…The iPod Shuffle loves to touch?

iPod Touch Shuffle SaleIf you’ve had your eye on a new iPod Touch, then it’s time to pull the trigger, because Amazon is offering up a free 1GB Shuffle with the purchase of a 32GB Touch.

(It’s also a good time to note that the Shuffle is now just $49, with a $69 2GB version in the works. I used a Shuffle a lot for running, and it was the perfect player until I decided to get the Nike+ kit (which only works with the iPod Nano), so if you’re looking for a no hassle, easy to use MP3 player, then the Shuffle definitely gets my recommendation.)

…Running should be spiced up?


Running is great for the body, but if you’re only doing it at one speed, then you’re missing out on not only a better workout, but a less boring one as well.

To combat this problem, Zen Habits has put together 10 Great Workouts To Spice Up Your Running Program. They’ll keep things interesting, make you run faster and stronger, help you run longer, and stop your body from adapting, which all sound good to me.

…Nike helps you run?

Nike Amp+When I go for a run, I like to take along the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit to keep me entertained, so anything that makes running even a little bit easier is fine by me.

To add to their Nike+ line, Nike has created the Nike Amp+ Sport Remote Control, a combination watch and remote from the Nike+ kit.

Featuring a stainless steel buckle, an LED display for time and remote icons, and 50m of water resistance, it’s a great way to look good and keep control over what you listen to while you’re running around.

The second DYH iMix is here, and this one is for the runners. I’m training for the San Francisco marathon this July, so I need something to listen to while the miles pass by. This is a collection of ten songs that will make you want to get out and get going:

  1. Mase – Breathe, Stretch, Shake – The perfect warm up song.
  2. T.I. – Motivation – For when you need some…motivation.
  3. Black Eyed Peas – Let’s Get Retarted – Don’t worry about how you look, just start runnin’ runnin’.
  4. Maroon 5 – Harder To Breathe – Now it’s starting to hurt.
  5. Lenny Kravitz – Where Are We Runnin’? – And how far are we going to go?
  6. Iron Maiden – Run To The Hills – Now you’ve got a destination.
  7. Visioneers – Runnin’ – Just keep going.
  8. DMX – One More Road To Cross – You’re almost there.
  9. Eminem – Lose Yourself – For when you need that last little kick.
  10. Unk – Walk It Out – A great way to cool down.

Now get going!
