I tried the treadmill for the first time last night. It was my first time ever on a treadmill. This is why I do not go to a gym! I am likely to fall and embarrass myself. I prefer to workout at home as I do not like the idea of other people witnessing my clumsiness! Even my husband knows how clumsy I am, but thankfully he still loves me.
Our treadmill arrived a few weeks ago and my husband and I finally put it together this week. It took about two hours, but it was really nice to spend that time with him. Usually he is doing his thing and I am left to hang out alone.
Due to safety reasons, I waited until our son went to sleep to use it. I used it for just under 45 minutes. While on it, I tried different speeds and inclines. I also watched a television show on Netflix on my phone. We have our treadmill facing the wall instead of the television because the instructions suggested having about 8 feet of space for safety.
When I decided to stop, I got off and turned off the machine. Unfortunately, something happened that I was not anticipating. My legs felt unsteady. I think my body thought it was still moving but my feet and legs were not. I fell and I tried to grab my phone from the stand and I dropped it. LOL
My body took a few minutes to adjust to not moving. Since my mom has used a treadmill for a few years I asked how for advice. She said that I am supposed to start in small increments and work my way up.
So, that is my treadmill epic fail story!
