I live in an unsafe neighborhood. Running with earbuds is quite dangerous to anyone who can't outrun 17 year olds with knives.

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.

When I run/walk outside, I run with no music. Partly, I like it this way but I also like the safety of it as I often run alone and need to be able to hear if someone unsavory or a vehicle approaches. If I am at the gym using equipment, I just have whatever ambient noise is there.

I listen to the sounds of the outdoors when I run, and the clank of weights when I lift.

Could be a wide variety of music, depending upon my mood and what I am doing.

I giggled when I saw the Conan soundtrack because I have used the soundtrack to the first Mortal Combat movie

Since my cardio is usually dance... yes! Most often it's just various Middle Eastern drum rhythms on loop for drilling purposes, but sometimes it's real songs.

When I'm doing strength training I tend toward power or symphonic metal (or, lately, the Conan the Barbarian soundtrack). And for yoga, something soothing, slow, and instrumental.

When you work out, do you listen to music? What kind of music?
For me its Techno for aerobics, weight lifting, and New Age for stretching. For relaxing I usually listen to piano.
