Day 59 - New iPod and running
My iPod has been having issues for a few weeks. It will not sync with the computer. It will play the songs that are on there, I just can't add or remove anything. Since this issue came about the same time that tax refunds come, David gave the go ahead on a new iPod. So today I went to Costco and bought a 120 GB iPod. The funny thing is that I spent $100 less than I did on my old iPod and I get four times the capacity. I went through and deleted things I don't want on the new iPod. A lot of kids stuff came off. It is all on the old iPod forever, so it is not really gone. Here is a picture of the new iPod getting synced.
I took a ballet class today. Instead of riding my bike like usual, I decided to run to the studio. It is a bit over three miles each way. The one thing about the Saturday morning class is that the teacher is intense. She pushes the students hard. I was still able to run about a mile and a half home, then I walked the rest. I did encounter one problem. I ran into a part of the sidewalk that is elevated from a tree root. I did not see it and tripped and fell. I now understand what happens when those Olympic runners wipe out. When standing or walking I can usually find balance when I trip or something. I think that since we are moving so fast while running that the brain is not able to work everything out. I have a bruise on my knee, but like those Olympic runners, I got up and continued running.
Here is a layout
