I woke up this morning with all the motivation and excitement necessary for a nice long run. However as I reached to add my final attachment, my IPod, horror hit me it was dead. I tried everything from restarting it to quick charging but alas I knew it would not survive the five miles I had planned.
So I entered the world sans music. At first it felt really strange… to strange at times I thought it would ruin my whole workout. However I was pleasantly surprised to find it was not all that bad. It was actually nice not to have to stop or continuously flip through songs. It was peaceful and reflective.
It was so successful I may start going out without music at least once a week (when I run outside),the music in the gyms are just unbearably lame. So it turned out to be a good thing since marathoners can’t use IPods anyway this was a good accident. Funny how things work out…huh
