I was wondering something. If you are distracted (with music or tlaking to someone or something like that) while you are excercising, are you better able to excercise mentally then if you weren't? And when i say mentally, I mean how long it takes until you start "feeling the burn" or starting to want to quit, not how long until your body starts giving way under stress. I always noticed last semester that when i had to walk across campus from this one class to another, it always seemed like such a long and exausting trip except when I was talking to one of my friends during the walk! If i talked to my friend while we both went to that class, it seems like the walk was much quicker and I never really felt like i had walked anywhere. Is there anything to this? Would sitting infront of a tv while running result in a better/longer excercise then if you were completely focused on running? If so, does it depend on how easily you get distracted?
