My Running Mix.

Day 14. National Blog Posting Month.

Well, it took 4 days but I finally recovered from my first run last week. I wasn’t surprised how much I hurt, after all, I did just get cut open and  have a new human being removed from me not too long ago!  I’ve been counting the days until I could go again.  And, yesterday was that day.

When I started running last year, I went out with only my cell phone so I could “MapMyRun”.  I didn’t listen to music, or the radio, or an audiobook.  I loved listening to the sound of my feet hitting the pavement.  It wasn’t until much later that I started listening to music.  Of course, it made for much more interesting running as well as encouraged a quicker pace. I decided that to keep me motivated on these early runs, it might be worthwhile to listen to music.

While perusing Pinterest, I’ve seen a lot of pins for running songs, ie. “100 best running songs”, “top 10 running songs”, “summer running songs” etc.  I’ve looked at a few and thought, “Meh, I can do better”.  As I talked about in my post Music, I am a sucker for a good hook.  If a song has a good beat and melody, I will probably like it.  So, before my run yesterday, I went through my music list and compiled a running mix.  Here’s what played on my run:

  • Pink – “Just Like A Pill”
  • Carly Rae Jepsen – “Call Me Maybe”
  • Pink – “Raise Your Glass”
  • Daft Punk – “Get Lucky”
  • Calvin Harris – “Feel So Close”
  • Daft Punk – “Giorgio By Moroder”
  • NIN – “Head Like A Hole”
  • Deadmau5 – “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff”

So let me ask my followers who run – What do you listen to?
