iPods can survive the washing machine
Yesterday I ran an easy 8 miles with a big steak on my shirt. Good think I couldn't see it as I was running or I think it would have made me even hungrier than I was when I got home.
After my run, I grabbed the kids and another older cousin and we headed out for a hike since it was a day off from school day. The kids had a great time running through the hills exploring and playing hide and seek. My daughter ended up sleeping away the rest of the afternoon. She needed it!
In other news I managed to wash throw my iPod in the washing machine, I remembered that it had been in the pocket of my Handful bra too late, I dug all the clothes out and there it was sitting in the bottom all sad and wet.
I put it in a bowl of kitty litter (clean kitty litter) for 12 hours and then put it on a heat vent for 24 hours. and works great! so relieved, those toys aren't very cheap!
After the run and the hike yesterday I still managed to fit in ZWOW 59 and then a HIIT workout with my husband that left us both wiped. Lucky for me today is a REST day, except I do have to go to work..boo.
I also discovered you can sign up to recieve a Spartan WOD on the Spartan Race website. So far I haven't done any of them. Todays looks pretty tough. Maybe tomorrow..
How was your Monday? ever washed your iPod?

I've never washed my ipod, but my phone went through the wash once. It didn't survive.ReplyDelete
How warm is it there that you can run in a tank???
I dropped my iPhone in the toilet a few months back, and turns out, rice works the same as kitty litter :) Although, I'm still waiting for the day when it just quits working because I shorted something out!ReplyDelete
I get spartan wod emails and I always delete them lol... I don't even open them. Terrible, I know, but really they are terrifying lol.ReplyDelete
Yikes about your Ipod, glad that it still works! Never heard of using kitty litter before, but I have seen rice used. My Monday was kind of craptastic, but I feel like that is the norm for me at the beginning of the week. At least I will end it on vacation mode for 5 days. :-)ReplyDelete
My wife washed her iPod... ya, no amount of rice, kitty litter or heat could bring that sucker back from the dead. Glad your's was saved.ReplyDelete
I like to add components of the Spartan WOD to whatever I'm doing that day. Today, I'll add some lunges between our group speed work.ReplyDelete
Never washed an iPod (yet).
I still love that beef jersey!
My iPod has survived many rain storms, when I used to not hide it under my running skirt. I have a "time out" bag of rice I keep around just in case I mess up again. Congrats on saving yours! It doesn't always workout.ReplyDelete
Oh, and those Spartan WODs-- wow, no way.
You are amazing! I can not believe you did all of that in one day. How do you find the time?ReplyDelete
Never washed my ipod, I would be devastated if I did though and it didn't work. I will remember your tricks though, heaven forbid I do wash it :)
I once washed my cell phone. It didnt end well.ReplyDelete
50 burpees?!! I only did 10 yesterday and I had to break it into 2 sets of 5! lol...ReplyDelete
So glad your ipod made it! That would've been a sad day if you couldn't have revived it!! I've never had that happen with electronics (knock on wood), but i have done it with money, a pen, and a magnet that ended up stretching out the shirt it was on... whoops!
I dropped my cell phone in the pool during a swimming lesson, & it pretty much came back to life, although the camera wasn't very good after that. So glad your iPod survived!ReplyDelete
Wow I'm impressed that your iPOD survived, cool!ReplyDelete
Oh, burpees! I did 120 in a class once and thought it was the end of the world. I might have to check out those Spartan workouts.ReplyDelete
Me and burpees do not get along..I almost pass out every time I try do them from being light headed. I need to find a site so I can modify my strength workouts throughout the week. Any suggestions?ReplyDelete
Bummer about your iPod but glad you gotReplyDelete
It working again!
you are extremely lucky that your ipod is back up and running again. What kind of handful bra do you use that yours has a pocket?? I have to be in the mood for burpees. One of the blogs I followed- petite athleat, did 1 mile, 4 laps, around the track of straight up burpees last year... think it took her 2 hours or something. I'm pretty sure I will NEVER be in the mood for that.ReplyDelete
Good ole kitty litter!!! That would really bite the big one! Burpees are so killer...I was just reading Lisa's comment above....1 mile of burpees. That is just crazy...or amazing!ReplyDelete
Good job on savings the iPod! At least it is clean now. I am glad that it is working because Apple stuff is far from cheap!ReplyDelete
I went swimming with an iphone once. I left it in rice for a week, but sadly it didn't come back to life :( Excited to hear that yours did survive and maybe (hopefully there will never be a next time) I'll try kitty litter instead.ReplyDelete
Yowzers! So glad your i-pod turned out okay. One more reason I would hand wash my Handfuls! :)ReplyDelete
I've washed a few ipods..one in a top loader that did not make it, and another in my front loader that did survive. My Monday sucked! It was back to school after spring break for me :-/ReplyDelete
I dropped my phone in the stool before, and then put it in a bowl of rice for two days. It came back completely except for the #7 or something like that, so I could still call almost everyone.ReplyDelete
More pics of running jerseys with steaks please, except don't ever run in front of me in a race with that thing on. If I'm delirious enough I might chase you with some A1 and a knife.
Wow, good to know! I dropped my phone in a sewer once and Eric went in and got it but it didn't survive. Your day of hiking sounds great!ReplyDelete
Love how your daughter ran out to meet you after your run! Homecomings are the best :) .ReplyDelete
Never washed my Ipod....but I did wash a cell phone once. We had a burial service immediately following.ReplyDelete
It's still FREEZING here. Snow on the ground. I'm OVER winter. By the time it ends, winter will be back again.
I cant' believe your iPod is still working! I have heard about putting them in rice, but never kitty litter; that was a great idea!ReplyDelete
