Good morning. 😀 After my heavier topic on censorship yesterday, I need something lighter. Well, ha ha maybe lighter is not the correct word in this case… after all this topic is 350 pounds of OUCH.
On Friday I went into our local sports shop and purchased a really nice running treadmill at a pretty significant deal with in store sales and I had an additional 20% off coupon. I was super excited to get moving on this one. Literally. 😛
With Valentines Day and then a busy Saturday as well I did not get a chance to work on it until Sunday late afternoon. The first step was I had to put wheels on the lower frame so I lifted the one side up, attached a wheel, went to lower it back to the ground and dropped the heavy metal track (probably at least 300 of the 350 pounds) on my left foot.
Does anyone else ever notice it is always on my left????
I took this picture right away and posted it on Facebook.
On Monday – I took these pictures:
It didn’t hurt a whole lot but my friends urged me to go have it looked at. On Monday afternoon I did go to Urgent Care where they x rayed my foot and found it severely bruised… but not broken. YAY!
Last night.. I finished assembling the treadmill.
I have not taken a stroll on it yet but I plan to after work tonight. My foot is still a little tender so we will see how it goes. I have a run I really want to do this weekend and I need to see where I am at with this . 😀
Yes yes… it is ironic to drop a treadmill on your foot… but if anyone is going to do it, it would be me. 😛
