I am getting ready for my 5K on Saturday. I've chosen my clothes, washed my running socks, trimmed my toe nails, checked my glasses, etc. I ran Tuesday and took a long walk today. Plan a short elliptical session tomorrow. I still have just a touch of lower back discomfort and a foot with an occasional muscle spasm. I'm not afraid to run the 5K, though. My training runs have gone well and if I have discomfort, I'll just go slower. It's great to place in a race, but more important to be healthy. Don't want to put too much pressure on myself. So, I was feeling pretty prepared when suddenly an unanticipated challenge occurred.
I usually run with my MP3 player playing workout tunes. I was wanting to create a playlist with a really, really joyfilled first song because I'm trying to start out thinking more positively. Unfortunately something happened to my MP3 player and all my content disappeared. Maybe it was my magnetic name tag that I inadvertantly put near the MP3 player in my purse. I re-synced my player, but wow did I get a mess. Pictures came in where the music should be so I have hundreds of "unknown" listings in the music. Some of the albums are now split up with the songs in different locations. A lot of the music no longer has titles listed, so I'm having trouble finding my music. I'm sure I can find something to run to. I'll keep trying to create what I want. We'll see.
