Immune to the weather because of threadmill
Sometimes running outside is plain dangerous!
I don't mind a bit of rain or snow, but when the streets turn into ice rinks, it's not smart to go outside for a run! But what gets to me even more, are high temperatures. I can't think of anything worse than running in humid, tropical temperatures.
But that doesn't mean I want to skip any runs! I hate skipping runs, because it makes me feel all antsy. So I've been eyeing gym equipment for training at home for quite some time now.
Once I even bought a treadmill, but because I was too stingy to fork out for an electrical one, it turned out to a dud. I had to hold the sidebars to get the thing moving. It was nothing like running outside, because I had to keep my hands on the bars the whole time. Eventually I sold it to some guy who wanted it for his 'broad'. He was kind of scary looking, so I hope his 'broad' liked it… If I ever buy a running machine again, it'll be a motorised one.
Yummy! Look at this one!
I'm always reading how runners should do more than just run, and should do exercises to strengthen their core muscles etcetera, and this machine would help me do just that.
The best thing about having home gym equipment, is being able to do your work out while watching television. You get a great work out while watching Grey's Anatomy or something.
Do you own any home gym equipment?
