I just didn’t feel like running today. I wasn’t even going to run but I decided maybe I can sweat out whatever sickness is in me. And- I actually didn’t have a bad run! I challenged myself by sprinting and trying to get a faster pace. That didn’t happen. But- the five star effort was definitely there! Today’s Lesson: Some days you can really surprise yourself at how far you can push your body to go. And this was one of those days, friends!
Here’s a little playlist that got me through today’s run: It was an interesting playlist because the first 15 minutes were moderately slow tunes. And- I managed to run at a nice fast pace which really surprised me. It just shows that maybe I can run at a fast pace without listening to any music at all!
Runner’s World also told me that for every 2 workouts I do with music I should run once without any. This is because your body starts getting immune to music and eventually your jams will stop working as a motivator for you. Hmmm… sounds like a podcast will be coming in the near future!
My cool down started off withBrian Dale’ssongSail On.Brian (aka B Dale) is a good friend I met while living in the beautiful Grand Bend (aka GB to my local jammers). Brian is an extremely talented artist who puts on a great set everytime I see him. Whether it is a solo show or his Jam Nite Band at Gables. (Every Monday night of the summer!) I will never get sick of going to his gigs. I can’t wait until he starts selling out stadiums!
A word of advice- if you can see Brian in Grand Bend– do it! It will always be my favourite atmosphere to watch B Dale! Dancing like there is no tomorrow without any flip flops on! If you’ve never been, you wouldn’t understand…
