I have no idea what year it is, but judging by the fancy controls, I am guessingNever mind the year. It WORKS! The best part is that hubby has been working at moving stuff in the garage and there was a place to set it up :) .
1990 1980 something ?
The view isn't five star, but I can get that anytime I want outside, right? So, I pointed it at a nice wall of plywood and took him for a spin!
There he is!
(Pay no attention to the other motorized jobbies, only one of them is mine and it has a blade). :P
Sha-ZAM! Look at those knobs.
State of the art!
And all it cost me was the fuel for pick-up and delivery. Woohoo! Thanks Yvonne!!!
View of plywood and useful objects, not-so-neatly stored.
The view improves upon a high-quality electronic installation...Can't hear anything, but I might be able to scoot them close enough together to read the closed captions on my BBC movies.
It also folds up to keep the gnomes out of trouble. =D
So, it's been 15 years since I have used a treadmill with any regularity. I figured it might take some time to get re-acquainted. So far I have only taken it on two runs, but here is my short list of observations thus far:
- less time to warm up
- no gravel
- shorter distance from home if I need to be closer
- operational toilets always available (upstairs)
- nifty movie access
- no fear of log/gravel trucks
- no cougars or bears following me
- flat, flat, flat & less impact
- "performance" setting makes me feel like super-runner!
- 2-a-days now more accessible
- no cool breeze
- speed work is interesting...takes some advanced skills to do fartlek or repeats without falling on face
- can't just pull over anywhere to go behind a bush
The advantages are pretty sweet. I am stoked and might just have to figure out how to clean and maintain it so it will be running when my kids are my age :) Yee-Haw!
