I just came home from my first non-naked run in weeks. My mp3-player broke many weeks ago and as a person who hates technical stuff and doesn't want to spend time comparing technical features I kept postponing the visit to the shops. Thus I ran naked, i.e. without music, for far too long.
Yesterday I finally got a new one and today, with the great tips from two members of this forum, I found some very nice podcasts, loaded them onto my new technological friend and off I went. Ok, I have to admit that it took me again a very long time to get the motivation to go out (my main problem in the last weeks). I listened to a BBC podcast and learned a lot about art, lawyers, prisons and pig farming. These topics distracted me completely from the fact that I was running so it was a lot easier and less boring than my naked runs.
Bonus: I couldn't hear my panting which probably helped a lot to make it less hard work to keep going.
The swines really made me run, as I found out while tracking my route at the computer after the run. In comparison to my last naked run, where I made 5.058k in 33:20 min, the swines on my first post-nudist run made me cover exactly 5k in 32:11min which is a PB!
I will express my deepest thanks to my next pork chop before I tuck in
