73 deg 92% humidity @ start and 80 deg and 77% humidity @Finish. Wanted to get a long run in so I set out to my normal 15 mile route. I knew this was going to be a problem as I stepped out my door around 7:15 and it was warm and muggy. Then I get to the parking lot and my iPod is dead. Part of running is overcoming the mental challenges, I know that no music isn't a huge deal for many of you but it is for me. So I didn't want to spend to much time thinking about it and headed down the path. Nice mix of crushed gravel path, roads, and paved bike path. Also, a little bit of elevation change to stir things up. Wanted to get 15 miles in between 7:44-8:44/mi pace. Legs felt good and settled in to a pretty steady pace. Grabbed water at 5 and 10 miles, no fuel. Splits were:8:21, 8:11, 8:07, 8:13, 8:15, 8:22, 8:27, 7:51, 8:14, 8:01, 8:16, 8:18, 8:10, 8:10, 7:51. Off to soak in the tub! Have a great Sunday!

    Nice long run ! i used to do my 12 milers with music, and thought Id never be able to do without. Now I never run with music, but it was really hard to get used to. Great job sticking with it and overcoming that obstacle.

    I haven't run with music in close to two years. Running is the only time when it's just me and my thoughts. Music clouds the experience and can sometimes mess up my pacing...just my 2 cents. Oh...and no fuel? Why not?

    I get the dead-iPod sweats, too. No socks? K. No iPod and I begin doing the mental math to see if I can make it home to get it & still fit my run in! I do run without it sometimes though because many races won't allow them at all (trail runs & tris). But 15 miles alone AND without tunes? Wow, that's a big hurtle you overcame! Really great run!

    So true that many (most?) running challenges are mental. Dead ipods can completely throw me for a loop, esp on a long run. Great job overcoming and fabulous splits!

    Great run! I always run with music if I have to run on the TM but on my long runs with my group I don't miss it because I'm busy chatting with the other runners. Seems like you do a lot of solo miles so I totally get how music is a nice addition! :)
