Training — Headphones! November 2, 2009

Distance: 3.9 miles
Time: 32:49
Pace: 8:25

I swapped yesterday’s recovery run with today’s rest day because I think my body responds better when I take a day off after the longer Saturday runs. Plus, I was feeling a bit under the weather after the Halloween festivities…if you know what I mean.

I felt good on today’s run. There hasn’t been much to report on these shorter runs, as I’m definitely getting stronger and my body is responding better. However, there is some sad news to report: my trusty headphones broke mid-run. It not only made for a boring final two miles, but now I have to replace them!

Sad panda.

I love these things. I’ve had them since 2004 and they cost me $20, so I guess I got my money’s worth. It’s just so sad to have to replace something that I’ve had and used for so long! I plan on getting the same clip-on style—I prefer it because I feel like they stay on my ear better, and if I take them off, they also conveniently clip onto shirt collars and the like.

Anyway, tomorrow marks a new era. Hopefully I can find a pair of headphones worthy of these.

That is a “sad panda” occasion… haha! Who knew that phrase would stick… I should tutor more high school kids… they know what’s cool.
