AC/DC and a shopping cart

Today’s 40 easy minutes were a complete change to my usual routine. Change is good though!

I’m frequently reminded by Paula that there is other music in the world than my standard running playlist, which I am getting more sick off. I’m also trying to get a higher cadence, so this is a perfect match. Find fast music = run faster? Well the theory sounds good and worth a test. I don’t have patience to click songs and sort them before I run, so I just searched Spotify for “AC/DC”, Paula’s last music post I remembered!

I’m happy to report it worked for the first 5 minutes lol! Then I must have hit the park and lost it … I can’t remember music or anything else … the cadence on my Garmin is as low as ever after the first 5 minutes. I do remember however that I had promised Benjamin to try and capture a photo of the shopping cart I had spotted on yesterday’s run. He is always posting cool findings from his runs, if you don’t know his blog, check it out!

Anyhow here it is:


Other than that, I was happy that the sun came out a little bit and the rain seems to be over. I am hoping that I can run on the beach and then the hills again soon, the tide will be fitting into that nicely. Then there is my planned adventure for the weekend, where I want to go and find the chimney that is connected to the hidden cave.

Maybe increasing cadence works similar to increasing duration? I just try and get a little bit quicker each week. Main key seems to be smaller steps or am I mislead here?

  1. Hi, Fab blog! I have just set up mine, but still in the very early stages – a few months old. Just making efforts to link in with fellow bloggers to improve our followers and get the word out there for us both. I would appreciate you having a peek at my blog, as I have published several posts. Feel free to like, comment, follow or just take a peek. Thank you 🙂


    1. Thanks so much! I checked out your blog and it looks great. What are your topics and plans? As I am plant-based I usually don’t follow, if it’s mostly topics around animal based products … However others here might be interested, so feel free to let us know more!


  2. For me, cadence is key! I actually take short steps/strides because I have sciatica and a tight hip flexor. My past running coaches and my past physical therapist instructed me to take shorter strides for runs longer than 6 miles (that’s usually when my sciatica starts acting up) and it helps a ton. It also helps me pace myself better and not burn out quicker.


    1. I tried doing shorter steps today … my garmin still shows 0.73 for stride length … same than before. Maybe the watch isn’t accurate or maybe my feet are too big for small steps lol.
      I’ll try this again tomorrow!


  3. Hahahaha, so awesome!! Thank you! I have no idea on how to work on cadence yet, so when you’ve got it figured out, I’ll follow your lead!!

    Great shopping cart photo!! I think Benjamin is going to have us all looking for trolleys now, lol!! 😀
