So today I had my first treadmill fall.
I planned to run outside but with 41km/hr winds I couldn't risk the girls in the stroller, as it becomes a giant sail when the cover is up. So I had to run inside. I'd prefer not to run at night so I tried to run today. It was such a disaster!
First I put Katrina down for a nap. Then I had to set up the treadmill in the new location where I am able to view Lillian while I run. So that was the first part. I got Lillian settled in front of Treehouse with her toy trains, and started to run. Less than 2 minutes in Katrina cried and I had to go get her. So I stopped the machine, got Lillian away from her toys (not an easy task) and went upstairs only to find Katrina still asleep. So I went back down with Lillian, got her set up to play AGAIN, got on the treadmill AGAIN, and started to run. After a while I wanted to check on Lillian, she was fine, but when I went to get back on the treadmill I miss-stepped and I fell on the belt. I tried to get back up but it was moving and if I let go it was result in me hitting the belt. I was getting rug burns on both knees and couldn't get up so I just let go on the side. Lucky for me I moved the treadmill and knew the only thing behind it was 2 metres space and huge bin of sewing fabric. After all that, I kept running because honestly if I were in a race and it happened I would have to keep going, so I did. But after 24 minutes Katrina woke up again, and that was the end of my run.
So I banged both knees, and my right elbow, have rug burn, and didn't even manage to get my stupid run in. So I guess I'm going to have to start getting up early so I can get my runs in before Steve leaves for work. I'm not going to like it but I should get used to it, and if I want to run later in the day, I'll have to run outside. I may need to start running outside when it's more windy.
Sorry to be a bit of a bummer today but I'm disappointed in my whole running predicament and with my hubby going on a trip next week it doesn't make me confident in getting my runs in.
