I need something to get me moving. We got an exercise bike and it's in the guest bedroom so I started catching up on my favorite tv shows. They are the perfect length-45 minutes. I've found the more action in the show the harder I work.
A few times I've done long stretches of miles I watched the news but found that I tend to go slower when trying to watch. I do much better to either listen to music or just let my mind go onto other things and get the miles past me
what I don't understand is how people read or look through magazines as they go ???

This depends on where I am and what I am doing, In the pool I can swim laps without music, doing most cardio at the gym I need the music to push me, strength is debatable I can go either way, but while outside on a long walk or bike ride, I usually can do without! :)
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Today i did my one hour workout without any music, and i have to say i found it quite hard. I definitely needed the beat of the music especially when i was on the stationery bike. I found it not so bad with strength training. But all in all i reckon that music really helps you to work out that little bit harder. What do you think?
Sometimes I feel like giving up. Then I remember I have a lot of people to prove wrong.
