dislike is too mild a word


At first glance, this may seem like an innocuous image. Everyone likes listening to music, right? iPods are a good thing!

Well, appearances can be decieving. The subject of this photo is not the iPod itself, but the headphones. Namely, the fact that my ears were sweating so much while I ran today that they fell out several times. (How does the inside of your ears even sweat? Or, a better question: WHY?)

Instead of beautiful music, the final minutes of my run were accompanied by squelching noises (TMI?) as I tried frantically to put the silly things back in.  IT DIDN'T WORK. (Squelching ears: Totally unmotivating. Although I do quite like the word 'squelch'. It should be used more often.)

Does this kind of thing happen when you work out? Any other problems?

  4. Just run without headphones. Ha, I know, that's probably a funny joke to you. But seriously, being a purist isn't so bad. You might grow to like it. ;) I don't run with headphones...it helps me focus. Your breathing might even get better (not so much squelching?) Lol. Keep running though! *fist bump* *thumbs up*

  5. Oh, the headphones that come with the iPod are so uncomfortable. In college I listed to my iPod constantly and I would get little irritated bumps in my ear from the headphones (yuck, I know). I have since ordered a pair of Skullcandy earbuds, and I'm never going back!
