What's on Your MP3 Player?

I'm always curious about what people have on their MP3 players. I personally don't like listening to music when I'm walking -- I almost always have a good audio book on mine. (I know, I'm boring.)

So, what is on your MP3 player?
What are your favorite walking songs?
Do you listen to different artists depending on the speed you want to maintain?

I often have a good book on mine, too :)! Especially like that for easy days, recovery days, and longer distance days.

I like music for my hard workouts - I prefer something very upbeat to keep me going; hard rock, alternative, etc.

However, I've been training a lot w/o music recently because I'm entered in the National Masters' Championships in Spokane, and USATF prohibits headphones, so I will have to do w/o music. That is a significant downer to me, but training w/o it helps to be ready for the races.

I do find music very motivating and it picks me up when I'm tired, usually.

Cindi, most of the time I listen to programming from NPR that I download podcasts from iTunes. I download podcasts of "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" (funny, newy, type game show, typically aired on Saturday mornings), Car Talk (again Saturday morning airing), NPR Shuffle (daily mix of NPR news and features), MSNBC "Countdown with Keith Olbermann", and a daily sports show of "Mike and Mike in the Morning" on ESPN.

For my speed workouts -- tempo and intervals, I listen to my lame music, you know - Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, Bon Jovi. And sometimes I listen to my kids' music, or my wife's AC/DC stuff.

Ok, I can't wait for you to put me on your Twitter list. Hey, I can't even figure out how to do a comment to this blog without doing it as "anonymous". So, I'm sure Twitter will be really helpful. :-)
