In trying to find something positive this week and not being a Negative Nellie Oleson, I realized at this time last year when I ran on the treadmill I’d run at about 5.0, now when I run I alternate between a 6.0 to 6.3.
I actually hate running but it’s a means to an end. Mostly making my end smaller. When the thought of a smaller butt doesn’t spur me on, these are the songs that do.
Home For A Rest by Spirit Of The West — This song reminds me of my best friend and getting drunk. It never helps me remember the awful hangovers. The perfect way to start off a run.
End Of The Line by The Traveling Wilburys — This song has a great pacing beat.
End Of The Line by The Traveling Wilburys — I like it so much I play it twice
Turbulence by Steve Aoki & Laidback Luke — I know. I’m a 43-year-old mother and I listen to this. The horror!
I Like How It Feels by Enrique Iglesias — For the record, most times I don’t like how it feels. At All.
Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO — Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle yeah. My kids have made me promise I will never do this in public.
Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen — It’s catchy. I got sucked in.
Back In Time by Pitbull — A mix of the 80s Dirty Dancing song Love Is Strange and club music. Booyah!
Lose Yourself by Eminem — Yep. Eminem is my guilty pleasure. *shrugs shoulders* What can I say? In my head I’m still really, really young.
Last Night by Ian Carey — I had more than a few of those nights back in my younger years. Also, this past Saturday night.
Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes — Although if I actually danced to this song I would probably look like this.
Also, I can totally do the hip puppeteering thing. My kids have made me promise I will never do that move out in public either.
Hey Mama by Mat Kearney — How can you not want to run to this song?
Cinderella Man by Eminem — I have a slight crush on Eminem. He *may* be on my laminated list.
Dance With Me Tonight by Olly Murs — I also use this one when I’m cleaning the house. Dancing makes everything more fun! Except, apparently, when my kids are around.
On Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons — Kinda makes me feel like I am on top of the world. I do the Carleton Dance to this. You’ve done it too, don’t lie.
Some Nights by Fun — The lyrics “What do I stand for” reminds me I stand for not falling down when I’m speed skating.
Lonely Boy by The Black Keys –My friend @jackstrawlane introduced me to this song when she showed me this video. How can you not love this guy?
Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis — Great running beat. Also, to slam down lemon drops. Not that I would know. I’m just guessing.
It’s Like That by Run-DMC vs. Jason Nevins — This song was first released on cassette. CASSETTE!
The Cave by Mumford and Sons — Perfect for cooling down and thinking about how good that glass of wine is going to taste which sometimes makes morning runs awkward.
