Today's #FitnessHacks is another tip I have used.
While I don't wear an iPod often, I use to be in a quandary on what ear plug when into what ear. Have you tried to see the L or R on the plugs?
I decided to make it obvious. I put a piece of black tape on the L(left) ear plug (you can do the R(right), it doesn't matter). This was such a big hit with my former running group, I showed up one day and others had done the same.
- Friends used stickers
- Other friends have marked their one plug with nail polish
This came in handy when I was running LAM 2014. I had my headset tucked into my sports bra. But, when I pulled it out around Mile 12, it was twisted. I could easily tell what one was L and what one was R without breaking a stride.
Here is a picture of my iPod with black tape:
Cost: I say "free", you can use anything you have around your house.
Time: 10 seconds?
Let me know if you use this and how you mark your iPod. I would love to see your creativity!
Do you have a great #FitnessHack? Please email to me and if I print your tip my blog, I will mention you & your website (if applicable)
