I felt quite a bit under over the last few days, so took some days of rest. Thank you lovely B210k community, for all the advice. I only did a bit of Strength and Flex with Laura, and I feel much better.
So today I was ready for doing another 5k, and happened to run (according to Runkeeper) my 2nd fastest 5k ever! 👍🏽 So that’s good, although I did feel out of breath most of the time. 🥵 I ran to Runkeeper’s “My Conscience” which seemed fitting to the occasion (as I felt guilty not running over the last few days) but nothing special to report about that voice, as she is fairly neutral sounding.
But getting a good (for me) 5k time ⏰ might also be due to having chosen to run to my self-made running beat 🎶 . I had used GarageBand to throw together 60min of a steady 145 BPM (music beat per minute), nothing fancy but it had the right beat for me and really helped me to keep up a steady pace. 🎧
So for anyone running as slow as me (145 BPM) and also needing a steady beat, feel free to use it, 🤳🏻by putting in the RSS feed in your podcast player:
(On Apple podcasts, go to Library, Shows, Edit, add a show by URL)
But I should note I’m not a composer 🎵 and there are no vocals 🎤 and I was just very quickly pulling together some beats to get a stable music beat lasting ca 60 minutes. I’ll be putting some other beats up over time, as I explore running to different beats. But please note I’m simply putting tracks up there for my own running needs 🏃🏻♀️, but more than happy to share with anyone who might be interested to try them out.
They do get boring over time, but they do help me get out of a shuffling run to a more energetic bouncy run (e.g. running tall, running strong).
Happy running everyone!
