What do you listen to when you work-out? Any tips for a work-out funk?
Wednesday, February 2, 2011
I was not feeling excited about my work-out today. It was windy with a windchill around 25 degrees, so I quickly nixed the idea of running outside...which meant I was headed to the treadmill. I'm not a huge fan of long runs on the treadmill. I typically use it for intervals only because that seems less boring. I meant to work-out after class, but I kept putting it off and off until it was almost dinner time. Finally, I knew I needed something to get me motivated. I knew just what I needed...new work-out music! I got on Itunes and bought some new music to put on my work-out playlist. I happen to listen to ridiculous pop music from the late 1990s when I work out. I start out every work-out with Britney Spears "Toxic" and end with "Eye of the Tiger." Other favorites include Kelly Clarkson, Alanis, and The Black Eyed Peas. Toady I added *NSYNC ("Bye Bye Bye"), "Sexyback" and "Hey Ya" along with some other stuff that makes me want to move. After that I was definitely ready to hit the treadmill and rock out!
