The best thing about the first Monday after New Year's Day is new workout clothes for the year. No more ratty yoga pants and thread-bare socks for a while. Though I am keeping my running shoes for a while since these Mizunos are fabulously indestructible.
I mentioned in my 2010 Year-Ender that I have really been digging The Wombats as workout music, but I have been thinking I need to revamp my workout playlists. I have been listening to an unusually short list for a long time, which is pretty ironic since I am so finicky the rest of the day.
So today I am turning the tables and pleading with you readers to drop me a line in the comments section with some workout music inspiration. I need a really steady beat for running. Below is a sampling of my current list. Thanks in advance!
Also, I will soon be announcing a bit of a contest for the month, so keep your eyes peeled for a chance to when an iTunes or Napster gift certificate. I ran the contest on my Facebook page last year with great success, and look forward to doing it again this year.
