i have to admit...

I was feeling pretty crippled after Saturday's ten mile/sixteen km run.
Mostly because it was cold out in the parking lot at the end of the run, and I didn't feel like hanging about to stretch properly. So, it was my fault.

Today's run was on the treadmill, so I didn't have to worry about it being too cold or too windy, etc. Too boring i had to worry about.

Running the treadmill requires music, because, even though there are a few televisions in the room, none of them are directly in front of me... and if i look up and to the right while running on the treadmill, i inevitably run into the guard rails. And then I either flail about to keep my balance, or fall over... either way, it leaves me feeling like catching the latest spanish soap opera or that re-run of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air just really isn't worth it.

And so, I choose headphones. Besides, get a good driving beat and I can run faster and further... too bad we're not allowed to wear them on TNT group runs.

  1. mp3's are pretty awesome; somehow their choice of soundtrack always works!
