I always love asking for new running songs and seeing what’s on people’s playlists. As I was running last week, I realized my workout playlist is dominated by a certain kind of music:
- Lose Yourself – Eminem
- Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen
- Blow – Kei$ha
- Come With Me – Puff Daddy
- Untouched – The Veronicas
- Never Again – Nickelback
- Rolling in the Deep – Adele
- Run This Town/Posthumus Zone – Jay-Z and Rhianna
I’m actually a very happy person in real life! Some people run and work out better with dance music, some with happy music, and some, like me, apparently have anger issues. I think it just helps me focus. We’ll go with that.
Once during a race as I was motoring along, a fellow runner got up in my face, as we were running, cheering like it was no tomorrow… “WOOHOO!!!! ISN’T THIS GREAT!? I LOVE THIS RACE!!”. I’m not joking. She got to Charlotte first and I waved her ahead because I knew she was ready to blow. It was then that I realized… I am not a “happy” runner. I am an angry and focused runner.
What kind of music do you work out to? Have a great long weekend everyone!
