A legal drug for athlete: Music!

I don’t know about you, but I work out harder and longer with music than without. I can’t even imagine running for any length of distance without my running play lists. Ever wonder why that is? Costas Karageorghis, Ph.D., from London’s Brunel University School of Sport and Education Research says that “music is like a legal drug for athletes.” And his research shows that using music while you exercise reduces the perception of how hard you’re working PLUS you can increase your endurance by 15%! The full article on Dr. Karageorghis’ findings can be read by clicking here.
So speaking of music, here’s a play list that I’ve used for the past week…enjoy!
