There was a discussion on Runner's World about power songs: Power songs...pretty self-explanatory, right? Right. So, I read through all the posts. All of them. Very popular are Eminem's Lose Yourself and Survivor's Eye of the Tiger. All genres of music were represented.
I have always loved anything peppy. As long as it was happy and danceable, then I liked it! I mean my mp3 player playlist has songs from the Legally Blonde soundtrack, Toby Keith, Eminem, army cadences, Hannah Montana, Rascal Flatts, Kiss, The Killers, Lenny Kravitz, Britney Spears, Elvis, Will Smith (and more) and my new favorites, angry man groups, like Linkin Park, Rage Against the Machine,Foo Fighters and Godsmack. I NEVER thought I'd like this type of music, but these songs are really power songs for me...they can get me running or keep me running like no other music can.
I worked out today at the gym again on the elliptical. My knee is feeling better, so I guess I did need the rest. Whatever. Anyway, I didn't try to set it up for any pre-set program. I just put it on manual and did intervals at certain points. I wasn't bored b/c I had to pay so much attention to the time, so it ended up being a good workout. Yay!
