Today, I did something a little new. When I got up, I didn't feel like running, but I did want to get a run in later on. So, I got up and changed in to my running clothes and ate breakfast. A few hours later, I went running sans mp3 player.
I went for a short 2 1/2 mile run without any music. I don't think I let my tummy fully settle before I left, though. It got a little woozy when I was almost home. It wasn't too bad, though. It was kind of nice running without music. The main reason why I ran without music was because I was too lazy to change the batteries in the mp3. I guess it pays to be lazy some times.
I think I will get up in the morning and run right away, like normal, just without music again. I heard so many things that I normally don't because of the music. I learned that I have a double breath. I exhale twice before I inhale. I step really loud, I never knew that. And, there were so many birds out this morning. It was really quiet outside this morning and I loved that. I don't think I could always run sans music, but ever once in a while, it's nice!
Do you prefer music while you run?
