A whole host of random thoughts occurred today as I ran 6.5 miles.
First, I've switched from music to podcasts on my runs. Lately, the music seemed to drag me down and I would spend time flipping through my songs to see if I could find the perfect mix. It may be that the podcasts are just a change of routine, but I'm enjoying listen to various stories and information. In a way, it feels like I am running with someone who is just chatting about random things. Maybe I'll get tired of the chatter or maybe it is what I need to push to the next level in my training.
Third, It feels really good to get back into a regular routine of running. My ankle tendon has cleared up, my quads have stopped hurting and overall I am feeling back on track. It's been good to remember why I enjoy running.
Fourth, my luck at winning free stuff on the web has been pretty poor non-existant, but Adam over at The Boring Runner is doing a giveaway. It's probably nothing you're interested in, so don't bother going to see it because it increases my chances of winning.
Finally, I was sent a book from The Runner's Lounge to review. It's a compilation of stories that the site founders published. I will take a moment in an upcoming post to give my review.
