Librivox reading

[Today’s run: 6 miles with Boardtown Runners]

My running has not been going well the last couple of weeks.  I think my last good day was a week ago Tuesday when I ran 12 220 sprints on the road in front of our house.  I think somehow that messed up my timing or something.  Anyway, I made it to the first water stop in good form then went back to start in less good form.  But I made it and enjoyed the rest of the day.

I have finished  my two chapter readings for Librivox.  I volunteered for two sections of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. by Washington Irving.  I read essays about “The Art of Book-Making” and “The Angler”. I think I got better as it went along.  And I was able to get my computer and microphone set up in a comfortable way eventually.  It really helped once I figured out I should not be sitting all hunched up in this chair while reading (like I do while typing).

The software for recording is free.  So if you have a computer and can get a microphone the rest is easy.

When recording, I make a lot of mistakes.  So I just back up a bit and start again.  Then I use the software to edit out the bloopers.
