I’m finally getting around to sharing my current running playlist with all of you! I always love seeing other runners’ music, and it’s a great way to discover some new songs that might put me in the right mood to run!
But first, let’s talk about tonight’s workout. Or lack of workout. Or maybe just basic exercise is more like it?
Ya’ll, I tried really, really hard to get my head in the game, and not focus on how sore my legs are, but I just couldn’t do it. I didn’t even realize they were sore and tired until I started running! I fought it, and fought it, and finally just gave in to a half run/half walk lap around the lake. Even though my 10k was this past Saturday, I am not ashamed to admit that my legs are STILL sore from it. Not really sure why, maybe it’s the lack of stretching I am always guilty of, but I just didn’t have any gas in the tank tonight. And that’s okay. Better luck tomorrow!
Pros: It was sunny, hot, and I wore my new $10 Reebok tank top I scored at TJ Maxx recently. BAM.
I’m debating doing a 5k on Saturday, but I actually can’t decide if A. I even want to race again and B. which 5k I want to register for. There seems to be multiple 5k’s every weekend now! It’s definitely 5k season around here!
My Current Running Playlist – May 2014
I like a wide variety of music, so my playlist may or may not tickle your fancy! I tend to listen to songs that help me zone out and run on auto-pilot. If my whole playlist consists of super high energy, techno songs, it tends to ware me out mentally. So typically, my playlists have a good mix of chill, upbeat, fun, and different! I try to avoid a playlist full of songs I hear on the radio all day long because too often I find myself fooling around trying to skip songs, so I try to stick to a playlist I don’t listen to on-the-reg. But let’s be honest, I could run to Pharrell’s “Happy” any day of the week!
Here’s what I’ve been listening to as of late:
What songs are you currently loving while out on a run? Are you running any 5k’s soon?
I’ve got a few reviews and giveaways coming soon, get excited!!
