Sound vs Silence

Posted: 05/06/2008 at 19:07

Some of my running buds and I were discussing this - the horrified looks from some purists who couldnt imagine piped music as they trotted round a course was highly entertaining.  I have always run with music when Im alone and when I race.  I actually choose and modify playlists to improve my performance.  Killer hill coming up?  Gimme some AC/DC!   And running is my excuse for the dodgy dance tunes on my MP3 player. Put your hands up, anyone???  When I run with my club or my friends I leave the music at home, companionship and encouragement to hammer out one more mile is as motivational as "Gonna Fly Now".  Lol.  So, the moral of the story?  What ever works for ya baby.  As long as it aint ilegal or causes any one else problems, anything goes!  As for the health and safety aspect?  Just be a bit more aware of your surroundings!  I was gobsmacked to hear NY (and others apparently) are now banning personal music players!  Good grief.  If anyone wants me I'llbe at a experimental government facility having a micro-MP5 player emplanted in my head.

BlokeStuff werevery kind and whenI huffed about the excess shipping to Northern Ireland, which I hadnt expected, they apologised and refunded the excess.  First time THATS happened and I shop online all the time.  So, I hope that if I ever have probs with my Garmin 205 (fingers crossed) BlokeStuff will help me out!

Yay! First 10k in Banbridge :-) Quite a few hills. Did it in 58mins! And NO bruises on my knees yet! Maybe the bruises were an anomaly? Will keep a close eye. Thanks to y'all for the advice!

On inside and outside of knees. Just wee bruises they do seem to be right on the edge of the knee cap - I dont know if it's possible to be bruised from the inside out! Tis very odd.

I have just recently upped my mileage and training from a beginner level to intermediate. I am carrying a bit of extra weight and I have noticed a few small bruises around both knee caps = like directly on the edge of the caps. I dont recall knocking them? Has anyone ever had bruises appear simply from the impact of runnin???
