As I watched this season of The Biggest Loser, I got very motivated to get on my treadmill....yes it sits quietly in my bedroom.....never turned on....collecting dust! I just had to have it about 3 years ago when friends of ours purchased one on Amazon at a good price and began to lose weight.
My husband got on it one time, yes one time, set the incline on 9, speed on RUN, and told me after his run, "this is nothing, I don't get it"....then his shins started to hurt and he suffered for several days, said he hated the treadmill, and hasn't touched it since!!!
I have to admit I haven't been on it in a very long time. I got discouraged at the amount of calories burned for the time spent on it.
I ramble....back to the story....I put on the sneakers, grab a big glass of water and No Power....dead. Hubby checks it and says it must have a bad board. Call the company.
OK....they must send me cables first....that's their recommendation...takes a week...takes him a week to put them on....not the cables...
Next is the lower board.....takes a week to get it....week for him to put it on....not the lower board
Next comes the upper board...I asked the tech. if there was anything else it could be and she said , "no if you have the safety key, that's all there is". My mind is thinking...what is the safety key?
Then I remember the key that is on the front....Oh yes I have the safety key......
BUT, is wasn't on the treadmill! Ooops.....it now has power.... Hubby was not pleased with me at all.....
Everyday he asks me how many miles I walked today....I have been busy...not today...I am washing windows. See the extent I go to!!! I'm awful! Wish I had an elliptical, (scared to ask for one)
