Just wanted to say - thank you everyone for all your comments, even the negative, rude and personal - but most of all the entertaining and funny! Thanks for those who posted funny comments - I do have a sense of humour and you made me smile....but......
I never realised that I would get so much criticism and negativity from some people on here all over a post about a site I've found re running to music which I thought, perhaps some people might like to try out as the one time I've run to music, and I intend to again, it made the running experience much easier (if that's the word?) and just nicer, and seemed to help performance. I kind of thought I would get a few comments along the lines of "thanks, I'll take a look at that site" or maybe some recommendations/advice re other sites, etc. Surprise, surprise! lol.
Wilkie - "Diane, you can put your comments to me on the forum, you know, not just in a PM:"
No, I will PM you if the facility is available and I want to! I won't tell others what to do with their choices of post and really, to be honest, neither should you.
Wilkie: "What your husband and you do is your business, but you DID raise this issue on a public forum, and that tends to draw comment from other forum users. You won't necessarily like everything they have to say!"
Of course I won't like everything people have to say - whoever does? I don't mind jokey comments which are entertaining or postive criticism. But as for personal and negative criticism,i.e. someone being rude to me when all I've done is posted about a site I've found re beats per minute....well I think there is no call for that. There is no cause to be personal or negatively critical re my post, but I guess it certainly does attract that type of comment from some people, doesn't it.
Sussex Runner - I am saying that what my husband and I do has nothing to do with anyone else in my reply to Wilkie. I'm laughing because I can't believe someone being so negative about something I posted regarding a site I found to find music for beats to the minute music. Please re read my comment and post! I find it bizzarre and strange you can't read posts and comments correctly before posting.
Some funny and quite unexpected responses to my post lol.
Thanks everyone - very entertaining! Although I think some people need to take a chill pill Does make me chuckle though.. I have run ONCE with ear phones in....and I am being terribly rude?! Husband doesn't mind at all and the music wasn't so loud I couldn't chat if I wanted to.
I've been running for about 5 years now - and have run a few 10ks. Just recently my eldest son gave me his old IPod and suggested I listened to music whilst running. Bearing in mind I've never listened to music while running before, and go out approximately 2 times per week for 30-45 minutes per run. I originally did my runs alone, but after a couple of years I've been joined by my husband and our dog! Now I feel safe enough to run with music in my ears - before I thought I wouldn't be so alert to any dangers, but it's been such great fun. Did my first run to music this week and loved it. Today I've been looking on the web for ideas/sites...and came across this site:http://jog.fm/ Gives you a list of suitable beats per minute songs which you can pick and obviously run to after downloading. Love it!!! Certainly a new dimension for me...how easily pleased and sad I am. Just thought I'd share that 'find' (the website) with you
