Should you listen to music while running?

Posted: Yesterday at 19:55

How many times has this subject come up before? Running with headphones is dangerous, you can't hear warnings from officials and can easily become totally involved in what you are listening to. I am sorry for people who are not able to enjoy pure running without artificial help. Forget the technology and just enjoy the race.

What is the most you would pay to enter an event?

How long is a piece of string?

Whether I'd pay over the odds for a race depends entirely on what kind of a race it is and where. Like Pingu I have raced a few Ironman races, yes they are very expensive but if you really want to do one then you accept the costs. An IM involves a huge amount of people, organization and permits so although I thought it expensive I still entered. Our own tri club puts on an Olympic distance tri every year and the headaches involved in getting everything organized are enormous. Wouldn't pay a fraction of the cost of an IM for a half-marathon, 10km or any other road race.

According to news info today, evidence taken from the German Wings co-pilot's flat and his parent's house indicates he had long-term mental problems including severe depression. How could he be flying aircraft if he wasn't completely compos mentis? And no explanation has come up yet for the missing 6 months when he took a break from his flying training.

Good luck for the marathon Redhead, I hear it will be blustery so hopefully you will have a tail wind.

John and I went to early swimming this morning and were dismayed half-way through our training plan to be turfed out of the fast lanes to make way for a large group of kids with their trainer, apparently they are on an Easter training camp and will be in the pool twice a day until next Wednesday. Anyway, we and several others managed to complete our swims, weaving in and out of lanes to pass the breaststroke swimmers. John did 3800m and I finished up with 3600m.

Did my bike workout this afternoon. Going to devour a rather large salad now!

Columba, my dogs are definiitely bi-lingual - John and I use English at home and outside we speak German. We often have to actually spell out words like dinner and car. Dog Club is "Hunde Platz" in German so we just say HP or Charlie starts running round the house making excited noises.

Exhausted - my hubby says to drill a small hole in the beading with a drill bit slightly thinner than your nail, then put the nail in and the wood won't crack.

Yes, our dogs understand both English and German. I saw an episode of "one man and his dog" sheepdog trials where one man competing in the pairs had trained one dog in English and the other in Welsh. Both dogs answered only to the language they had been trained in. Impressive work by both.

My tri training plan has 40 mins moderate cycling plus 10 mins "comfortably hard|" (whatever that is) for today. Tomorrow is a swim with a main set of 3 x 300m at race pace followed by a 7km run with 4 x 10 seconds hill sprints.

Off to gym class now.
