But the last run was just plain annoying! Picked a new route which turned out to be a bit of a mistake - busy narrow lane, with loads of drivers flying down it far too fast. Had to stop on the verge several times to let drivers past, but I tried to be good and paused the podcast every time. Unfortunately, when I was more than half-way through the run, I managed to press the wrong button the MP3 player, and it went from cheesy week 8 music to....... Ludwig van Beethoven???? How did he end up on my player?
Couldn't get back to C25K podcast where I'd left off, so had to guess where to start it again. I'd planned to run for a couple of minutes into the final walking section anyway, to make up for my repeated dives off the road to save myself and dogs from ending up as roadkill, and I certainly didn't do less than 28 minutes' running, so I count this as a valid run.
Most annoying of all, though, was that my first attempt at measuring my distance failed. I dug out my old pedometer and reprogrammed it for running, but the blasted thing didn't record a single step! Now if I can only get to grips with these online route planner thingies, I could use more up-to-date technology. If not, I'll just have to jump in the car and drive the distance I ran. But one thing is certain - I'll not be using that route again!
