Anyone who works out with their headphones knows how awesome it is when you get a big lift from your favorite song. Or hearing a cool tune you would have never picked shuffle through on your picturesque jog… With 1000s of songs on my iPod I almost always shuffle.
I’ve always thought it would be cool, interesting, perhaps even motivating to write about each playlist and the music’s effect on myself and the workout. Then I thought that might be kind of boring. Then I thought, “Yeah,” I was right…on both counts. 😉
Really just another chance to talk about music!

4 mile jog, plus
You know its gonna be a good run when the first 2.5 miles are all your favorites!
“Sinner’s Swing,” -Van Halen
“You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,” -Judas Priest
“Circles,” -Joe Satriani
“After Forever,” -Black Sabbath
“Big Bad Will (Is Sweet William Now),” -Van Halen
“Moby Dick,” -Led Zeppelin
“Nobody Does it Better,” Carly Simon
“Symphony no 96 in D Major, 1st Mvmnt,” -Franz Joseph Haydn
“Poison My Eyes,” -Anthrax
“Symphony No. 3 in D Minor, 3rd Mvmnt,” -Gustav Mahler
None of the songs specifically effected me on the run today. It was just cool to have so many of my favorites play. “Moby Dick,” was probably the coolest song of the run. Nothing like a mile and a half drum solo from John Bonham to keep you going! Carly Simon might seem like the odd song out, but, I was already in a groove and I like that song.
“Poison My Eyes,” is probably my favorite Anthrax song. I like the heaviness and progressiveness of it. Also because I don’t know a lot of their music…any of my metal bloggers out there have any Anthrax recommendations?
Full disclosure: It was about 85o degrees this morning in San Diego, all apologies to the rest of the northern hemisphere. So the rock n roll laden playlist was definitely appreciated to beat the heat.
