I put the treadmill together a week ago, and though the iFit stuff is still not working (apparently I need a new console – fun times), the treadmill itself is working fine.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve walked a few times on it with sprints here and there, while I had the TV on, I even did a “terrain” workout where the elevation kept increasing (however there’s a loud “thump” under the belt when the elevation is beyond 10 – any ideas?), but I haven’t actually run on there yet.
Can you tell that was fixed today?
I didn’t do much, or go far, I still need to get myself back into the swing of running, but 2 miles is still better than no miles, right? Specially when they were all running. I kept a slow-ass pace of 12 min/mile, but with three 1 to 2 minute sprints at 8:30 and at 7 min/mile pace. So it wasn’t too bad.
I could have gone longer, but I was starting to get really bored, and I figured I want to leave my first run on the treadmill on a good note, not a dreadful one, so that tomorrow I’ll be back at it again!
And guess who else tried out the treadmill tonight?
