I have several Apple Products, including and iPhone and an iPad.
I also have an ipod shuffle that I occasionally use for running, mostly on the treadmill.
But I help Apple’s stock because of my unfortunate habit of leaving it in a pocket of my running shorts and putting it through the washing machine. The newest unit I bought only made it two weeks before going through the laundry. I tried plugging it in the computer in hopes it would still work and had luck transferring a file.
One of the things I’m focusing on with my running is to increase my cadence to improve my running efficiency. To help with this I decided to download a running podcast with a beat of 184. I turned it on and went about completing my workout on the treadmill.
I got to the end of the run and though to myself, “hey this podcast was only 45 minutes long but I don’t think I ever got to the end”. I listened closer and realized the iPod shuffle had been playing the same 10 seconds over and over for the last hour and ten minutes and I never noticed.
I guess that’s one reason people like techno music, it can help you just zone out for a while.
