I’ve had two runs without my iPod. On Saturday, I forgot it at home. It was no big deal since Babe decided to accompany me. I knew I wasn’t going to break any records since it was day one of “the affliction.” We took it pretty easy; ran a little, walked a little. It was nice to have an easy run/walk early in the morning, along the beach.
Yesterday, we changed into our running clothes as soon as I got home from work. I remember the iPod, but discovered that it was dead. I haven’t listened to music at work in over a week, and it generally charges on the speaker dock. Oops!
Again, we took it easy. We ran and walked at irregular intervals. The weather was perfect for a long run, but I wasn’t feeling up for it. I wore my calf sleeves, but was still feeling it. I think that may be an effect of running up and down 4 flights of stairs several times on Monday and Tuesday. Still, I pushed a bit and did what I could.
Today, I hope to leave work a bit earlier than usual. That way, I’ll have to time to change at home, and drive to a nicer spot to run. The highway by our apartment isn’t ideal. There’s lots of traffic, and it’s not pretty. At all. I’m not sure what traffic will be like to get to the nicer area, but we’ll see. The days are longer now, so I’m more confident in doing it.
Pictures of the other running spot tomorrow! No, it’s not the same as the weekend beach. You’ll have to wait and see.
