The past few weeks I've been having more issues with my iPod. She's been sad. She give's me the corrupt files message each and every day. I toggle the hold, press the menu and select and wipe it out, all is fine, the I receive more sad messages the following day. Luckily, I bought Tyler a Nano for his birthday so he has been allowing me to use his during treadmill, lifting and road running. I don't need it while running trail with Topaz.
Yesterday I headed out for 22 miles of hilly road. I brought along Ty's Nano. It's so small, so light, so nice. I have the first U2 model. I love it, but it's been sad, it's big, it's heavy. Sometimes during 50 mile runs it irritates me because of her weight.
I brought along some money so I could purchase bottled water along the way, I brought a baggie of HEED, some Cliff Blocks, some gels and a few Cliff Bars. This run is getting a bit less strenuous. It's my toughest workout, very hilly, and well, it's pavement. I don't have a good grassy hill to do repeats on so am finding the next best thing. Relentless hills over and over and over again. I've completed three of these workouts in the past 4 weeks and they are getting faster, but still painful. Yesterday I wasn't getting up and out of my car too swiftly post run.
I arrived home, showered, gathered the boys and went off to church. Agh, trying to get out of my chair after sitting for 75 minutes was tough! Dropped Tyler off at home, Troy off at a birthday party and went to the Apple Store. Poor sick iPod. Her hard drive crashed. Luckily I have "Apple Care" and received an Apple Card for $305 to replace her.
Today I ordered the 8 G Nano. I'm sure I'll like it as much as my other model. I should have it all loaded up and ready to run by the Snowshoe Marathon on Saturday. Or the No Snowshoe Marathon. I think there is only 3" of snow in Duluth. Either way, it will be a good time.
