Terrífico Tuesday- Keeping the Beat

Submitted by on March 2, 2010 - 3:00 pm

Well, if you read yesterday’s blog post you know that I have signed up for the MORE Magazine/Fitness Magazine Half Marathon in Central Park, my first. I have an entire workout schedule set for the upcoming 8 weeks, until the race. I am planning to finish, not finish first. When I started wrapping my head around completing a half marathon I realized that I would need a few things: new running shoes, check, new running bra, check, (probably many other things that I have yet to realize), but most importantly TUNES to move me, check. I found a few great podcasts that not only motivate, with a strong beat at specific bpm (beats per minute). Remember, I was a dancer, I can’t run off beat, so the music better have a beat at the right tempo to keep my on my training routine. I like the podcasts by Motion Traxx, that I found on iTunes. Coincidentally, Motion Traxx has several “Fitness Magazine” workouts. The one that I am using this week is called “Fitness Magazine You Can Do It: Lose 10 Pounds a Jean Size ’09 Interval #1, The Quickie“. That’s the one that I trained to on Saturday. It was just the right fitness level for me. If you want to try it out, do a search on iTunes for Fitness Magazine You Can Do It: Lose 10 Pounds ’09 Interval #1, The Quickie. I used it while working on a treadmill, but I could just have easily taken a run in my neighborhood, to the same tunes.

What workout mixes do you like? I’d love any suggestions that you might have. Gotta go! (I’m off to the gym now).

    When I used to go to the gym for spinning (not sure if you have a different name for this in the US), the instructor had a lot of Ricky Martin music e.g. Livin’ La Vida Loca. It certainly helped keep me going and added some fun. Another good track is Jai Ho by Pussy Cat Dolls. A third one I like is ‘In the Mood’ from Glenn Miller Orchestra – this might have the right beat you are looking for but is a bit old fashioned and short. You could create your own playlist(s) and have 3 or 4 of them for variety. Anyway, regardless of my taste in music, I wish you the best of luck getting ready for the marathon!
