Well, maybe to most people the things aren’t that daring. But a) instead of having my playlist set to something reasonably quiet on the outgoing morning bike ride to work, I set it to a mix of my most preferred 700-some songs. Thanks Bob, even if I am out of shape and a little slow, I didn’t get to listen to all of them 😉
But it does mean that instead of music that helps me in my need of keeping from throttling all my power away of the first hills, I got Joan Jett singing “Bad Reputation” up one of them. Oh well…
Speaking of hills, the picture is the height profile of my route – which is due to the other daring thing, tracking myself with Endomondo. There is probably a reason that I am in the competitive world of international sales & marketing, I realised – these kilometer times that the kind and calm lady reads in your ear along the route becomes a challenge, every one of them.
Oh, and I found out that my trip is “only” 18 km – and while I did know there were hills, I was somewhat surprised that I climb 415 m on the way. As this is after all flat Denmark, there is 411 m downhill to compensate, but still.
Happy Towel Day to all you froods out there!
A pick of the music that helped me along:
Careless Whisper – Wham! (it did start quietly…)
Kiss – Tom Jones & Art of Noise
Don’t Bring Me Down – ELO
Loch Lomond (live) – Runrig
Riders on the Storm – The Doors
Bad Reputation – Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Ring My Bell – Anita Ward
Dressed for Success – Roxette
Never Can Say Goodbye – The Communards
Let’s Groove – Earth, Wind & Fire
