I was looking for something in iTunes and found that Nike has a whole series of music collections designed for sports. Here are a few examples:
- Treadmill Training: Mixed Terrain 1
- 10k Powerplay
- Improve your Endurance
- Build your Strength
And my personal favorite - Run Like it's 1985. It features ten 80's songs to get your legs, heart, and head moving.
This is a cool idea! A great exercising hack. Go to iTunes and and select the "Nike Sport Music" genre in the menu on the top lefthand side of the page.
Or create your own mix. And not just for sports. Think about the music that helps you relax, work, plan, or write.
Speaking of "Just Do It," the reason I found the Nike music is I was searching for a song that I thought was called Just Do It. The song is a perfect lyrical kick in the butt. The song is actually called Whatever it Is by Ben Lee. Pay your 99 cents and get a wee infusion of motivation. A few lines:
Just do it, whatever it is.
Awake is the new sleep. Awake is the new sleep. So wake up....Wake up
And do it, whatever it is.
Whatever it is, just do it.
Whatever it is, go do it.
And your dancing and your looking kind of crazy....
