Grzybowski did stray somewhat from her contest template last August during the first-ever World Gym Express "Prison Break." Based on the Fox show centered around a correctional facility in Joliet, Ill., the contest began with Grzybowski placing all participants in a hypothetical jail. The first step toward freedom involved strength training — "You need to build up your strength before you break out of jail," Grzybowski says — with steps two through five dedicated to traversing the 287 miles between Joliet and Fairfax one cardio minute at a time. With the fifth stage starting in mountainous Wheeling, W.Va., contestants were required to log their treadmill miles at an incline. During each day along the escape route, participants were allowed one reach into a grab bag, with the chance that it might yield a coupon for a free protein drink or a note reading, "You hitched a ride on a train and cut 10 miles off this particular leg of your journey."
去年8月份World Gym Express举办首届“越狱”比赛时,格日博夫斯基确实与原先的比赛模式有所不同。这项比赛取材自剧情围绕伊利诺斯州乔利埃特一家监狱的福克斯电视剧《越狱》;比赛一开始,就由格日博夫斯基把所有参赛选手关入一座假想监狱。要获得自由,第一步就需要进行力量训练――“你需要加强力量,之后才能逃离监狱,”格日博夫斯基说。第二个到第五个阶段主要走完乔利埃特与费尔法克斯之间的287英里路程,每次做一分钟的心肺功能锻炼。由于第五个阶段从多山的西弗吉尼亚州惠灵市开始,参赛选手需要在跑步机上走完斜坡路程。在沿着逃生路线逃跑的每一天,参赛选手可以伸手摸一次摸彩袋,有机会摸到免费蛋白质饮料的优惠券,或者上面写着“你免费搭乘火车,这一段路程缩短10英里”内容的便条。

从hitched来看,似乎应该是已经享受了这种便利。但从这里的环境来看,这种便利似乎应当是尚未享受、但即将可以享受的。
不知原译如何改正比较符合逻辑?
