First run with Nike app and own music

son in law sorted all stuff on I phone --- cast off from daughter First run this morning to 60 s music and NO Laura Nervous in case it all didnt work but it did and I loved it! lucky no one in park to see me dancing around at one point According to stats I ran at similar pace as my parkrun time so well chuffed at that

That sounds like a good run , it's great isn't it running to your own music , I have only done the stepping stone podcast speed once because I like my own tunes & doing my own thing mind you DO NOT get carried away , like I did ! Happy running .

It's funny cos I was thinking of you when I was running and set phone for 35 mins I think I'll need to play about with it and maybe try and find a structured plan to follow Miss laura and the wk ? R? How is your ankle

It's a bit improved from yesterday , can walk without limping as much , but still twanging if you know what I mean . Yes I can't believe I've been so daft fitfor60 looking back at my distances I've def done too much too soon ! , just learn from me , don't get carried away . Happy & safe running

Hehe, lovely! I sometimes click my fingers to the music and make my feet go to the rhythm - god help me if anyone is looking! Makes the negative thoughts go away though and I have fun :) happy new year! :)

How wonderful!! Glad you enjoyed it so much; that's what it's all about!

I've been given a new phone for Christmas; one of these smartphone thingies, so you've given me hope that I might be able to do the same thing. I just need to get a child to sort it all out for me. I think that I might get on to Amazon and get Hits of the 60s/ 70s/ 80s or something!

Youll love your phone I got album with 200 hits of the 60 s for £5 -- put them on shuffle and some very strange but half the fun

This sounds great. I'd love to try 60s hits. At the moment I'm enjoying the radio 4 comedy podcasts. It's so funny(no pun intended) that the act of physically smiling makes you feel happy (no matter how silly you look.)
