Ahhhhh the treadmill. I stepped back on to the treadmill last night for the first time in 2007. In my eyes the key to the treadmill is good music. Lets face it, running in place for 30 minutes is boring. I have tried to make different play list on my ipod to keep the music fresh and new. I have tried everything from Hollaback Girl and Golddigger to Kick Start my Heart and Welcome to the Jungle. I find that the heavy music is best for when I hit the weights. I have not found the ideal running music yet! If anyone has recommendations to what works for them I am all ears.
On thing I have figured out is Eye of Tiger is the perfect music to listen to when walking in the front door of the gym. If that doesn't get you pumped up, you may want to check with the doctor to make sure you have a pulse!
