Since we we moved house, much of our well loved possessions have remained in boxes in the garage. We are renting, temporarily so I have had a bit of reluctance to unpack everything. All the posters reflect our landlords past hobbies!
Our new location is lovely, and suits us in so many ways, but the sad reality is that it’s not so great for an old lady jogger in the winter. Narrow roads, no footpaths, no street lighting. Not very safe after dark, I worry about getting splatted by a car. The clocks go back tonight so it will be to and from work in the dark, how will I run?
In my running grotto of course!
I have bought a treadmill and tried to create a cozy space in the garage for it😊 Cee Jay told me that she had fairy lights in her garage and I thought yeah!!! What a great idea! So it’s music, disco lights and sparkle😊😊 I’m off to B&M tomorrow where I hear that they have lots of LED lights at bargain prices😊
The treadmill arrived today and I had to do some assembly. I didn’t spend a lot, and it shows! The console is made of that silver coloured plastic so reminiscent of the 1980’s and the speakers are really tinny. The running strip is a lot smaller than the treadmills you get in the gym and I fell off (sideways) in the first 5 minutes. I decided maybe best to stick to a fast walk until I got used to it.
Anyhow, I plugged my phone in, got the disco lights on and managed an hour at my MAF heart rate. And I had the BEST time ever!!!😆😆😆 singing along and doing dance-y walks. It did occur to me that if I can sing along at MAF it might be set too low.
It was an experience that I’ m looking forwards to repeating 😆!!
