Week 8, Run 3 = Interesting! :P

So instead of listening to my music I somehow in error managed to get an American podcast on 25 tips to make your home more secure followed by a debate on the 2nd amendment on the right to bear arms :O

Tried to change it to correct music at the start but as I didn't have my glasses on I couldn't see what I was doing and I also now realise that I can't seem to jog and do anything else without my legs getting tangled so I decided to just go with it!

Quite bizarrely though time seemed to go quicker than usual and before I knew it Laura was telling me I had 5 minutes left. :) :)

Thank you!

I actually think I may investigate some podcasts (of something that might interest me) rather than music for my next outing! :)

Desert Island discs has some really good people on I especially liked Micky Flanagan. #oldfart too 😀

There’s random people on too that I’ve never heard of but there’s the likes of Ed Sheeran, Tom Hanks etc. It does put the time in.x

Tom Hanks! Great! Would love to listen to that. Will line him up for the 20 ‘run Forest, run...’

Yes I’ve downloaded the Mickey Flanagan one for the next run. I quite like the mix of chat and music clips. More distracting than just music, for me anyway.

Yes the mix of music & chat really puts the time in. I think I’ll go with Nigel Owens tomorrow.

I love a podcast for a change! I listened to “Table Manners” the other day! A mother and daughter were cooking for George Ezra! 😀

Ha ha! I know the feeling when you've forgotten your specs and phone is misbehaving! Well done for persevering! 😁

Ha thanks. I did think (briefly) about stopping but knew how cross I would be with myself. Amazing how listening to random chat instead of music really seemed to be helpful as a distraction for me! :)

I do enjoy bobbing along to music but I might try giving a chatty podcast a try for a change... 😊

(Not that I’ve ever listened to THAT particular podcast) ... but yeah, I too am now choosing them over music.... and for me that’s quite a big deal🤔

I just find time goes much quicker. Good luck on the rest of your journey 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️
