Last night I finally had a chance to see Feist in concert! Wooo! Mushaboom ;-) I've been waiting over two years to see her live. She (Leslie Feist) took a couple years off and mainly performed in Canada/ Upstate NY (which is still basically Canada). Seeing her perform at The Warfield in San Francisco was well worth the wait. She mostly played songs off her latest album, Metals. She is surprisingly AMAZING live. She has great energy and is very playful with the crowd. I also loved her outfit from head to toe!
I don't believe that workout music always needs to be super dancy-like pop beats, cranked-up bass hip hop beats, or angry rock music... granted some days it is for me. But most days, I just like to listen to what makes me happy and smile inside (and out). Here's a sample of some of the songs I've been enjoying while running and cross training lately. These songs definitely wouldn't get the job done in the weight room for me (when I need to tap into a bit more force and power...GRRRRrrr) but they work well on a light training day when I'm just out for a recovery workout. These tunes may not be your cup of tea, but their just an example of how you can considering varying your playlist based on the intensity of your workout. ENJOY! ~xoxo
