For Fun Reviews

What’s on your training playlist?

The monotony on winter turbo training gets to your head a little bit, sometimes.

One of the things I do love about spending time in my own personal indoor spinning hell is that (as well as making me faster, hopefully), it gives me a chance to fall in love with my favourite music again.

However, I tend to get stuck on loop – listening to the same albums over and over again. Sometimes, we all need a little inspiration.

I thought I’d play around with Sportify and see if I could remind myself of some of my old favourites from my teenage years, when music occupied 70% of my brain. Perhaps I’ll share a little musical inspiration with some of you, but only if you like punk and a bit of angry thrash (oh, and Shania Twain..) Here are my all time favourite tracks:

What do you like to listen to when training?

I am an NCTJ qualified journalist and copywriter with a year’s worth of experience as a local hack, and just under two years’ of experience working in the marketing department for a highstreet retailer. I currently work at Cycling Weekly, previous to this I was the editor at Total Women's Cycling. I do a little freelance writing alongside my job, and have written for Runner’s World, Triathlete’s World, Sussex Sport, Basingstoke Gazette newspaper, the Brighton Argus, Steve Hart Photography and 2LK Design. I blog to record the activities in my life which I don’t want to forget when I’m old and wrinkly (let’s hope the internet never melts down – but it seems safer than a notebook) – to let old friends and family know what I’m up to, and because I enjoy playing with words. I’m always looking for new projects – and you can email me should you ever need someone with an energetic passion for word doodling. Email: michelle.arthurs@gmail.com Twitter: @MichelleArthurs
