Workout Music

This is a touchy subject for some folks. Most trainers say, if it helps motivate you, go for it. But there are some who say that critical parts of your workout need all of your mental energy. You need to pay attention to your pain, feel the effort, and think about what you’re doing. In other words, a distraction from your base miles is good, but a distraction from your skill development (speed or power workouts or technique work) is not so good.

Shhhhhhh… don’t tell the battalion safety officer, but I’ve been road biking with my iPod. I know, I’m like the last guy who wasn’t riding with one. And I’m still kind of a wuss about it. I got a non-stereo, single ear bud thingy from Radio Shack, because I can’t set the iPod to mono, so I only keep it in one ear, so i can still hear traffic. But still, that would be a 4C or a 15-and-15 or something if I got caught on post doing that.

But it’s working. For base mileage workouts, it makes 2-3 hours just disappear.

So here’s what I’ve been listening to lately: my Velo Tunes list.
