18 Weeks to Half Marathon
My goal is to run the Valley Harvest Half Marathon, on Sunday, October 11th, 2020 in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. 21.1km.
This Week – Total Kilometers: 50.20km
Introduced Wireless, Bluetooth Headphones
Jabra Elite 85h
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:
These songs are:
“Turn Down for What?”—DJ Snake and Lil Jon
“Get Low”—Dillon Francis and DJ Snake
