C25K: Week 4, Day 2

Well, let's just say that today was interesting.

To start, I'll admit that I was definitely feeling my pms symptoms today making the moments prior to my workout a little emotional roller coaster. lol Oh the joys of being a woman!

I was really upset about the music included in the podcast I had downloaded for this week, and wasn't too keen on the other selections out there, so after doing some brief research, i decided that I would try and make my own before my run. I chose enough songs to fill the half hour, downloaded the software and plugged in my ipod. I didn't realize until tonight that you can't take the songs from your ipod and put them into itunes! Meaning i had no way to get my songs into the special program to create my own podcast. After doing some googling, i found a way to get around this. It took like 20 minutes to download the 600+ tracks from my ipod onto my mother's computer, making me already 20+ minutes late to starting my workout. I was already pretty annoyed with the situation, and to make matters worse, itunes wouldn't let me import the songs after I had wasted all that time downloading them! Oh i was fuming! Finally I just made a new playlist on my ipod with the songs I had chosen, wrote down what I needed to do for the workout and headed downstairs to the treadmill. i would have my own music, but... i would have to spend my workout watching the clock.

I wasn't in the best mood by the time my feet hit the treadmill, however it was very easy to shake those bad feelings once my workout started to music that I love. it really wasn't that bad, and running to killer music made it seem easier and more fun! So all in all, my worries and woes were for nothing because in the end, my workout was great.

Today's stats:
Distance: 2.42 miles (3.89km)
