When I was finishing my run at the indoor triathlon a few weeks ago, I grabbed the heart-rate monitor handles on the treadmill so I didn’t collapse when I was finished. The screen immediately started scrolling something like this across it:
IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONTINUE!!
I don’t know what my heart-rate was, but I’m sure it was through the roof. And the machine wanted me to stop. But I have a theory: the machines want to keep us from getting TOO fit so that when they start to take over the world, there will be less resistance from super-fit humans.
That’s my theory and I’m stickin’ to it.
But maybe I’ve seen “Terminator 2” too many times...
