Running Songs of the Week: Week 1

songsoftheweeksongsoftheweekSo guess what? I started running again. Even more amazing, I am not blasting my runs all over social media. GASP {Did they really happen?} But it just happened that I came back in January. It wasn’t a resolution to lose weight or whatever. It was just timing.

I started running early fall again and was having hip pain. I went to my Dr. and she thought I just had strained it from carrying Ollie on my hip and basically doing everything. Cooking, cleaning, leaning into the floorboard to get something and even get the older kid into the car. This was before he was walking and life is what it is. I had to carry him…so I met with a PT that gave me stretches and orders to not run for 6 weeks. Well then life got busy. Blah blah blah.

So here we are. January and needing to get back into it. I have ran a few times now and managing the hip strain. As I was on a run this week, I decided I needed to wipe out my playlist and start fresh. A new series will be born, each Friday I will post my top 5 motivating running songs from that week.

This Week:

1. Beyonce – Run The World {Girls}

2. Pharrell – Happy

3. She Wants Revenge – All Wound Up

4. M.I.A. – XXXO

5. David Guetta with Akon & Ne-Yo – Play Hard

Join me! Comment your favorites to add to the next week. I will keep a running Rdio and Spotify playlist for all to see.

    I’m running more in 2014 — somewhere, I signed up for a bunch of races and I don’t want to embarrass myself, so, it’s to the roads I go.

    My running playlists, though, are odd, it’s not until I’ve hit 15+ that I actually need music to pump me up. At the beginning of a run, and all of the way through a half-marathon+, I need to keep myself held-back. Some of my favorites are Janis Joplin’s rendition of “Me & Bobby McGee,” PM Dawn’s “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss,” Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds “O Children,” the Pixies “Where Is My Mind”

    Okay, I love love love this. I need good music to run and I have to change it up a lot or else I get stupid board. I also have to rearrange my spotify playlist every week because the “random” plays in the same order and I do not like knowing what is coming next.

    Anyway, some of my favs as of late:

    Work Bitch – Britney, Dirrty- Christina Aguilera, Team – Lorde, That’s not my name – The Ting Tings, Rabiosa – Shakira, Timber – Ke$ha & Pit Bull (because what’s a running play list without those two)

      Oh yes. Ting Tings would have been #6.

    I’m always connecting with my S. FL roots while running 🙂 “Miami 2 Ibiza” “frisky” both had me running fast this week 🙂
