Leaves and poo and weird playlist


Yuk, fed up of having to wash my lovely new running shoes because I’ve trodden in some of the smelly stuff hidden under leaves. To be fair some of it is probably horse rather than dog and probably wouldn’t be so much of a possibility if motorists would move over and stop making me leap into the verge. Really do they actually need the whole road or do I just have ‘target’ written on my forehead!

Rant over, anyway decided I’d change things ever so slightly and out in some classical music so selected a playlist my husband had put together. Well it certainly wasn’t classical, there was some alternative rock stuff, unknown to me but well ok (I prefer grunge), then came some weird chanting, not sure you could even call it music, then some plinky plonk Christmas song with Bublé, all very weird and not a classical piece of music in sight. I’ll defo have to question him about it later-so completely random!

I run and dog walk in the road and I run/ walk at least 18inches to 2 feet from the verge on the road. I refuse to dive out of the way so they just have to slow down to get past. It takes a bit of nerve but maybe give it a try, or find somewhere with a pavement.

When I did c25k, there were only the Podcasts and of course the lovely Laura. The music was not great but part of the program. Since graduating I have run to the Sammi Murphy podcasts and now have a pretty perfect runlist for me which I complied myself. I love the tracks which I play on shuffle... I have used the ZombiesRun! free app alongside my playlist too, but am just as happy enjoying my choons on a run now...

Buble is not on it!😉 😊xx

You can just use the Samantha music and ignore her giving out the walk breaks for the 10k build up plan, just use as a background track maybe...

Thanks so much, I’ll check it out!


Good run putting up with that playlist!! I think I’d have been ripping my headphones out 😂

Really wanted to search for something else but knew I’d totally lose my rhythm if I started fiddling so resisted the urge.

I’m like that when driving in the dark on twisty roads with the radio on every time they play a song I hate... still haven’t learned 😂
