Running on the Alter G treadmill

Today I got to run!  The wonderful thing about the Alter G treadmill is that you are totally supported.  Walking, never mind running – is really hard work for me and I am at risk of falling.  Falls are NOT good. I go down like a felled tree and usually cause damage to my neck (whiplash, as I throw my head back) plus the fact that my arms don’t have elbows or wrists – means that I take the full force of my body weight through my shoulder joints.

My heart rate was getting up to 165bpm – I was walking and running with just 75% of my body weight – the remaining weight being supported by the air filled chamber underneath.

I worked up a healthy sweat and look forward to charting my progress.  I’ve booked a series of 10 sessions.
