    Cadence Beat

    After having my knee on ice for the past couple of days, I figure that I should look at some options to measure my cadence. I use a mp3 in one ear for tunes so I figured that I add in a beat that is in the (80-90?) range. A new computer is under consideration, just not right now (laid off).

    Does anyone use music for maintaining cadence, and if so what type, or greatest hit to you just for the beat. Another direction that I'm looking at is a beat to download. Be it a straight up beat track to download, or a metronnon that I could downlaod.

    Thanks for any help.

    Download and install Audacity ( http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ ), and under one of the menus there is a "generate click track" option (or somesuch). That will create an audio track that is basically a metronome (you can select the speed, and how long of a track to generate.)

    You can then export the sound file. You can encode it as an mp3 and put it on an mp3 player, or you could burn it to a CD. (If you burn it to a CD, bear in mind that CD's have a maximum duration, somewhere between 70 and 80 minutes depending on the CD.)
