The TR100 offers an easy-to-fold and -unfold design.
Look no further than the LifeSpan TR100 folding treadmill, which collapses quickly and fits easily under a bed, in a closet, or behind a door (the folded frame measures only 11 inches thick). The TR100–which comes fully assembled and is ready to use right out of the box–is outfitted with a blue LCD console that tracks your time, calories, distance, steps, heart rate, and speed.

The console also offers such controls as an easy-to-use start button, up/down arrow keys, and a quick-start speed option.

And to make your workouts more efficient, the console offers five exercise programs that help you vary your exercise routine–a critical factor for people trying to get in shape.

Week 1 – Day 005 – 365 Days – Primer on Chronic Compartment Syndrome
A year or so later, an ice skating rink opened in downtown Providence, RI. A bunch of us got together to go ice skating for a friend’s birthday. I couldn’t do more than a lap. Despite being rather athletic for most of my youth, I had recently put on some weight and attributed the problem to that.
In 2000, it got to the point where I couldn’t walk for exercise for more than 1/2 mile. Soon, I began to develop a huge egg on the outside of my right leg.
I decided it was time to see the doctor when I couldn’t complete a walk during my lunch break. I had to sit and rest before I could limp back to the building. The swelling was immense.
I went to see an orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed me with Chronic Compartment Syndrome. To test for this, they take a huge needle that kind of looks like a skewer and the stick it into the "compartment" that surrounds your nerve to measure the pressure inside. The needle is hooked to a wire and some kind of pressure guage thingy. Ow.
Then they put you on the treadmill until you’re in agony and then they test it again. (And to my horror, they stick the needles back in the same holes!)
My readings were off the charts before I ever got on the treadmill, but I got the idea that the doctor was curious as to just how high it would go. I no longer remember the exact reading, but I do know it was over 100. Normal pressure is 0-15. I swear I would not make this up. It turns out that the "bump" was my muscle herniating out. It had rubbed it’s way through the fascia (the layer that protects your muscle from your skin) and was protruding. The pain I was experiencing was associated to the nerve being squished to death. I apparently make muscle very easily and i have some serious leg muscles. I don’t weight lift… I’m just weird I guess. The surgeon said that he expected to find some fat in my legs because I’m not a small girl, but said he had never seen such lean muscle before. "Not an ounce of fat." (He wasn’t looking at my thighs! 🙂 )
So, I had two surgeries in my right leg. The first one in 2000 wasn’t sufficient, but works for most patients. He wanted to try that before doing the more drastic surgery above.
I actually have 3 scars. One on the right side above my ankle and one about 4 inches above that which extends to about 3 inches. The third one is on the inside of my leg also above the ankle — in the lower third of my calf. They basically cut my leg open to allow for the muscle to expand sufficiently. They can’t sew it closed because that would defeat the purpose. Instead, they use a skin graft to cover the wounds. It’s wicked gross… but kind of cool at the same time.
The one on the inside my leg got infected with a bunch of different bacteria… including a Staph infection. GROSS. It started to smell like fish! WICKED GROSS. So it scarred pretty badly in that area– I was just glad I didn’t lose the skin graft.
I have only had one surgery in my left leg so far. I’m hoping to keep it that way. Otherwise, I’ll have another one like this. The recovery time is long, so I really hope I can live with it like this.
If my legs get cold when I sleep, or if I stretch a certain way… I can trigger really terrible muscle spasms. So, I have to be careful to keep my legs warm and be concious of how I move my legs when I first wake up. Other than that, I am able to walk just fine!
A little known fact about me is that my right calf is 2 inches bigger in diameter than my left leg. It’s no wonder my nerve was squished! My skin was just too compact.
Anyway, that probably more than you ever wanted to know about my leg or compartment syndrome.
