, Matt Maher (5 minutes light gardening or otherwise enjoying nature)The primary selection criterion for this soundtrack is that the song changes coincide with the planned alternation of hard exercise and recovery exercise. The author blithely combines secular and Christian music, but only because Mozart just didn't write any good jogging tunes.
The publication of this soundtrack in no way obligates the author to assume responsibility for your exercise or music-listening practices. Please use reasonable caution when exercising to music. Do not use headphones that block out ambient sound--like approaching cars, out-of-control riding lawnmowers, or vicious attack kittens--nor turn the sound up to irresponsible levels. Do not exercise without first consulting with your physician, your spiritual advisor, and a select group of girlfriends who will honestly tell you how you look in spandex. This round of exercise will burn as many calories as are in two chocolate chips (not two chocolate chip cookies!), so don't eat two pints of B&J and blame the author.
