I tried something new today. I didn't love it. I don't recommend it.
I am currently listening to an audiobook. I have a 35-45 minute commute to work and I am trying to get into the audiobook habit which makes me feel a little old, I must admit. I found that I can download directly from the library using my iPhone (certain books, limited selections) which makes this practice fairly convenient. I actually found a book that I am enjoying so tonight when I got home from work, I thought I'd try listening to it during my run.
After about 10 minutes, I was switching to my current running playlist instead. But at least I tried it and now I know I need my music to keep me running.
Speaking of running, it's a Tuesday again, missed Monday. Oops. And I have not found my treadmill stride. I think I bounce too much up and down on the damn thing which makes my legs hurt and makes me feel more impact, if that makes sense. When I'm outside I'm propelling myself forward, but on the treadmill I seem to be propelling myself up in the air. I increased the speed a bit today which I think helped some, but I just didn't feel the natural rhythm that comes with a comfortable run.
I am hoping for some nice weather in the coming days so I can get outside. I'm on vacation until 1/3 starting this Friday which means I can run midday--perfect time of day, especially if I can get outside!! Crossing fingers on this.
Speaking of crossing fingers, remember that other thing I was crossing them about? Yeah, he didn't get selected, not even for an interview. Stink!
