Two by Two

July 31st, 2009

IMG_0119.jpgJust nipped out and did run number two of week number two. The same run as last time, only vastly easier on a non-full stomach!

Luckily I didn’t have hammering rain to put me off this evening, so getting out there was easy. It was raining a little bit (hey, Bristol’s Harbour Festival starts today, and rain’s fast becoming a tradition) but nothing serious.

This made for fewer puddles, which was handy. I’m going to have to find an alternative route at some point, something with a pavement that actually drains after rain. And some lighting, as I don’t want to be running in the dark later on in the year!

Today’s music wasn’t so hot; I started off a Genius playlist from a song that’s less bouncy than usual, and some not-so-hot number cycled through because of that. Not that there’s anything fundamentally wrong with The Eel’s Susan’s House; it’s a great song, but it’s not exactly the cheery or energetic fodder that works to get my legs pumping 🙂 At least I got some PJ Harvey (This is Love), and the Clash’s White Riot definitely helped me through the home stretch!

Anyway. Next run on Sunday, and apparently there might be some better weather by then…

    Looks like this is turning into a habit! ^_^

    I tend to use music for energy anyway, and have a intrinsic hatred of ballads or anything slow. I love the way you can pick and choose tracks now instead of having to buy the whole album.

    I bought a chillout album recently (think The Orb’s “Little Fluffy Clouds”) but that’s about it. Otherwise it’s dance/electro all the way, mainly instrumental stuff and the occasional decent remix of something. Loving a remix of “Enjoy the Silence” at the moment… A song I enjoy for lots of reasons.

    Good luck for tomorrow!
