It's beautiful outside today! Definitely not a typical March 1 Day! It's one of those days that makes you just want to be outside. I know it's not time for Spring yet, but the fever begins. It's one of those days that reminds me of something my middle son will often say. If he sees a wide open field he will look at you and say, "That just makes me want to run." I just love that! As the weather begins to tease us and gets us outside more, it's a great time to load up the Ipod, MP3 player, phone (or whatever device you use) with some new music and get out there! I made a new playlist today I'll be kind enough to share.
I love it when someone comments (in a good way!) after a class about the music. Of course, if they hated the music I need to know that, too. However, just know that if you are in my class you will hear at least ONE Country song! I'm from South Georgia . . . What can I say?
Here's my latest music.
Have any recommendations? We are at 18 PUSH UPS TODAY! CRANK THEM OUT! Are you loving the push ups yet?
Music is the greatest motivator for me while I exercise. Even if I might not be in the right mood or mindset, the music can really get me going. Music is even more important when I am teaching a class and I am constantly playing with new songs and playlists. In the "olden" days, before ITunes, it would cost me a fortune to buy CDs for just one song! Now, I am constantly asking my boys, "What's that song?" "Who sings that?". I'm sure it's really annoying to them! I keep a notepad in my car for songs I hear. (Of course, I do not write while driving)
I absolutely cannot run without music (or sometimes I listen to a book). The thought of running to the silence in my head is just too much for me! So, the first playlist below is for a long run (it really made it fun today!) and the next for most any workout, except it will be for my bodysculpt class.
Hope they give you some ideas or inspiration to beat the boredom!
Have a Great Workout and a Great Week!
If you have any ideas for music, please share!
