After the monumental success of my "boring" podcast run last Sunday I went out this morning with relish. Which podcast to choose today I thought? Gardeners Question Time or an American Quiz? I like gardening but I'm no expert. I'm more of a GCSE standard gardener really, so I thought I'd save the GArdeners Question Time for another day. I opted for the American quiz podcast instead.
Off I set with the sun shining brightly in my eyeballs, so I was glad I wore dark glasses. My ears exploded to the twang of 4 enthusiastic American presenters who kept saying "awesome" to virtually any scenario. The quiz was pretty dull if I'm honest, but I did learn that an anagram of the country SURINAM is "ANURISM" which if you forgive the lack of the letter "Y", kind of rocks!!
Back to the run though - my legs felt good, breathing was fine and the constant yabber yabber in my ear holes did the trick and kept me going. I was convinced this was the longest run yet for me........alas I was wrong! Perhaps the quiz made it seem longer, but I came home in a not too shabby 33 mins covering 5.6K. I was sweating like a thing that sweats loads, but managed to NOT be out of breath. Which is amazing??!!
Sophie the cat ignored my story about my run and snoozed happily in the sunshine on the kitchen mat, whilst I stretched my legs for 10 mins.
I never did get to the end of the quiz. That's ok though because it served it's purpose. And besides, there's always Gardeners Question Time next......
