I can’t work out without music. It just doesn’t feel right.
I remember times when I used to go for a run regularly – I had to always make sure that my iPod was charged enough so it would last the entire run, otherwise, I would find it much more difficult to keep the right pace or I would get bored much more easily. If you work out mostly in the gym, it might be less of an issue as most gyms now play their music, but I still prefer to have my own tracks at the ready, so I don’t have to keep skipping songs that I don’t like and can focus on training. I like making my own playlists in general (for when I cook, drive, chill out) and I thought I’d share one that I’ve been listening to lately during my HIIT training sessions.
