I think my treadmill is on its last leg.
We bought it used almost 2,000 miles ago.
The liner under the belt is starting to unravel. It is coming off in big chunks that look like dust. It almost looks like I don’t use my treadmill or am bad at cleaning my house.
Every time I step on it, the treadmill growls. Seriously, I didn’t gain that much weight over the holidays!
Now I have to hang on to the hand rails when I run because sometimes it stops without warning or catches which might propel me into a wall.
Hey, at least it didn’t start to smoke!
So, I am faced with having to buy a new treadmill or join a gym.
If I join the gym I would actually have to drive a half an hour, share machines with strangers, and shave once in awhile.
But I could bike and swim in the winter. It has been hard to train outside when the lakes are frozen and the roads are icy.
Plus, it would get rid of an ugly piece of furniture(?) in my small house.
There are so many pros and cons to each scenario. I liked having a gym membership, but found it harder to make it work out with my busy schedule.
What do you do to make training easier over the winter??
