My Top 10 Cycling Tunes

Thursday, March 03, 2011

Lately I have been cycling at the gym 5 or 6 days a week for 60 minutes. As everyone knows this can get pretty boring compared to being outside. The weather in Massachusetts is not yet cooperating. I blame it on the weather but I am also a bit wimpy.


Since I started plugging in my ipod the hour goes by in a blink. Ok..that's exaggerating..but it definitely helps the time to pass... better than watching all 6 TV screens I can see.

Sometimes I listen to work related podcasts....self improvement for my mind as well as my butt....hmmm...which looks better?

emoticon pun intended.....when I listen to music here are my favorites in no particular order....from my ipod "Workout" list...

1. John Henry (Bruce Springsteen)
2. It Takes a Great Big Woman (Lynne Jordan)
3. Suddenly I See (KT Tunstall)
4. Only The Good Die Young (Billy Joel)
5. Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash)
6. Single Ladies (Beyonce)
7. Hey Soul Sister (Train)
8. I Dreamed a Dream (Susan Boyle)
9. This Ole House (Bette Midler)
10.Gotham City Serenade (Big Rude Jake)

    Very interesting. You have more tenacity than I do. I get bored after a half hour music or not. I sometimes jump around on machine but an hour on a bike you are to be applauded.

    Enjoyed your blog! Thanks for the list of tunes. I use my Ipod touch to watch movies during cardio and music during ST. You are right that it absolutely passes the time. Spark on!

    Good play list! Lately, I have gotten "addicted" to watching NCIS while hitting the treadmill. The hour goes by quickly....and I don't miss solving any mysteries. :-)

    And I am with you....I am SO ready for Spring. I want to go outside and play!! Here in SE WA state, the weather is creeping up a bit, but that usually brings those 20-40 mph (or higher) winds. I want it all....warmer weather AND calmer winds.

    Hope you have a wonderful Friday. Best wishes always....Bill

    Normally I just listen to podcasts to pass the time. I like to sing along to my music but if I need a super motivator then I listen to a lot of electronic or punk music.

    Those are good choices!
