Even a month ago, I would have shuddered at the possibility of using a treadmill, but the weather is limiting me. Partly, it is the cold, partly the slipping, and partly the lack of light. I know I'm wimpier than some of you, plus my husband gets stressed out worrying about me out in the elements. I now think, just give me a hamster wheel, anything, I need to run, even if it is in circles! Then, I read the stories and threads about injuries from treadmills, as well as them bouncing or heating up. Is there no hope for me here trapped in the house?
