I've just started running without listening to music. I decided to go early one morning and realised with horror that my phone wasn't charged so, after trying to talk myself out of it, I decided to go anyway.
To be honest, I thought it would make running a bit duller somehow but I'm surprised (and delighted) to discover that I prefer it. I find I tune in to my breathing and can daydream for a bit and discover I've covered a mile or so without really thinking about it.
Previously I found my thoughts were drowned out by the music, but I think I've discovered a new way of running and I love it!
So my question is, has anyone else discovered the joys of running minus the earphones? Or is the thought of running in silence enough to make you stop?
Yikes! That's quite a cut, Matty. I know it must be tough but nothing's broken, which means healing time won't be long. Use the 10 days of frustration and channel it into getting back on track. Best of luck - let us know how it goes.
