Last night I got home kind of late (~8:30pm) and decided to just do my run on the treadmill. I only had three easy miles scheduled and figured it might be nice to watch some TV while running.
As soon as I stepped on the treadmill I started feeling kind of dizzy though. It was really weird!
I did two miles on the treadmill and then decided to get some fresh air and do my last one outside.
As soon as I was outside I felt so much better. All the dizziness went away and I was able to knock out the last mile at my fastest pace of the night … which felt way easier than the previous two on the treadmill.
NO idea what that was about. Has it ever happened to you?
I sort of have a theory as to what happened, but I think it’s gonna sound really weird.
There is a big window in front of the treadmills at my gym.
When I first got on a bird started flying right at the window and I thought it was going to collide. Just out of instinct I kind of moved in a weird way as if to “avoid” the bird … even though it obviously would have hit the window before it hit me.
The bird dodged the window at the last minute, but maybe that whole thing just threw me off balance? Who knows!
The treadmill stinks anyway!
This little bear that doesn’t stink … he’s way too cute.
I hope you’re having a great Thursday so far! I know I am beyond ready for the weekend. My brain has been fried at work this week.
Plus I’m excited for next week because a new intern starts and I like shaping the young marketing minds of America. They’re our future, you know? : )
How often do you run on the treadmill?
– A handful of times per month, but after this experience I won’t be going back any time soon!
