Yes- I posted a few times many months ago- got plantar fasciitis and fell off the map. But I'm back. Still going to physical therapy for my foot but trying to take better care of myself so I can run the rock & roll marathon in Seattle in June! Ironically, if you notice- my name is "wind runner"- I am posting this in order to see if anyone can give me treadmill advise. I need to buy one. I have spent the last 4 weeks slipping and sliding through the streets- forcing cars to avoid hitting me because I have to run in the middle of the street. The snow and ice are gone- however the wind has hit us full force and after turning 30 this year I decided that I'm too old to run in winds more then 40 mph (I'm only 1/2 joking about the old thing:) We're hitting gusts up to 80mph this week and hence- after living in the windy city for 6 years I put my foot down and demanded we get a treadmill!
That was a long explanation- but I would love some comments from people who own and who love/hate their treadmills. I use the treadmill as a very very last resort so it's not going to see a tremendous amount of miles- but I would love suggestions. I'm thinking about going with a Costco NordicTrak...??? Thanks ladies! It's so nice to know you're all out there- running with me!
