Okay, so not too long ago someone on here posted a story/article about doing HIT on the treadmill. Instead of running for an endless amount of time, you do short burst of sprints. The article stated something along the lines of, you sprint for a short period of time and then take a small breathers on the side of the treadmill. It sounded so much more appealing than jogging at an average speed, for a longer amount of time, so I gave it a go after my fitness class.
Let me tell you, I made a complete fool of myself. There has to be some special technique to gracefully transition to the sides of the treadmill, because my legs were flailing everywhere when I attempted. I almost fell smack on my face, and looks on the runners next to me were priceless. I couldn’t help but laugh at myself. Is there a proper way to do this?
Side note: So I generally don’t run on the treadmill, I know shocker, especially after you read my predicament above, but have you ever experienced someone try to one-up you, while jogging on the treadmill? I will admit that I like to compete with the person next to me, either trying to keep up or run a tad faster than them, but a girl next to me was blatantly trying to outrun me. She clearly kept watch at how fast I was going, and every time I would increase my speed, she would too. Maybe I’m looking too much into this.
