So what music do you like?
When I'm by myself at the gym I cannot work out without music. Sometimes I'm with my trainer, or doing a class or working out with a friend and I don't bother, but when I'm by myself I stick my headphones on and kind of zone out. Most people use upbeat songs to get them going at the gym. I sometimes do. But sometimes I listen to ballads. My MP3 player gym mix includes - The Feelers (current total favourite), Queen, Yellow Card, Green Day, Norah Jones, Eric Clapton, James Blunt, Crowded House, Dave Dobbyn and Evermore- shall we say eclectic (overused word, I know, but apt).
Despite having the latest technology I confess to being a bit of a techno-phobe. I love my red MP3 player(surprise present from D) but I have to get D or Miss 12 to download my music. D is great at sneaking in the odd track he thinks I'll like. He is a bit harder rock than I am but I usually like his surprises. I think I like that he has chosen them for me.
We love it that our kids love music and get pleasure from it. Cait loves Good Charlotte. I love it when a song comes on the radio and I ask "who sings that?" and they race one another to answer. Even Elli at 7 can tell his Mika from his ELEMEN OP. His favourite band is My Chemical Romance ."I'm an emo!" he tells me!
So different from when I was a kid. My Dad only ever listened to opera!
