I enjoy running to music but I sometimes get a bit bored then I find it hard to keep running. So today, on my first post grad run, I decided to give the spoken word a try. Oh my lordy it was fab!!! I was listening to Josie Long's Radio 4 podcast, Shorts - the time just flew by. There are so many different programmes to choose from so I'm really looking forward to listening to some interesting shows.
For the first time today I also measured the distance of my 30 minute run. I'm still quite a bit off the 5k at 3.7k but I found that I didn't mind. I'm now going to concentrate on getting my speed up and aiming for that 30 minute 5k.
Since we've had such lovely weather, today was only the second time I've run in the rain, I really don't like it ! But hey ho, this is Wales and if I let rain put me off I'll be back to sitting on my behind on that couch!! So I'm now researching suitable rainy day gear!!
