ED BLOG: Are you a gadget girl?

For the past few months, I’ve been working out sans tunes. It’s just me and my thoughts, running down the open road or twisting into tricky yoga poses. I recently read an article in the New York Times about how certain gadgets can lead to serious fitness feats. One guy they interviewed shaved 3+ minutes off his mile time—that’s major!
Now, I’m wondering if I should incorporate more tech-y toys into my routine. Do you girls rock out when you work out? Have you tried any exercise apps or cool games for Wii Fit?
I have an iPod Touch, so I could download one of a million workouts from iTunes. I might get better results if I add geeky gadgets to my routine but, truth is, it’s kinda nice to run for an hour and clear my head. Plus, my friends and I like to walk ‘n’ talk to catch up—headphones would def ruin that.
So, girlies, what do we think about plugged in exercise? Do you go geek girl or are you more of an old-fashioned femme when it comes to fitness?
Healthy hearts,
Katie A.
