Running with or without music? I bet most of you would answer that you prefer running with music. The beat keeps us going and helps us with the pace, doesn’t it? There is nothing wrong with getting more motivated by listening to your favourite artists.
Let me tell you a little secret. I also love running with music these days. I am not ashamed to say that some of my long super hard runs that I have recently done while training for my latest marathon, the Malaga Marathon, would not be the same without a little boost of Jay-Z, Beyonce or Drake, just a few of my favourite artists.
My training for the marathon was going so well until about 2.5 weeks ago when I had to fight some nasty cold and was bound to bed for a week. Then another week to completely get rid of some chest infection.
That’s not ideal when you are training and are supposed to be peaking. Luckily I managed to squeeze a few 30 and 32 km before then, but I still wanted to do my last long run before tapering for the marathon.
BackBeat Fit 3100 Wireless Headphones
I have previously worked with Plantronics and was super excited about being sent their latest BackBeat Fit 3100 true wireless headphones. By the way, these have just been awarded the CES 2019 INNOVATION HONOREE AWARD! How could I resist running my last long run with these?
I set these up and tested them on a short run before of course as I couldn’t risk not having any music. And what did I think of these?
soft, flexible, secure & comfortable
The headphones arrived in a tiny smooth case, and looked so cool! I love the fact you can power them inside this case. How clever!
They were easy to put in my ears and stayed for the whole of 30km! No fiddling about and I really enjoyed being more aware of the surroundings than with many previously tested earbud headphones.
