Ok, so…I am obsessed lately with my running and my ipod! sorry guys.
I'm actually a bit surprised that I have managed to go through June and into July essentially injury free. I think it is because I have not been following a specific training plan but instead running what I can and increasing very incrementally . I'm not fast at all, about a minute slower than my faster times last year, and I still have to stop and walk a little here and there. Still, I see improvement in time and endurance and that is what has me feeling good. In addition, the getting up and getting going seems to have become more routine. I seem to have for the most part figured out how to work the night shift with the running and all seems well. I do seem to have a bit of tunnel vision…
Eat, run Sleep work, swim, walk dog, repeat….
So, I've decided to use the ipod for a while, until I drop some more time…(I bet I am hopelessly addicted, but don't want to admit it)
But I only have 5-6 songs on the pod.
It's a bit of an eclectic mix.
We have the original Christian Boy Band…The Newsboys, singing Shine
It's a Christian song, I am a Christian so I'm all into the message. I also appreciate the lyrics which are absurd and involve vegetarians BBQing hamsters and Bouncers taking ballet lessons.
Miriam Makeba's Pata Pata is showcased earlier in the blog.
I also have added
RamJam's Black Betty…
which is oddly, perfect for the running purpose. even the riff in the middle is alright for running to, and it doesn't start out slow and then abruptly change tempo…
The last one I added was Ace Frehley:
This one is a little off, there is something about having to concentrate on the faster tempo that runs under the one thats readily apparent, but I like the song.
I plan on adding
As I am rather fond of this one, plus I know all the words….always a plus.
So, I could use some suggestions…..something upbeat and with a nice fast pace would be awesome.
