No time for Michael Buble.

Okay, I REALLY FREACKING need to put some order in my Ipod. I have been delaying that in… well, forever? but last night, it was the worst.
I was out doing my interval training run, a trainign helping you build up your endurance at higher speed. Last night, my average speed was around 8.7 km/h but for 1 kilometer x 3 times, I had to speed up around 11.5 km/h. Excellent way to take you out of your comfort zone.
When I run alone, music helps me a lot. A song is about 3 minutes that I had ran about 500 meters during that song. Plus the beat helps me to stay motivated through the run.
HOWEVER, last night, I was finishing my last kilometer at 11.7 km/h, and I had about 300 meters to go. An up-beat song from Blink 182 finished and I was hoping for some speedy song to help my maintain my speed for the remaining distance.
What came on?
”It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” by Michael Buble.
It’s not only a Christmas song, it’s a freacking LONG and SLOW Christmas song.
I wear my Ipod in a thingy on my arm so there was no way I was gonna stop or slow down to skip the song. I lived with it.
I tell you, worst motivation music.EVER. LOL
I’m looking for some new songs to build up some running playlist… Any suggestions? What are you listening when you are working out?
I realized I’m pretty much ONLY talking about running these days. As you probably figured it out, I’m really psyched (and also a bit stressed out) about the upcoming half-marathon . I’m probably gonna be talking A LOT about this in the next weeks. Don’t have me too much for that ;-)
The scale went down this morning. At last! After weighing in at 133.2 pounds last friday. I went up to 134.0 saturday morning and 136.0 since Sunday. 136.0 pounds. 136! E-ve-ry morning since Sunday. Honestly, I was getting a bit nervous about the absence of daily fluctuations.
I guess the good decisions and workint out paid out in the end, and this morning I was down to 134.4 pounds. Much better. *relief sigh*
My boyfriend is coming home this afternoon from his 4 days conference in Winnipeg. We are going to celebrate is return with a (healthy) pasta dish tonight, a casserole of rotini with chicken, broccoli and spinach with freshly grated parmesan and a white sauce made of 1% milk. I know he missed pasta dishes a lot since we started dieting and eating healthier… I truly hope he will enjoy it :-)
Happy wednesday everyone!
