It’s been a bit over 24 hours after my longest run to date, and I am happy to say I’m not that sore and am ready for April 28th! Come on, Derby City Mini Marathon!
Now…to address the whole issue with my running playlist. I’ve heard it so many times now and am bored with it. Yesterday I listened to Pandora, and that seems promising. Hopefully by the time the mini rolls around, I’ll be at a point where my station has a pretty good idea of what I like. I ran into the issue where I had to listen a few songs that I don’t care for because I’d skipped/disliked my quota for the hour. Or maybe I’ll be in love with my playlist again. Or, thought number three, maybe I could go through the bazillion of songs we have in iTunes and find new songs. Or maybe I’ll work on all three because, for me, there’s nothing worse than being bored with my playlist.
I’m terribly dependent on my playlist. I’ve attempted to run without my iPhone a time or two, and it hasn’t gone wonderfully. With the exception of the Zombie Survival Run, I was crazy bored and miserable without the right music. I can do my short runs (1-2 miles) without my playlist, especially when I have a running partner. I rarely have a running partner, so the playlist is a must for me.
