Time for a play list update!
I don’t know about you, but I tend to just create a play list and keep adding to it. However, the last time I added to my playlist was back in May. Three weeks ago, I ran into a problem when my playlist was finished before my run. It wasn’t a big deal as I’m getting used to running shorter distances sans music. Since my long runs are getting longer, I can’t afford to have my playlist run out too soon and I do tend to skip over some songs along the way.
I like to listen to songs that are upbeat and catchy. Something that I could imagine dancing to, because dancing and running are the same right? I also need to be able to sing along to it if I want, because sometimes it’s a good distraction to start belting out Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart” during the last mile. Am I right? I also like to badly play air drums while I run. Little known fact.
So over the past few weeks I’ve added:
Pompeii – Bastille
Bang Bang – Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Manaj
Settle Down – No Doubt
Maps – Maroon 5
Rude – Magic
Come Get It Bae – Pharell
Glad You Came – the Wanted
Love Runs Out – One Republic
Problem – Ariana Grande
Fancy – Iggy Azalea
On Top of the World – Imagine Dragons
Sing – Ed Sheeran
Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
I used to be embarrassed by my Top 40 leanings but who cares. It makes for good running music.
However, you will not find any Miley Cyrus on my iPod – I do have some dignity.
My running playlist now has 41 songs – I hope that is long enough to last my 10 miler on Saturday.
What kind of music gets you motivated on your run? Do you make multiple playlists? What are the last 3 songs you added to your playlist?
