New Workout Playlist 11

workout playlist

I have been loving the new Shakira song with Rihanna. I had it stuck in my head all night last night. Did you know her music video to this song is banned in Colombia…because it will corrupt children’s minds?

I also have not gotten sick of Timber yet. Such a catchy song!

Which of these have you heard?

What songs do you currently have on repeat on your workout playlist or running playlist?

Marathon Playlist + Last Minute Thoughts

TOMORROW IS THE DAY!

I can’t believe it is hear. I am beyond nervous…but I’ll get to that in a bit.

I wanted to share my marathon playlist with you all. It’s only a little over an hour but I only plan on listening to music around mile 18-20 and only if I’m really struggling which hopefully is NOT the case! It’s a mix of songs, and this past week I’d hear a song come on my iTunes and think, “I need to add that to my list!”

What are your go-to pump up songs? What would you add? I am open to suggestions!

Last Minute Thoughts:

I’m really nervous…here’s why BUT I’m going to try to add in some positive affirmations after each one:

  • I’m nervous because the past 3 weeks of training have not gone as planned. I’ve missed 8 days of training, and got sick this past week. Positive Affirmation: I need to trust the training I did for 16 weeks. I ran my long runs and ran in the double digits during week days as well…I have ran more than I have ever run in the past.
  • I’m nervous because I of course got a cold this week. Positive Affirmation: I feel much better now, and though my nose will probably be runny…energy wise I feel okay. Plus, I’ve read about some runners who got sick during taper week and then PRed!
  • I’m nervous of feeling out of shape due to not running as much, and out of breath. Positive Affirmation: I will go at an easy pace in the beginning. And as my friend told me, I can take walking breaks as needed.
  • I’m nervous of not being able to finish for some crazy reason. Positive Affirmation: I WILL finish. I finished 26.2 miles in 2011 on way less training and it was my first marathon. I have covered the distance before and can do it again.

I need to keep telling myself these things! I am trying to have faith in my body and legs. I’m also nervous about the crazy wind…35 mph gusts?!?! Awesome…but alas, you can only control your body and your training. I will try to draft off other runners, or take turns with my mom drafting.

Help! Do you have any positive affirmations or thoughts you use to build mental confidence? Please share them with me!!!

See you on the other side! ;)

New Workout Tunes

I haven’t uploaded a playlist in a while…so here’s what I am currently listening to.

I’ve been obsessed with Roar by Katy Perry and Summertime Sadness (<–for the past month or so it’s been playing A LOT). Walls is a little older but it still pumps me up.

use my workout playlists for when I’m driving and want to be pumped up, or for football tailgates :)

What song is currently playing on repeat for you? Do you have driving playlists or do you prefer apps like Pandora?

Decided to switch up the design of my playlist. I’ve been loving Jason Derulo’s new song lately…as well as the Time Flies song!

I haven’t done one of these in a while…mainly because I update my playlist every couple of months. Well, recently I started listening to some new stuff (well, new to me), so I wanted to share!

currentplaylist7

I’m loving the Imagine Dragons song…it’s perfect for summer! And of course, Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore is still playing on repeat. I am not sick of it yet!

What’s your favorite workout song?

Here’s what I’m currently listening to. Sweet Nothing is still on there, I can’t get enough of that song! I am also looooving Macklemore’s song Can’t Hold Us. Perfect running song. The last two are good for a slower pace workout or cool down.

Is there a song that no matter how many times you play it, you don’t get sick of it?
