I was really encouraged by my run today. I decided I didn't want to run to music (nor to think about time), though I wasn't ready to go completely 'naked' yet. (Those monkeys are still too close at hand to not have some sort of distraction.) I found 2 episodes of Radio 4's Ramblings on my iPod so I decided to listen to one of those. Suffice to say I ended up listening to both!
I, surprisingly, found it much easier to get into a rhythm when not listening to music. I haven't been consciously running to the beat of the music, but I would imagine you speed up or slow down automatically depending on what you're listening to. With no music I felt I was doing what came naturally much more.
Anyway, I enjoyed this run more than any other, so much so that I ran for just shy of 4K (my longest run yet) and only stopped then because the search party would have arrived if I'd been out any longer. I think I finally felt the buzz today!
