Yesterday I went on a run and had my ipod on, enjoying the weather. I had a good run on Monday, but yesterday was a struggle. I was lucky I brought my ipod because my only motivation was good music. I had Pandora on some of the time and I didn't want to waste a good song on walking, so I would tell myself I'd keep running for that song then walk a block. It totally worked. The ratio of run to walk would have been much lower if I had decided to run without music. So it was a total blessing yesterday, despite my goal to use my runs more as a time to think without distractions! Yay for technology!
