Workout Playlist 2

No, you did not miss Workout Playlist 1, maybe I will post that sometime but thought I would post the songs on my current workout playlist.

This is how I feel when I get to Keep Your Hands to Yourself

I was basically looking for something that would have a quick enough beat to keep me in the cardiozone. Good timing on Whenever God Shines His Light, comes right at minute 40 where I enter my cool down for my 40 minutes on the elliptical and Cockburn’s People See Through chimes in right as I do my weights.

Of course needed music that I like as well as being good for the pace of my exercise. Punctuated by a couple of “inspirational” songs – Iris DeMent’s Shores of Jordan (because at this point of my workout I feel like I just may be getting ready to cross the Jordan!) and Van’s God Shines His Light. Start off with Werewolves to get going on a fast pace (Workout Playlist 1 starts with Start Me Up by the Stones).

You can probably figure out why I finish with one of Queen’s best known songs.
