As the world knows by now, I have started "running" again (can I officially call C25K running? Well, I am.) My running gear seems to be in some sort of shock that it is being put to use this week. For instance when I tried strapping on my running kicks, I found all sorts of goodies stuffed in the shoes such as my lipgloss, travel deodorant, and chapstick. It was like my shoes purposely stole the stuff and when I missed it bad enough I would check the shoes. Nope. I am just finding it now after several months. Then, both my Garmin and iPod decided that since I haven't been needing them, they banded together and decided they were on strike as well. Both dead.
Because I felt like running with some tunes, I decided to take Chubby Hubby's iPod. He has all sorts of songs and podcasts on his. Since I wasn't in the mood for any political crap he had saved, I turned it to a random mix of his song library. Lets just say it is time for an iPod makeover. There were a few songs that took me back to my marathon training time of the summer of 2006, there was some craptastic country tunes (WTF?), and worst of all kid tunes. I was running along when I picked up the pace and started belting out Laurie Berkner. When I realized what I was doing....the song was just about over. That is just wrong, wrong, wrong. Especially since 2 out of my 3 kidlets prefer classic rock or metal.
If you ever want a run to go quick, take someone else's iPod. It will make you say WTF.
One week down of C25k and 7 to go! I am off to try a hell session with our favorite bad ass trainer, Jillian.
