June 2011 Blog Posts (16)

The noise from the treadmill is comming in from my phone.

Hi, I'd like to know from all of you seasoned walkers if anyone has had this problem and any suggestion to solve it.  I plugged the treaddesk to power surge box and my phone is connected in the same outlet. I'm getting  some interference from the treadmill in the phone line.  I tried another outlet for the phone in the same room but was the same.

Ah well i did not walk much yestrday on the tread i for sure walked alot into office and back home but well yeah my feet convinced me that walking on the tread sucks to hard after a real walk so i just did two rounds a 100 minutes at 2,5km/h -> 8 km.

anyway i checked weight today, 119kg :( ok yes i also remember being tired the whole week and eating like 3 meals maybe i just should sleep more and eat less to make it have more effect.

yesterday (day 8) was calm. - i mean regarding the tread/walk thingy. Just did 11kms. sore, ache was in noticable but nondisturbing boundaries which motivated me to walk into the office today so gonna tell you tomorrow how this day went, having an additional 1,5hours walk before even stepping on the tread.

day 7

ok yesterday the silicone lubricant arrived. that stuff is sick i can tell! everything that had contact with it became slippery. socks, my hands, the belt on my tread ! gosh that thing really got silent when not walking on it you can't tell if the machine is on or not, there is not even a whisper. <3 !

ok but my feet convinced me to just make 200 minutes yesterday so that is around 8,5 kms @ 2,5 km/h

i went home showered and noticed how good the shower felt on my feet i then…

day 6 - well just a few hours.

again holiday in germany "pfingstmontag". Well i just went (yep, by foot, 1,5 hours walk from home) into the office to use some of the time for the project might need it soon, and i don't want the stress comin hardcore then.

So, whats new. Well my feet feel funny, they don't hurt but they tend to feel uncomfortable for a few minutes in one pose and the moment you chnge it they just decide to not like the other pose either :) but the moment i walk they shut the fuck up and just are…

Day 5, it is working :D

I started last friday so yesterday was the 5th day.

I am still waiting for the lubricant my tread went kind of warm yesterday so i went back to sitting to prevent any damage... called the company up they kind of lost my order *sigh* ok they promised to be quick about it. so today i will just do little walking and try to keep the machine as rested as possible, stoping when the belt gets warm.

so yesterday i did like 4,3 hours at 2,5km per hour so that is 10.8 km.

Day 4

1st: i am not entirely sure if i want to keep updates on a daily basis, maybe it will get boring sometimes, - dunno.

My goal is to document the development untill walking became a nonissue habit, the tread broke, i lost 30kg - whatever happens first. I felt a hunger for information about how the whole walking thing turns out, so i want those following after me give some read to encourage them to keep going - *giggle*. so comments about what you miss or what you want more are welcome.…

phew Day 3

sorry i had no time to post yesterday.

My left foot kind of still hurt much the right one does not care about the walking...

Day 2

Ok it is monday.

Reachig lunchtime i already had again 7kms my left foot kind of bothers me but that aside i feel great.

the foot sole kind of feels tight i just hope that this will go away soon for it kind of is distracting.

i like walking barefoot for it kind of feels more natural. frequent little massages of the sole just to loosen them up keep me walking...

Ok, today that were about 13+ km ( 8.1+ miles) in 6+something hours.


total distance end…

My Treadmill is HERE!

I'll be posting a picture once I go and get a treadmill mat but I'm so excited. My treadmill is here it is the commercial showstopper from several years ago but it buys me time to get moving and establish a treadmill fund if it becomes necessary for me to replace it one day. My prayer is I'm able to get the get down below 250 as steady and healthily as possible. It's already happening I'm just here to enjoy the journey. Pulled out my foot spa. From what I read my toesies will take a moment to… Continue

the first full day

Today i went to the office prepared. I brought some thongs.

- Guess what, i experienced my tread to halt the "exercise" after 100 minutes. My colleague laughed about my face, kind of funny but also a little embarrassing for i like stood there in the step and must have looked like not knowing how to get my feet in normal standing position together, oh well, i was focused on something technical so no biggie.

- Today i went down to 2.2 km/h which is kind of comfortable to…

just to encourage others i thought about documenting my progress a bit. i didn't catch what i walked yesterday but i shall try not to forget it again.

So today i stepped on the weighing machine. "holy crap!" 119,7kg :( yeah that job really would kill me...

i am quite exactly 1.80m tall, male, so i guess around 75-90kg i should be, given the fact that i have no real time to workout building up huge amounts of muscles and stuff, - well maybe that is subject to change somewhen too…

tread arrived

Yay it finally is here!

I had a little trouble freeing the tread from the stuff around it but well, everythings working so far, going to post a picture tomorrow. Funny thing is, the cable that connects the tread with the console is put and worked into these metal bars. So in order to make space for the desk i turned it around like from my working place i am looking at these parts like i was looking at the normally build tread from the front so to reach the buttons i just bend the…
