Some of my pals from grad school and I have a little online support group for our exercise habits. In addition to victories, defeats, injuries and goals, we also share recipes and (as of today) music.
I'd promised the group that I would compile a workout mix specifically for them, and share. But hey, you're apparently reading my blog, so why not share with you as well?
The music that I like to listen to while running broadly falls into two categories: 1) balls out rock and 2) things I like to dance to. The latter category encompasses pop, hip hop, funk, electro, etc. The former is self explanatory.
This mix is firmly entrenched in the second category, though a rock-oriented mix may follow. I'll keep the tracklist a secret for now (surprises!). But I tested it out on shorter runs the last two days, and I'm pretty pleased. A couple of not-so-great transitions, but overall I'm satisfied. I use it for running, but I'm sure it would suit pretty much any exercise activity. Enjoy!
