1 week completed! 24 days to go

One of the things that this janathon challenge has brought home to me is how much I am always rushing ahead to the next thing. Even before todays run was over I was planning where to go tomorrow and fretting about how I was going to manage on Monday. Then I realised I was making it more of a chore than it needs to be. It is actually really pleasant to be out in the park jogging along listening to my music. And that brings me to another point - I simply must sort out my playlists. I ran last week listening to all the music/songs I am teaching the kids at school. If I put my iphone on shuffle I end up with endless recorder pieces. Anyone got any good suggestions for music to run to? I did once once try running whilst listening to The Archers but it made me run even slower than ever.

Today I managed 20 minutes running.

I am thrilled with these gloves Andrew got me - warm fingers and I can fast forward the tracks!

  1. Well done! I have some music suggestions but this is down to personal choice. If you are not in a rush, I recommend Joan As Policewoman, I Run for Love, nice to warm up to, then You've Got the Love (Florence and the Machine), almost anything from Basement Jaxx, but Red Alert is great for picking up the pace, Groove is in the Heart (Deee-Lite), Stronger (Kanye West)...
