Motivate Me Running Playlist

Over the past month, I have really started to struggle with staying motivated to run those 9, 10, 11, and 12 milers. I simply lost the motivation to do it. One of the ways that I kept myself going was changing up the music playlist. I found that sitting down and putting together a new playlist got me excited to hit the road and try it out.

All of the songs are upbeat, motivating and some had me singing along while running. True Life, I ran singing Breaking Dishes several times.

These songs are definitely all over the place but I couldn’t help myself when certain songs came over my ear buds. How can you ignore the contagious beat of Come With Me Now, or the I’m going to kill this run feeling of Barracuda and Eye of the Tiger?? It’s just not possible.

What is your motivating running song?? What beat can’t you ignore??

A Happy, Throwback Running Playlist

Usually, when I’m running, I listen to Pandora and just select a radio station that I think will motivate me for the next 45 minutes. Pit Bull Radio is a favorite and recently it’s been Workout Radio. However happy and upbeat, or pumped up the song is, it’s rare that one will really get me excited about it.

Ergo…I’ve started back into the crazy world of making playlists. Considering I have just about no music on my iTunes (I lost all 5500 songs when my college computer died), I’ve been trying to be selective on which songs I actually download.

I made this playlist while looking for some motivating throwbacks. Songs that you don’t really hear on the radio today and songs that bring me back to training on teams in high school and college.

Brent…thought this also made a great 5AM road trip playlist, so guess what we jammed to on our trip out to Michigan?! After that interesting car ride, I’m going to change it to an after 8AM playlist because I need my coffee before I listen to Brent belting out What a Feeling. It was a very enthusiastic rendition.

Barracuda, in this play list, was a great decision. I was just about sprinting when that song came on.

What is your favorite workout song??
