Some of us listen to music... others watch TV... some folks read a magazine.
For me, it depends on the workout routine I'm completing.
Treadmill Running: I always watch TV, and will sometimes plan my run so it happens when there's a "good" show scheduled.
Outside Running: I almost always listen to music on my MP3 player. On rare occasions Hubby joins me, in which case I chat with him.
Lifting Weights: Again, I watch TV. Our gym equipment is in our basement, and we have a TV in the same room.
Karate Drills: This is the one workout where I really focus on what I'm doing. Usually the TV is on, but I don't watch it unless I need a break.
Elliptical: TV again.
So what do YOU do when you workout?
