Currently I've got a Brian Adams Greatest Hits album on my MP3 player. lol It really helps out when on days I have to stick to the treadmill.

I have to confess that, although I own an iPod, it's never been activated. I hate the earbuds (they hurt my ears) and I don't have any way to carry it about so...

Also, I don't find music helps m walk better. Don't know why, but I prefer to walk without any music or words.

Lately I've been listening to a podcast by DJ Steve Boyett called Podrunner. I've found that some of his mixes that are at around 165 - 175 bpm make me want to move and dance. What's also nice is that there's a podcast every two weeks at different beats so we quickly have a nice collection of mixes to choose from.

Where did you find a podcast with music only?

Hi Amy,

There are a few workout music podcast on there. Steve Boyett does the Podrunner but also the Groovelectric mixes. You can find them on his website. He also has the Couch to 5K podcasts. If you are using iTunes to dowload or subscribe to podcasts, just search with the keywords "exercise music" or "workout music" to find them. There's IndieSoup Runner, DiscoWorkout, Keep It Movin, Techno Sweat Workout, etc. Many have that a slight to strong techno beat to it but there are a few that have Latin beats and mixes.

For non-workout music, I download Groovecafe by an Italian name Cristian Trouble J, which is mostly lounge music though he sometimes mixes other genres like Brazilian. He will say "Groovecafe Aperitif by Cristian Trouble J: here and there. If you don't mind that, then you'll have nearly 2 hours of music. You can download or subscribe on this website. If you like NPR's All Songs Considered, they have the Live Concerts From All Songs Considered, which is either a Tiny Desk Concert lasting around 10 to 20 minutes, to longer concerts by artists who have performed in Washington DC and recorded live by ASC. It all depends on the music one likes and listens to! I haven't really looked at podcasts for other types of music that I also like a lot, though.

HTH!
