At 5:00 am , everyone could use a little boost of ENERGY! Mine comes from my music. So there I was, at the gym heading for the treadmill. I put my earphones in and pushed “play”. I thought I was ready to hit the treadmill… but there was no juice on my ipod! I won’t last more than 10 minutes without music, especially that I was planning on running for 2 miles. Running is not my favorite, but it works! For some reason I brought my phone into the gym with me today. “YES, I thought,” … I’ve got music. I have not used it yet on my Droid X, but I knew about Pandora from my last phone. So I quickly downloaded the application, signed in, and WHA-LA… there they were. The playlist mixes I created almost a year ago, were all there. J-Lo, Jimmy Wayne, Keith Urban, Elton John, Jim Brickman… (I know, I’ve got a varied taste in music). So J-Lo and music similar to hers got me thru 2.5 miles and the Jim Brickman mix gave some great stretching music. If you’ve got the athletic mindset for working out, I highly recommend having Pandora (at least as a backup) when your battery dies on your ipod! Do you listen to music when you lift weights or do cardio? What do you listen to? Share it here!
