I've been running to music since graduating but unless the beat is exactly right I find it a bit awkward and I seem to spend most of the run concentrating on my pace which doesn't make for an enjoyable run. Today I downloaded a talking book (I saw someone else mention it a while ago) and I think it might be the answer for me. Firstly, I didn't worry about pace at all - just ran at what felt comfortable, secondly, it made the time go faster, and thirdly, I've promised myself I'll only listen to this particular book while running and as I am keen to know what happens next it's going to be an added incentive to get out there. As a bonus, today was my fastest run too! Should add that it took me far longer to download the thing and transfer it to my damn iPhone which kept doing stupid things than I spent on the run! Anyone else listen to books? How do you find it compared to music?
