Made it through the second day, not as painful as day one, and I found myself actually wishing for a little more of a challenge. It was really nice to work through the soreness, but I fear that tomorrow will be much worse than yesterday. I got in 1.58 mile, which may not seem like much, but the number should steadily climb.
A little note on the app: I think that I found the fix for the alerting issue. There was a setting that said “allow pausing music” I set it to on today and viola! – the girl’s voice is now surrounded by a nice brief pause. I can hear her fine, no problems.
