Oh, how times have changed. This is my third, count 'em THIRD Music Monday centred around workout music, this coming from a reformed lumpen, inactive complainer. Admittedly, when I did the first one it was all theoretical - I had the music, but not the actual working out.
Not that most of you care, but before I launch into my running playlist that I haven't already covered in previous posts, I'm going to tell you how my running is going. I had a two month break from early December thanks to my mental fragility and overall pervasive shitty feeling, and did not start running again until two and a half weeks ago. Since then, I have been a running machine. Well, for this casual runner anyway. Last Monday I ran my longest distance yet - 8 kilometres. For the non-metric heathens amongst you, that's 5 miles. If I can push myself for an additional 2 kilometres one night, I'll hit my goal of 10K.
Speaking of 10K, I have only gone and registered on an ACTUAL 10K RUN. Help. It takes place in July, which is keenly scheduled right before I leave for the States (aka Location of the Holy Grail Loubs). Now, because the British love charity runs, this one will be for Cancer Research UK. I'm nervous as all hell that I will collapse in a stupid heap of pale flesh and sweat, but I would love it if you could throw a few dollars/pounds in the direction of Cancer Research UK. I've got a widget over in yonder sidebar, so just follow the directions. Yes, non-UK residents can donate, and UK residents, please don't forget to add the whole gift aid thing.
I know it's a big ask in these troubled times and all, but I don't ever ask for anything more than professions of your undying love. Additionally, you have lots and lots of time to save up a few bucks since it doesn't happen until July. I'm going to keep mentioning this over the coming months because of its importance to me, so get used to me yapping in your ear about it.
Ok, you come here for the music, not the boring talk of running. Yawn, I know. As usual, no judgement!
