My workout mix

I've had a couple of people ask for this, and I'm sorry it's taken so long to get up. It's uh... big. Currently I'm walking about 2 1/2 hours 6 days a week with that bumping up to 3 1/2 hours five times a week, so I need a lot of music. This is the newest mix I've made. I replace it every two weeks, or sooner, depending. (If you're wondering why I walk so much, it's because I'm raising money for women with breast cancer - I'm walking 60 miles in one weekend. Feel free to make a donation, should you feel so inspired. It's an amazing organization with every single penny going directly to someone's care, not an administrator.)

I had to break this down into groups, because uploading individual songs would have been redonk. Here's my theory on what I listen to: I like to either rock out, feel like a badass or sexy, or shake my butt. If I can laugh while doing that, it's like Christmas and Halloween made into a cake shaped like ponies. Which is why I've got some Flight of the Conchords and Monty Python here. And South Park. :) I don't want emo music, or classical, or anything that makes me slow down/stop working out. Pick out what you want, toss what you don't. (And let me know if you're taking so I can keep track, por favor.)
