Speedwork and New Running Songs

Workout Today: 10 minute warm-up at a 8:47 pace. 6 X 400's at a 6:07 pace. 1 mile at a 8:34 pace.

Workout Tomorrow: Maybe rollerblading.

I was feeling cliche with the "thoughts" I was putting in my posts, so I'll just stick to bold workout updates. I FINALLY got new running tunes today and Icecube definitely helped me put my "back into it." It's amazing what peppy music can do for you. I'm a pretty tame person so don't tell my church congregation I'm a closet Eminem fan. Haha. His songs are so awesome to run to.

Here are 20 tunes that are putting a skip in my step...

(If you don't like hearing potty words like me, you can find a lot of clean(er) versions of some of these songs online...)

1. Don't Stop till You Get Enough - Michael Jackson
2. Fighter - Christina Aguilera
3. Lose Yourself -Eminem
4. Feeling Good - Michael Buble
5. Sing for the Moment - Eminem
6. I'm a Survivor - Destiny's Child
7. The Time of My Life - David Cook
8. Hands Up - Black Eyed Peas
9. Let's Get It Started - Black Eyed Peas
10. My Milkshake - Kelis
11. Thriller - Michael Jackson
12. Numb - Linkin Park
13. Till I Collapse - Eminem
14. Cup of Life - Ricky Martin
15. Sabatoge - Beastie Boys
16. Running - No Doubt
17. Cryin' - Aerosmith
18. The Final Countdown - Europe
19. Loser - Beck
20. Icecube - You Can Do It (Put Your Back Into It)

PS- If any of you watch "The Next Foodnetwork Star" I was so bummed Jeffrey didn't win. The end.


  1. Nice speed workout! Nothing like some good tunes to get you in the groove.

  2. love the food network star... I thought from day one Jeffrey was going to win. I was shocked he didn't.
    I need me some new tunes.

  3. I LOVE your workout mix. I have one too and yes some rap is involved (They just know how to carry a good beat!) When I ran track in high school, I kid you not, I started every practice by blasting IceCube's 'You can do it' and I still love that song and know every single word to it ;) I'll send you my work out playlist too.

  4. good tunes do tend to help make a tough run go by easier/sooner, and hip hop music has a good beat to help keep the pace! eminem's "lose yourself" got me through training for my first marathon; your secret is safe with me ;)

  5. Thanks for sharing the songs. I'm always looking for some more to add.
