I did the UNTHINKABLE (Read 90 times)

    I listened to music while running at lunch, its ok though it was all road running I would never do such a thing on the trails. I like to listen to the cadence of my feet and looking at plants and critters.

      I never listen to music on long runs or trail runs, but lately I've been listening to music and/or podcasts on shorter weekday road runs. I really enjoy the Trail Runner Nation podcasts (on my road runs, haha.) Lots of really good information, and I wouldn't necessarily have time to listen to them otherwise.

        I think the world just ended.

         

        I have come to terms that I am shameless ipod runner.  I love music and running.

          You should be shunned from the community

            Well, I guess on the roads is OK.  At least you won't hear the screeching of tires before the car slams into you. Big grin

              There was at least a disturbance in the force Mandy, stars may have been aligned.

                It's OK if you did it....if you enjoyed it now we have a problem.   I do it and enjoy it!

                I need to sign up for a race..


                Uh oh... now what?

                  My curiosity is aroused.  This "cadence" thing--how does go about reaching that level.

                   

                  I do stumble okay; shuffle pretty well; trip and almost catch myself in a manner most grand,

                  but,

                  there is no cadence that my feet will share, not even with each other.

                    Occasional Runner

                      I run with music almost always. I do what I want and nobody can stop me.

                      7/27- Virtigo Night Run 41M

                      8/2- Jupiter Peak

                      8/9- El Vaquero Loco 50k

                      8/16- Leadville 100

                      9/5- Wasatch 100

                        music can be nice at times. I generally take my Ipod nano wherever i run (mainly for tracking with nike plus). I know how to take the headphones out of my ears if I need to hear something else.

                          As an aside, I think music is great and enjoyable when running, except when one relies on it to be able to run. Some people ask me "how can you run without music?! I could NEVER run without music!" Most of these people are non-runners or casual/short distance runners. I'm not judging since I love running with music, but what happens when your iPod dies out there? I would hope that people wouldn't stop running half way through a run or a race just because their iPod died. Obvious exaggeration, but I'm just saying, it's not good to become dependent on it. I definitely don't think that's the case of most of us on this forum, anyway, since we push through other conditions besides "no music."

                            Sometimes in longer races, I use music as a reward.  e.g. Get through the first 30 miles and then you can listen to your ipod for a while.

                             

                            And I have to admit, I was pretty upset around mile 57 when my ipod died toward the end of a 100K.  I really could have used that boost at the time, but I eventually made it.

                              Sorry, I was joking about cadence.  I hear myself okay, just seldom get to

                              run rhythmically, in cadence, or anything that indicates conquering a skill.

                                Amazing how much better I think I run when I can't hear myself breathing!

                                 

                                Recovery runs are better with music.

                                Looking for a reason to run...
