If you have ever run on the treadmill or ‘d-readmill’, as some runners call it, it is a tough thing to master. Running on the treadmill is not the same as running outside, obviously. But sometimes running five minutes on a treadmill feels equivalent to 30 minutes outdoors. Treadmills can take all of the glam and luxury out of running, leaving you with just your thoughts. Logging miles on a treadmill can be boring unless you have found a rhythm or technique to pass the time by.
Here are nine thoughts runners have while using a treadmill.
At least I can get some traction on this thing
I wonder if I am running faster than the person next to me
How can I drink water without stopping?
How have I only been running for one minute?
I am way too warm, I need A/C or a fan
Why can’t I seem to get this TV to work
Ok, I’ve reached one kilometre
Oh, what does this button do?
Ok, let’s pick up the pace a bit
