Now, another tip for you.
You know when you are running with your iPod to a mix you put together, and all of the sudden a song comes on that drags your energy levels down about two hundred percent. You're left wondering what in the world you were thinking when you threw that batch of tunes together? WELL...you can choose music by the number of beats per minute. This means you can get a whole mix that is the same tempo, and you can make it match your speed. It reaaally doesn't get much better than that. Your brain can perceive the beat of your music as a heart beat, which explains why a really up-tempo, high energy song can get your blood flowing and give you an awesome boost of energy.
So how do you do this? Well click HERE to figure out how to convert your MPH (miles per hour) to BPM (beats per minute). Once you determine this you can find the perfect mix for your run, download it for FREE, and it will open up into your iTunes. Upload that bad boy onto your ipod, and you're pretty much good to go. You can thank me later. Happy December 1st!
I'm happy...I'm on my way to the airport to visit sunny AZ again! YAY!! I'm getting mentally prepped for some great shopping. I hope your weekend gets off to a great start!
Do you have to run with music? If I am running by myself I absolutely do. When I am running with my sister she keeps my mind occupied. Are you constantly searching for new tunes like me? If you are than you'll be SUPER excited about my giveaway for December. It's coming soon!
