  • Nope as it is one of my fears! I make damn sure this doesn't happen but still I always think, "what if I pass out and then my face is on the end of the treadmill and it doesn't stop." I always have the safety key in, but I'm just so irrational!!

  • not badly lol I have a huge scrape/burn looking streak up my leg and a bruise on my hip, my whole body was sore but right after wards I went to the water areobics class that a friend teaches and told her what happened and she got me in the pool and did what we could to minimize the pain i would have the following day. I went home took some alieve and actually didnt hurt too badly. My pride was hurt more than anything lol.
