Today my original plan was to run 3 miles. I mean a super easy 3 miles. I couldn’t sleep well last night and this morning I was really tired. I even couldn’t get up to drive my husband to the CTA station. So my poor husband needed to drive to work. I kept sleeping. My corgis joined with me. That’s how my morning went.
So that’s why I intended to have a minimum mileage run day. But once I went to the gym and pressed the start button on a treadmill, running felt so easy. It felt so great. And I was lost in the music. I think it’s funny because the songs I listened to today were by Duran Duran, haha. I wasn’t/am not a fan of them but one day when I looked through my CDs, I put their songs on my iPod for the gym. Their songs have similar bpm and they made my running quite automatic. Duran Duran was “DoRun DoRun” for me today. I forgot how long I’ve been running. When I was back to reality, my mileage was passing 6 miles. My mileage for today was 6.21 miles. I felt much better after the run. But tomorrow, I will run less. I promise.
The other day I bought 2 headbands at Dick’s. They are just plain white headbands. There are different colored ones but I didn’t want to pay more than double just because they have brand logos on them. My headbands look boring but who cares. I don’t go to the gym for a fashion show. Today I used one of them. It worked fine. It didn’t slip and helped to block the sweat from going into my ears. But when I saw myself in the mirror, that just cracked me up. I did look so dorky 😀
Duran Duran and a white wide headband.. Welcome back 80’s!!
