On to the first part, though, the music. It's so mixed up that I never get bored while doing an hour on the elliptical/treadmill/bike & then usually another hour on weights & then sometimes some more cardio, then stretching. It's seriously schizophrenic, though. It's all over the damn place. Of course when you have siblings who are WAY older than you, your mom is constantly playing music while you're growing up as well & add in a few musically-inclined guys in your life and you're left with this vast aural thumbprint that stays with you. It means I listen to pretty much everything & I'm not just one of those people who says it just so people don't judge their musical tastes. I really really really do enjoy electronica dance for serious cardio though or angry "I will kick your ass and make you eat your own face" rock music. Today, for example, just some of the artists:
-New Kids on the Block
-Ace of Base
-Metallica (and i'm talking old school "Ride the Lightning"...Metallica isn't shit since they had to be whiny bitches about Napster)
People do the album cover scroll on my Iphone and then they know for sure that I'm totes ADD.
