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 with Brian Dale’s song Sail 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…

Check out Brian Dale’s Original Tunes! If you love them, you can buy his album peace/love/waves/song on iTunes and support the arts!

Also… On the way out of the gym I found an Australian 5 Cent Coin! There wasn’t any bad luck with that one… yet! And- I didn’t even embarrass myself today… yet! ha!
