Since I’ve transitioned from running on the elliptical to running outside, listening to music was my iPhone in my pocket, turned up just enough so I could hear it as I ran. Ear buds don’t stay in my ears and they hurt. I bought an iPhone armband holder for warmer weather running, again without headphones – my running playlist turned up just so I could hear it. As I ran past people, I always held my breath, waiting for someone to tell me to turn my music down. Thankfully, that never happened, some people actually cheered my music!
I decided one day, enough is enough – I need headphones! My husband is a musician, and knows his headphones. He recommended the pair I am now wearing, Jabra Elite 85h. My running has been taken up a level, as I can now truly loose myself in the beat and run with it.
My pace has improved, holding at under 8’00” minutes a kilometer!
Songs That Push Me Faster
This week, I have two new favorite running songs I found on the website:
This week included deer, messages of hope and a slug that proved he can conquer his mountain!
First 15km – Stronger With Every Step
This week I ran my very first 15km. I remember when 5km took everything I had!!! If you’ve set a running goal, keep at it! You’ll be stronger with every step!!! You can achieve your goals… just like the slug climbed his mountain!
