I went for my first run in a month today (that's a lie, two months actually...). My iPod died on me back in October and my workout was lost. Although I know it should not be necessary to have music to exercise, for me it's a MUST. Have you ever been working out, and suddenly a song comes on that pumps you up so much that you work even harder than you were before, and you can't believe you are going harder because you didn't think you had it in you? Well, that's how I like to feel ALL THE TIME when I work out - exercising to my fullest. And, the perfect playlist enables me to exercise like a champ. Last year I ran numerous 10k runs and the Scotiabank Half Marathon. This year I will be aiming for a full Marathon in May. Song choices are crucial, and as of late my iTunes are majorly lacking in critical-pump-up tracks.
Do you have any great tunes that pump you up? If so, let me know!
