Do You Listen to Holiday Music When You Work Out?

My running buddy just told me she's been rocking the Christmas tunes on her iPod for strength training sessions. Not only do the holiday songs get her into the spirit of the season, but the cheerful tunes also remind her of the good things she is doing for herself in such a busy time. It's a great idea, but I am not sure if I'll be downloading a bunch of holiday songs onto my iPod anytime soon. What about you guys . . .

It hadn't even occurred to me to do this. Maybe I will!

Oh I've been doing this all week! The Pandora Rocking Christmas channel - Christmas carols make me so happy, I often find myself smiling as a favorite song pops on. But then, I've been listening to Christmas songs all day every day for a few weeks now...

Nope. Christmas carols are reserved for when I'm baking, cleaning, or wrapping presents. Not for when I'm burning calories--it's not motivating enough for me. And it bugs the crap outta me that the gym plays carols on the loudspeakers for the entire month of December.

I listen to it when I work but not when I work out. It makes the day go faster but it doesn't make my legs go faster, see.

not the super religious carols (which I do love on their own), but Harry Connick or Ella Fitzgerald jazzy Christmas stuff, as well as more modern versions, absolutely :)

Nope. I like Christmas music, but I need something more motivating.
