What I’m Working Out to Wednesday

Hurt Me

I don’t know what it is about this song, but I love it! I found it listening to some Spotify playlist and it’s pretty catchy. It was on my list for my pole competition but didn’t make the cut, but it makes a great addition to a running playlist!

What do you think?

The Phantoms
Watch Me

Heard this song in the background of an Instagram video recently. OBSESSED!

What I’m Working Out to Wednesday

20131107-131103.jpgI started running in 2007, and one of the reasons I initially began to enjoy it was because I LOVE music. I started running on the treadmill, and the only way I could suffer through it was with a great playlist. Once I started running outside, I still loved having my iPod but it was easier to still get the workout done if I didn’t have it for some reason. I have a pretty eclectic taste in music – really, there’s nothing I won’t listen to. My favorite genre is indie rock, but my workout playlists feature songs from a pretty broad spectrum.

Of my 35 marathons, I’ve only run three without music – my first three Boston Marathons. I’ve also gone through a whole bunch of iPod Nanos – I would destroy them during hot marathons when I would dump water over my head. I smartened up and purchased a shuffle last time, and I’ve never looked back. It’s much cheaper, fits plenty of music, and is super tiny and clips on your clothes – no weird arm tan lines from having something strapped to you arm!

I watched “The Fault in Our Stars” last week (cute, but requires a box of tissues for sure – and I’m not usually a crier) and this jam has been in my head ever since…funny since it’s not a new song and I couldn’t STAND it when I first heard it. But somehow, it made the cut for my workout playlist and I’ve listened to it more than a few times ever since!
