Todd: Now, Shona, you said that you jog.
Shona: Yeah, I do.
Todd: I'm a jogger too.
Shona: Oh, are you? Fantastic. How often do you do it?
Todd: Well, actually try to go every day.
Shona: Oh, OK. How long for?
Todd: Between thirty minutes and an hour, depending on the day. And you?
Shona: It depends on the day as well. Today it was only like half an hour, but I try to get out for an hour, maybe like four or five times a week, but I used to be like a lot fitter and I just realized today that I'm not as fit as I used to be, so I'm probably gonna pump it up a little bit and do a little bit more, but yeah.
Todd: So you said you're not fit. What happened? Did you stop running?
Shona: Yeah, I guess like I've not been doing as much as I used to recently cause I used to do more than just jogging. I went to the gym as well. I did yoga. You know it was like more of a varied workout, but when you just stick to like one exercise alone, like, it tends to kind of make your fitness, like, drop a little bit if you are used to doing like a lot more sports.
Shona: So I need to vary it a little more.
Todd: Well, actually, where do you run? Do you run on the river?
Shona: Yeah, I run down the river. Just along it, to the right-hand side. Just as far as, like fifteen or twenty minutes, and then back.
Todd: Actually, there's a really nice park near here that has a really nice running trail.
Shona: Oh, really.
Todd: That I highly recommend. Yeah. But you got to take the train, and it's, you know, a little... it's four stops. You have to pay a little money, but it's worth it.
Shona: Oh, wow. Cool. You'll have to tell me where it is.
Todd: Sure. I can draw you a map.
Shona: Oh, OK, cool.
Todd: How about, when you run, do you have an ipod? Do you listen to music?
Shona: Yeah. Of course, I take my MP3 players, and it's like, I could not, like, jog without music. On ocassion, I've went out the door, like to go for a jog, and I've just like, I've not been able to. Like I can't. I need music. Otherwise it's just so boring, and to be honest, you know, like it depends if it's a scenic route, like I can cope without music, like I enjoy listening to the birds or whatever, like it's beautiful or what, but if it's like, in the city, or you know, like... I need my music.
Todd: Oh, I totally agree. I don't know what I would do without my ipod. - Um, what kind of music to you listen to when you jog?
Shona: When I jog actually, it's different music than I listen to normally cause I like with a heavy beat, so I listen to dance music, or some kind of sixties music or something with lots of melody, and I tend to like longer songs as well because it keeps me going longer. If it's shorter songs then it stops. It keeps stopping. I seem to like lose my pace or something, so I like kind of steady, long beats.
Todd: Oh, cool, well I'll be sure to get that map to you. You definitely should go jogging in that park. Cool.
Shona: What music do you listen to when you go jogging?
Todd: Actually, I listen to also music I normally don't listen to. I listen to more hip-hop. I'm older, you know, I'm 37, but it definitely keeps me going when I run.
Shona: Yeah, it's to do with the beat, yeah.
Todd: Right, right. especially when I start. Like I need a couple of good songs to keep me going.
Shona: Totally, so, not yeah.
