So, this article appeared in my facebook feed today talking about how treadmills first appeared as punishment for prisoners. Having spent many, many hours on a treadmill, I can see where this would make perfect sense as a punishment! Of course, I have no idea if it’s true, but I thought I would share it anyway:
I had to run on the dreadmill again today because of the continued ice outside. Since I ran in the afternoon today – I got to sleep in! – it might have been ok, just wet. Still, I decided to err on the side of caution and headed to the Y. I got a good 7 miles in:
Considering I rode on the indoor trainer yesterday for 2 hours, I was very happy with 7 miles. I only felt like death the last half! And of course, I appreciated those poor prisoners even more when I got done!
