I HATE running. HATE it. Always have. But recently I’ve been getting bored with my workouts and I wanted to change things up a bit. So I have started running a mile whenever I can. Just a mile though. Baby steps. Don’t want to get too excited. It’s been a very hard challenge. After my first run I couldn’t even walk. I was limping around work more than the lady with the walker.
I’ve been running for a couple weeks at my gym on the treadmill even though I have a gym at my work. This past week I finally decided to put my lunch hour to good use and hit up the gym. It was pretty awkward – not going to lie. We have one gym rat in the office and he’s ALWAYS there. It almost feels like his gym and like I should have knocked before I went in! Anyway, that first day I forgot my headphones. The office gym rat blasts heavy metal and Nickelback from the stereo – out loud. So I was stuck there running on the treadmill listening to his awful, non motivating music. That run was THE worst. The next day I double and triple checked that I brought my headphones, and that turned out to be a MUCH easier run! It’s got to be the soundtrack!
Here’s my top 10 favorite songs to listen to currently:
1. Lean On – Major Lazer
2. Renegades – VHS
3. Crash and Burn – Thomas Rhett
4. Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon
5. Sugar – Maroon 5
6. Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding
7. Somebody – Natalie La Rose
8. Dirty Work – Austin Mahone
9. Outside – Calvin Harris
10. I Want You to Know – Zedd
What songs are you listening to for your running soundtrack?! I’d love suggestions!
