way to go rolling with the punches! If you can hold out another few weeks, I'd imagine there will be lots of excess treadmill inventory on sale after the January blowouts...then again, maybe the January blowouts are still on. You might also score a deal on a used one from folks who are trying to declutter in the new year.
