Hey all, I feel so blah today! I somehow still got my butt to the gym but had such a “blah” workout. I felt like I was just trodding along on the treadmill like a zombie, and I realized I am bored with 90 percent of the music in my I-pod. I need a gym-music revival! What are some great songs to work out to? What makes you feel like you could keep going , and going, and going….
Here are some of the songs I’m not sick of (yet.)
-Sweet Dreams, Beyonce
-Love Games, Lady Gaga (I used to NOT like her at all, I’m just now getting on the bandwagon…)
-Thriller, Michael Jackson (never gets old…except the laughing at the end is scary!)
-Supermassive Black Hole, Muse
-After Tonight, Justin Nozuka
-And surprisingly enough, anything by the cast of Glee. Seriously! Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it!
So let’s share! I like pretty much all kinds of music.

I usually only run to rock but I have a few hip-hop staples (mostly old because I never listen to the radio!)
The Boogie That Be – BEP
Boys – Britney Spears
Dirty – Christina Aguilera
Good Girls Gone Bad – Cobra Starship
Empire State of Mind – Jay Z and Alicia
For My People/Pass The Dutch – Missy
No Panties/Pull Over – Trina
You Can Do It – Ice Cube
Bombs Over Baghdad – Outkast
I Know You Want Me – Pitbull
Fire – Busta Rhymes and Joe Budden (it’s like 5 minutes long so really kills some time!)

I download the (free) Podrunner podcasts. They’re basically DJ mixes that either stay at the same beats-per-minute for the entire (usually hour-long) song, or interval mixes that intermittently vary the bpm. I’m incapable of listening to music without running in-time to it, so this helps me maintain a steady pace.

If I’m doing tredmill/cardio workouts I need techno or fast moving music…benny benassi, louie devitro, britney spears etc. If I am doing weights then i need something a bit harder but still has something to keep me going…usually GNR, Dropkick Murphys, Linkin Park songs.
