When I run or bike at Healthworks, I like to keep up the intensity by listening to music.  Upbeat music is one of the biggest players in motivating me.  In fact,  I have my moments when I set my iPod to shuffle and I’m in a groove with one song just to have a slow song come up seconds later and throw me out of sync.

However,  I’ve had better luck hearing new and upbeat music recently so I wanted to share some new (to me) songs from some great bands.

If you click on the link you can try out each song via this link from lala.com – Enjoy!
