Not Saying I’m Going to Jinx Myself . . .

But I’m totally going to jinx myself by posting this.

I started running again on 8/1. I know, I know. That’s not a big deal. But what is a big deal – to me – is that on Saturday night, I did it even though I didn’t want to. I got home really late & all I wanted to do was pull out my knitting & watch more Friday Night Lights. [No, I have not finished LOST. I’m protesting because what on earth is actually going on on that show anyway?]

But I got on the treadmill & I toughed it out.  Which also made me realize something.

I have serious music ADD. I can set a station on Pandora & think I’m going to be fine with it, but then I get cranky with the songs & I don’t want to listen to them any more, so I switch stations. I’ve tried putting all of my stations on shuffle, but I have a station I listen to two days a year [Christmas music should only be played on Christmas Eve & Day & I don’t care if that makes me a Grinch] & without fail, I get more Christmas songs than anything else. So I switch stations, only to get frustrated with the first song played. And the second. I might like the third, but not enough to run for a minute & a half to it. So I switch again. Honestly, I think I need to keep track of how many times I switch stations during a run. The people who write the algorithms for Pandora probably think I’m certifiable, which could also be totally based on the variety of my stations.

Obviously, I have problems.

I know this could probably be solved by using something like Spotify, buuuutttt I’m very much against paying for something just to use the mobile version of it. I don’t pay for the mobile app subscription to Sirius, so why would I pay for this?

What is your favorite music to listen to when you’re working out?
