Here's a Valentine for your heart (your actual heart, the organ that pumps blood through your body).
I've been posting 30 minute mixes optimized for cardio workouts over at Mixcloud. The idea is pretty simple: each song averages between 120 and 160 beats per minute (generally considered the ideal range for cardio exercise). Personally, I've found it really is easier to keep moving at a brisk pace when the music falls in this ideal range. I've got a number of other cardio mixes up at Mixcloud as well.
There's a Mixcloud app for both iPhone/iOS and Android devices, so it's quite easy to access these mixes on the go.
