For a little while now, I’ve been contemplating buying a treadmill so that I’ve no excuse in not running when the weather is poor. I know I could suck it up, and run in the pouring down rain, but where is the fun in that? Plus, how’d I run while holding an open umbrella? 🤭
Over time, it would be much more cost effective than gym membership, and to be honest, I couldn’t see myself as a MAMIL in a gym anyways. The thought of that gives me goosebumps.
The downside is the initial hurt if I was to put my hand in my pocket to buy one… I’m a bit of a cheapskate.
Plus, I don’t have a lot of room in my home for a treadmill, so I’d have to opt for a folding model.
If I bought one, it would probably be used two or three times a week, weather dependent. I wouldn’t be too fussed about it having all the bells and whistles, such as bottle holder and heart rate monitor – they are gimmicks after all, and just push the price up (cheapskate).
I must admit, I’m particularly interested in the Reebok ZR7 Treadmill. In the UK it is currently priced at £300 ($390 USD). Unfortunately, it’s got all the features that I don’t think are needed (cheapskate).
- Do you have a treadmill?
- Do you use it?
- What should I do?
- Will you buy one for me? Lol
Maybe I’ll wait until the January sales 😂
