Do you find yourself daydreaming while working out?

    Wow. No, I don't daydream. I'm only distracted by hot guys. I may check them out or see if they're checking me out. But, the distraction is never great enough to take me off of my workout. When it comes to that, I'm pretty much "on task" so to keep my heart rate up through my entire routine.

    I do all the time! It actually helps me when I'm doing a long cardio session. icon_biggrin.gif

    I visualize that I'm performing as I'm listening to Chopin or Liszt. I found that I could do 1 1/2 of cardio w/o really realizing it!...kind of...so maybe a little daydreaming is good.

    I concentrate better when working out with girls, or..umh, not with hot guys...lol

    When I am doing cardio I like to 'zone out' to music or whatever...

    But I frequently end up writing code, or designing schematics, in my head... icon_redface.gif

    OK, I amend my answer above, because I wasn't thinking about cardio, which I don't spend much time doing anyway (thanks to a great metabolism, my workout is enough to keep me trim). But, let's face it, cardio can be tedious. So, I can understand if the mind wanders while on the treadmill, or the eliptical, etc. Makes perfect sense to me in this context.

    Wow!!! I'm so jealous! You don't have to do cardio! Well, actually, I lose interest real fast when weight training...lol.

    When I am in cardio training...oh yeah, my mind wanders, especially on a treadmill! I end up thinking through new buisiness opportunities to get into, working on a new chapter for my book in my head, thinking over some of the posts from this and other sites, a fantasy or two about some hot guy I saw online or in the gym, or get into my music and sing along or visualize being at their concert performance of the song....something! If I am running or riding outside , nope, mind is focused and doesn't wander very much. Come on SPRINGTIME!icon_lol.gif
    In lifting or pool time, nope, I need to focus intently on what I am doing. I have hurt myself in the past because I didn't focus enough, so the lesson was learned.
