The good thing about having a Nike+ Mini on facebook, I get this cute reminder that I’m already due for a run. Plugged on my ipod, synchronized few new songs and checked out runners+ as well as nike+ site only to shock me with a huge deficit of 30 miles. The sun is about to set and for the past 3 days my sleeping patters has been bizarrely petrified with insomnia; I saw the gloom and the beautiful weather, I figured, instead of bumming around online why can’t I just go ahead and take a great walk, think through life and how wonderful it has been. I gained back my focus and had jillian’s settings configured accordingly.
Good news is I was able to finish my run for 25 minutes ( hurrah! ) bad news is, It wasn’t a 5k route but rather a meaningful 3k ( I should work on finishing such in 10-15 minutes )
I sure did sweat a lot more than my previous 5k training.
.14 jog warm up.
1.0 km jog
0.5 km brisk walk
0.5 km jog, walk, high knee interval
1.0 km jog
I don’t understand what’s wrong with nike+ widget and it synchronized an awful flat line however thanks to runner+ it showed a more detailed stride. I seriously love the feeling of sweating after a route, there’s this sense of fulfillment and pride after having all these excuses run through my debatable thoughts.
Next, Aside from my becoming this Runaholic in progress, I remember having a conversation with Joko and few friends during our Surfing weekend about this Waterproof music player. I’m literally eyeing on one; Why so? Being a ipod dependent, I really do think I’d be able to train myself well when I’m entertained with beats per minute and not just having to think of some random song in tune as I paddle and kick my legs when trying to gain endurance each time I try to finish numerous laps.
Err.. I don’t think it’s advisable when you’re surfing though.
Wouldn’t it be more fun having to listen to Queen’s I want to break free or Don’t you forget about me by New Found Glory / Simple Minds ( or its other versions) far much better on its actual tune rather than having the chorus stuck on your head all the time? (which makes me laugh most of the time)
