No headphones here. No way. When I hear the sounds of the natural world, I’m all in for my outdoor workouts. I work through so many challenges, problems, and I get super creative. It is so de-stressing and the feeling is awesome! I think if you give it a try, it’s very meditative and calming. If you go into a workout with the attitude of having to just get through it and get it over with, it may not hook you. And I would hate for you to miss out on that unreal feeling of not only being done but feeling inspired to do it again and and again, and be connected to nature and the outdoors. Plus you never know who you may meet along the way.
