It took one run to figure out I needed music.
I started out listening to what I always do, however, it didn't take long to figure out that even though I couldn't breathe I still wanted to sing along. Like, out loud. Not only is my singing not made for public consumption, but when you're running, breathing is kinda important...I don't need to explain why it's not a good idea to sing when you're new to running, right?
So, I switched genres and was soon running to guys singing about women bending over and touching their toes on the dance floor, getting more ass than a toilet seat, and drinkin' Hennessy. It totally worked for me. They had a good running beat, I didn't know the words, and I was entertained.
I've started singing along...
Not only that, but...
It kinda makes me want to dance.
We're getting into some serious territory here.
Let me be clear. This is what I feel like doing...
Which would totally work, if my dancing wasn't worse than my singing!
Seriously, picture this young lady as a 33 year old woman, and you have me...
Well, okay my dancing isn't too bad after I've had a few drinks, but I'd hate to think about what would happen if I tried to dance while running after drinking. *shutters*
But, sometimes you just gotta do a little dance, you know?! So the other day I couldn't help myself and gave it a go (not at the gym!!).
I almost fell.
Needless to say, I need to find some new music.
I'm thinking Classical.
