You've been on a treadmill for a while and then suddenly step off. Why do you feel like you're moving much faster than you think you should be?
After a session on a treadmill you might have noticed that when you get off the machine you feel like you are walking much faster than you really are.
These days, lots of people get their exercise at gyms and health clubs, oftentimes by walking or running on treadmills–that is to say, running without going anywhere. If you’ve ever been on a treadmill for some time and then suddenly stepped off it, you’ve probably experienced the weird sensation that you are suddenly moving much faster than you think you should be.
