A beautiful morning for a run, still and chilly (thinks: How am I ever going to manage in the summer? I get boiled running in the depths of winter. Anyway.). With the longer runs I have taken to listening to music, and have been trying out different songs to see which are best to run to. Last run I had an oldish song by Ben Folds Five called 'Army' at the beginning of my playlist, and this had me running rather faster than I would have, especially right at the start. By the end of the 25 minutes I was huffing and puffing quite a bit, but I did manage an extra 0.1 km :D.
So for today I had removed some songs and added some new ones, but bravely (or foolishly) decided to leave Ben in there. This time I put the thing on 'shuffle', which meant that all the way though the run I was thinking 'eek, when's the Ben Folds Five track coming??'. At the same time I was also thinking: 'Where's Laura?'. After a while I decided that the app had stopped working and Laura wasn't going to tell me I'd been going for 5 minutes, or when it was time to stop, so I decided to run to a certain landmark and call that my run for today. It was fine, and I think life without Laura will be ok... although I hope she's back for my next run!
Ben never showed up either
