Cruising to the music

Quick little jaunt around town with an extra mile at the end (because there was a good song playing!) for 6mi in 49:35. Another cool day 1-2C (33-36F), dreary overcast with light NW wind.

Plan was just an easy run and to try out an mp3 player for the 1st time. Never listened to tunes before in all my years of running so wasn't sure how it would all work. Will the wires be a pain, will the earbuds fall out, will I still hear the traffic noises ok etc? Found it a bit distracting at 1st, seemed to hear my feet pounding more, fumbling at the controls with gloves on (remember it is a cool day still) but quickly settled in. The run just seemed to fly by and on the last long hill to home I just kept on trucking with 'Thunderstruck' playing and finished off with 'Back in Black'.

The pace was good today, probably bit faster because of the music and the legs felt great but were a little cold depending on wind direction. Don't want to start with the tights yet but afraid once it goes -ve I'll have no choice. Now to find some more tunes for the next run...

I'd like to have an mp3 player for some of my runs. I have used a scan radio occasionally reception isn't that great. Whether I need (or want) music depends on my mood. Most times I am fine without it but some days you just need a little company. I have even run with music for the 1st half of a long run then ditched the radio once the sun came up.

I have been thinking about adding music to my running routine as well when I get into some longer more solitary runs.

I used to run with my mp3 player all the time. It's great to run up a hill with AC/DC in your ear (I recommend Iron Maiden and Chop Suey as well). However I gave up on that. Sometimes I really didn't hear the cars coming up behind me, and I decided it's too dangerous.

When you're running where you want to hear what's going on around you, just use one earbud. With only using one ear I can still have conversations with friends and hear the traffic, etc.

As for tunes, well my choice varies. I'm working on a new set to upload soon. I've loaded everything from fast country to heavy metal. Disco tunes work pretty good too.
