A MUSIC GUIDE TO YOUR NEXT KILLER SESSION
Don’t you hate it when you’re 3 minutes into an interval and you’re already thinking, “In 5 minutes, I’ll only have 12 minutes to go?” This isn’t what you want to be thinking in your next FTP or killer indoor bike session. The purpose of this post is to share with you one aspect that helps me get through an FTP test with only me, myself and I in the room. I respond greatly to external motivation from others, whether, it’s my team mates, coach or boyfriend. Unfortunately, they’re not always available so that is when I turn to MUSIC, sweet music
I find listening to music helps clear the noise in my head, give me that extra oomph and gets me in the zone to focus on the task at hand. So, listening to music isn’t exactly a new concept right? Somehow, I always seem to draw blanks when it comes time to put on music for a key session. What should I listen to? What has a good beat? NOTHING! *Bangs head on desk and puts on the radio*
So I put it out there on Facebook for my friends to help me. I asked them, “Tell me your most motivating song that gets you going while training. I'm putting together a playlist on Spotify to get me through an FTP test tomorrow.” Their response was great (thanks guys!). Take a look:
Happy training and rock on,
