Last night, I reunited with a machine – the first treadmill I ever really used to run on. Not just do a cardio warm up at a brisk pace – run. It was weird that first time, after having run for over a year and a half solely on pavement. That was the first time I thought of them as a “gerbil wheel” – hence a “gerbil run”.
It was actually kind of nice. This one is old tech – it changes the elevation on the :00 of every minute, so it’s predictable, and it’s not overly complicated with only 3 set programs. It’s solid, it doesn’t shake when I run on it like many household ones do – and I’m pretty lean!
It was quite a sentimental half hour – and as such , a couple of photos:
And my actual workout:
