I was still feeling like crud yesterday so I stayed home from work to rest and recover. In the afternoon, I was feeling much better and didn't want to completely skip out on running so I figured I'd try out the treadmill I bought off Craigslist for $50. I hooked it up and got going. Immediately I noticed a humming sound coming from the motor. Not a good sign! I kept at it, slowly. I basically wanted to get my heart rate up and legs moving for a bit but not push it. I stayed on for 15 minutes. I noticed that the treadmill showed me as only running .3 miles. Thats about a 45:00 mile. I don't think so! I'm going to research treadmill maintenance and see if I can get it worked out. If not, I'll put it up on Cragslist and find another one.
As for my sickness, I'm still pretty stuffy today but feeling better. I'm not going to attempt a lunchtime walk though. :)
