Just remembered I have software that can significantly boost decibel levels of audio files. I was having trouble trying to hear podcasts through my mp3 player while out running as they were already pretty quiet, but they became almost imperceptible against the backdrop of traffic. Running is one of the best times to multitask since you don’t have to think too much about it, so I’m glad I don’t have to waste that 40-min block of my daily routine! :D2 weeks ago

Today, I practised “Orient Blue” on guitar while doing a feet strengthening exercise, at the same time as basic map study as well. xD I don’t want to undermine guitar practice quality, but Orient Blue is something I already have down pretty good; now it’s just a matter of solidifying it. It also helps with my goal of becoming better at not having to watch the hands while playing guitar.15 months ago

-Listening to news or new music while working on current mini project or when exercising.
-Listening to audio books or radio news while out running.15 months ago
Was recently talking to a friend about listening to music while running. He said he usually listens to music at a relatively loud volume while going running, but I expressed my reluctance. I have always been more against than for listening to music while out and about in public as I like to be fully aware of my environment.
However, I may decide to multitask my goals by doing ear training during running. It won’t be a constant barrage of sound as I’ll be listening to single notes and chords for my ear training, and it shouldn’t compromise hearing much of what’s happening in my environment if it’s not too loud.17 months ago
