Best feeling in the world (at least for today): when the jeans I’ve been wearing for months feel like brand new pairs because they are starting to fit more loosely.
Aaaahh, the Couch to 5K program is coming along, I’m on week 3, workout 3. And I think I might hang out here an extra workout just to be sure. I’ve read not to read ahead in the program and psych yourself out by thinking “I can’t do it”.
This weekend I went from one ipod to three. Saturday, after reading about the damage that can be done to a regular ipod when used during runs, I decided that might have been what killed my first ipod. With my commitment to exercise going strong I decided to reward myself and buy a ipod shuffle. Then on Sunday, or was it Monday, my sister lent me this hook thing used to open up ipods to aid in replacing defective batteries. So I opened up my old dead ipod to take a peek inside. I saw the hard drive and battery, pressed some squishy thing, and then low and behold, IT WORKS! So now I have a 40 gig third generation ipod, an 80 gig video ipod and now a shuffle. I haven’t taken the shuffle out of the packaging because I was going to save it as a reward for using the gym BEFORE work. Now I am debating, do I really need 3 ipods? Of course not, but the shuffle would be so great for running, it’s small, I would stop accidentally pulling out my ear buds and I wouldn’t have to worry about destroying a large ipod. For that price, of returning the shuffle, I could buy a really nice new pair of running shoes to replace the ones I’ve been using since 2001. Hmmm, quandary.
