It seemed like a good idea at the time...

Let me preface by saying … yes, this is a true story, and yes it happened to me yesterday….


I was in my basement yesterday, leisurely walking on the treadmill going around 3.0 for a 20 minute mile…. I had finished a chapter of a book I was reading and did not want to start another chapter yet.  My mind was wandering the last few minutes of my routine...


I started thinking..  hmmmm … wonder if I can walk backward on this and help exercise different muscles… I’ve seen it done on Biggest Loser…  so why not try it? 


There was a flaw in my thinking….

Rather than take the time to turn off the treadmill and start slow, I simply turned myself around using the runners on the side… I stepped on the treadmill … still going at 3.0
Before I knew it I was flying off into a bunch of boxes piled behind my treadmill… 



All I could do was lay there and laugh at my stupidity!  Next time, I think I will do things a little differently...

Well at least you were in the privacy of your own home, I am so glad you didn't hurt yourself. Once I was at the gym dropped my water bottle not thinking I bend down to get it and end up flat on my face. I was so embarrassed.
