Running playlist and I now have to throw away a shirt.

May 8, 2013

Since today was a rest day from running (I did do my performance stretching DVD and some core work… who am I?) I decided to spend my running time this morning making a playlist with some of my favorite running songs.

My running music is kind of a big deal to me and this is something near and dear to my heart. I mainly choose my favorite running songs because of their fast beat. If the song makes my legs want to run faster than I automatically love it and some of the songs have lyrics that just make me want to push harder. Some are old and some are new but they all make me want to run.

Light pink backg

And my favorite cool-down/stretch/sing at the top of my lungs in the car song:

Just Give Me a Reason by Pink

Brooke and I got ready for the day and I am glad I have photographic evidence of a shirt that I used to own. See this white shirt? It was my first time wearing it and seconds after the photo something happened to it (I will not go into details) but no amount of laundry detergent and bleach will be able to save it from what Brooke did to it:)

Her leg rolls make me so happy.

We had a date to go meet at my favorite lunch restaurant in the world (you have separate lunch and dinner favorite restaurants too).

I was really happy because as I was making my salad two girls complimented me on my amazing salad building technique. It feels good to be recognized for something I have spent hours of my life practicing.

Brooke enjoyed the food also and will write a formal review of her meal once she wakes up from her nap.

Megan (she seriously needs to start a blog), Megan and Ashley. It hurts how much I have been missing these girls and I am still offended that they didn’t agree to move out to California with me.

Favorite LUNCH restaurant?

If you had to choose between running without music or running without a garmin (or distance tracking app)… what would you choose?

-Running without a garmin, I love my music too much.

Rest day, running day or cross-training day for you?

Any songs to add to the running playlist?

Trisha May 8, 2013 at 1:48 pm

My baby girl wore the same shirt as Brooke today. If you lived in Iowa, I’m sure they would be best friends.

Running without music. That would be easy since I already run without music. Today is a running and yoga day for me. I slacked off this morning which means I need to find the motivation to run tonight. We will see!

Ahhh some times but only when I’m swimming. If I’m ruinnng/walking I’m usually counting down the minutes until I’m done. I enjoy just going for a long leisurely swim without any time constraints or having to push myself.

Adriana @Laced Up With Lipstick May 8, 2013 at 1:52 pm

I love Brookers thighs! Baby rolls are the best! My favorite lunch place is one back home called La Mexicana, hands down best food ever! It depends I can run a race without music but not a garmin. The atmosphere and people in the race make it enough for me. If I’m by myself I need music, I could totally track my distance by the minutes of music I listen to. Running day, taper week. I have a half marathon on Saturday. Machine Head by Bush, I know it’s an oldie but it’s so good!

Jen May 8, 2013 at 1:52 pm

That would be a hard decision…I love both my devices. I actually used to always run without music….not sure why or how but I never ran with music…now I think I might get bored!
I ran but kinda slow. I did a speed day Monday and I am actually still sore!
Those breadsticks look so yummy!!!

Elise @ Expeditions of Elise May 8, 2013 at 1:55 pm

I’d rather go without music because unless I know a route by heart, I never know my mileage exactly without my watch! I like to be able to run without music sometimes because I feel like it’s a mental challenge to be able to run without music.

My perfect running playlist now must include “I Love It” by Icona Pop. It’s the ultimate running song!

Reply

Wendy @ New Moms Talk May 8, 2013 at 1:58 pm

I run without a music and without a Garmin. I just prefer to run and listen to my body, my surroundings, etc. Plus it’s safer that way when I’m running on trails in the mountains or hiking with our daughter who’s in a pack attached to me.

Today was a rest day, but a busy DIY day. I might have finally succeeded in making a great onesie for Susanna for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July which means that the race onesie might actually be a reality in the near future!

Nicole @ Work in Sweats Mama May 8, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I run ‘naked’ too! When I run outside, I don’t want the music to distract me from my surroundings. I think I’d get too hung up on Garmin stats. However, if Garmin wants to give me one to change my mind, I’m game!

Reply

Amanda @ .running with spoons. May 8, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Now THAT is a salad – nice solid base leading up to a mountain of deliciousness. You definitely got skills, girl! ;)

I’m pretty sure I’d take music above any other electronic workout device. It’s nice to be able to zone out to the beat and not worry about numbers, but just focus on enjoying the experience. I’d have to add Remember The Name by Fort Minor onto your list though. Definitely a song that pumps me up.

I’d for sure leave my run tracking app and just have music. But today I actually went without either and it was really nice too. My favorite running song is “the middle” by Jimmy Eat World. I love the tempo and the lyrics are helpful for hard runs!!

Elizabeth @ My Neon Running Shoes May 8, 2013 at 2:05 pm

As you know I don’t wear a garmin or headphones… I am weird I know! Call me lame but I think my favorite lunch restaurant is chick fil a. There spicy chicken sandwich/lemonade combo is unbeatable. Miss you friend!!! Brooke is getting cuter all the time. Noah’s going to be in love :-)

Reply

Nicole @ Work in Sweats Mama May 8, 2013 at 2:16 pm

Chick-fil-a Spicy Chicken Sandwiches are the best! I worked at a Chick-fil-a when I was in high school, and I can confirm that the lemonade is made fresh every day. I cut a LOT of lemons in my day!

My favorite lunch restaurant is a local deli.

Well I don’t run with music or a Garmin…just a stopwatch, so I guess I wouldn’t have to give either up. But today is a rest day for me.

Andrea @mainerunnergirl May 8, 2013 at 2:12 pm

I usually run with a friend so I don’t use music but during a race I need music! I love Jason’s Deli for lunch but we don’t have one anywhere near us!

Reply

Koryn @ High Heels & Healthy Alternatives May 8, 2013 at 2:12 pm

I’m not sure if I have a fave lunch restaurant since I normally pack my own lunches. ;-) I’ll go with Panera though!

And the next is easy – I most def. would rather run without a garmin (esp since I don’t have one yet – haha). But either way, I love music Too Much.

And I’d add Hezekiah Walker “99 1/2″ to the mix. It’s the MOST applicable gospel song for running Ever! Love it! One of the lines from the chorus…

“Lord, I’m running… trying to make 100 because… 99 and a half Won’t Do!”

Keeps me pushing for my best! ;-)

Nicole @ Work in Sweats Mama May 8, 2013 at 2:17 pm

I’m really loving Mumford & Sons right now! I don’t run with music, but I have Pandora streaming while I work. Love it when Mumford & Sons come on. Today was a cross-training day in the pool. Have been feeling great in the pool lately. If only I could convince myself to get out on my bike, I’d be ready for some tri action!

Tara May 8, 2013 at 2:18 pm

I rather run without a Garmin for sure! Ill just have my Nike app running in the background of my iPhone…is that cheating? ;)

I love running to Outkast, most if their songs have such a fast beat it makes me run faster!

Nicole @ Work in Sweats Mama May 8, 2013 at 2:19 pm

P.S. I have so many favorite lunch spots, it’s hard to pick. I try to get out for lunch 1-2 times a week because I work from home and need the human interaction. On Mondays our local Mellow Mushroom has $1 cheese slices, so I love to go there after swimming laps.

I don’t run with a Garmin, so definitely music! I can’t imagine running without it.

Today was the stair mill and I was a hot, sweaty mess. It was gross, yet satisfying all at the same time.

I’m a country fan…so I would say, Blake Shelton’s “Boys ‘Round Here” or Florida Georgia Line “Cruise.”

Dog days are over is my fav! It’s the last song I listen when racing! For fast runs, I’d add I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas).

So catchy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyDUC1LUXSU

Beth @ Running with the Sunrise May 8, 2013 at 3:03 pm

Yummy salad! You’re making me wish I lived near a place Running without a Garmin or music: music for an everyday run, Garmin for a race. I don’t run with music during my training runs because I don’t want to be distracted when I’m out on the roads, and I also think that it makes the motivating effects of music that much more potent when I’m running my races. I also really count on my Garmin for data like splits and distance run on my training runs, so I don’t think I could give that up.

Reply

Nerri @ LaPetiteRunner May 8, 2013 at 3:04 pm

Have you noticed a big difference in your flexibility from when you started? It’s been a few weeks with your coach and stretch-specific training. Did you “feel” a difference right away? Gradual? Notice it in day-to-day movements not just running?

What are YOUR favorite lunch and dinner restaurants?? I’m actually going to Salt Lake City for a couple days in June for work and would love suggestions! I won’t have a car, but am staying right downtown, so hoping to check out some good eats and maybe a hike or two while there.

My favorite lunch restaurant is a place here in Hawaii called Aloha Salads. You would LOVE it. Favorite dinner restaurant… that’s much harder. I have a favorite for each type of restaurant:) Favorite sushi, favorite tapas, favorite French, favorite Italian, favorite Latin American… I love to eat!

My favourite lunch restaurant is Earls (do you guys have that in the USA or is it just a Canadian thing)? They have a chicken, brie, and apple sandwich with fig jelly on it which blows my mind every time. After my half marathon, it was all I wanted. haha

Today was a cross training day, 60 minutes on the cross trainer at the gym and I did a made up crossfit-inspired circuit. It was an awesome workout day!

LOVE so man of those songs on your play list! I friggin JAM to that Pink song when it is on in the car. My kids are SO lucky ;) My favorite running song is All American Rejects ‘Give You Hell’. I have no idea why. It is old. I have heard it a million times. But when it comes up I tend to dance (if outside running) or play the drums (hit the treadmill to the beat) and sing if I am inside….this might explain why I don’t have many running buddies. Wow. Just had my ‘aha’ moment.

I love ‘chick food’ for lunch. Salads and what not. Doesn’t matter where as long as I get a delicious salad. I wanted to marry mine this afternoon I loved it so much. Until I got sick :( But I feel completely fine now. So. Random. And next time we go to lunch I will be following right behind you so you can teach me your mad salad building ways.

I run without my Garmin and headphones occasionally. It is always weird to hear my feet stomp and my breathing.

It was so good to see you today. I just can’t NOT be in a good mood when I am with your happy face. Hopefully Brooke got a good nap to so she will be her happy self again!

How did I miss this post?!?! I am a person by nature and HRG comes right after I make coffee and feed the dogs in the morning.

There’s a seafood restaurant called Poor Phil’s in my town – it’s a very decent seafood place for the midwest (I did live in New Orleans for 3 years so thankfully I know what good seafood is). They have the best beer selection in town, I was pretty depressed by their oysters but they do have super yummy lobster. And the outdoor seating is heavenly in the summer.

Today’s a rest day for me but yesterday (the 8th), I did 4 miles easy on the trail – it was 81 degrees. For midwesterners, that’s really hot for early May!

My favorite song as of late is ‘Are You Tired’ by the US Infantry (not a cool spin on a band name – actually the US Infantry)

Running without music. I actually rarely run with music nowadays. I do run a lot of trails, though, so I ditch the music so I can be aware of what is going on around me more than anything. I just got so used to it that it carried over to all my other runs. I still treat myself to some jams from time to time.

I totally sing that Pink & Fun song VERY loud in my car. I use the RunKeeper app on my iPhone, so I listen to music and track my run. I couldn’t manage without music.
Some of my favorite songs to run to right now are (that you didn’t list):
Castle and And We Danced – both from Macklemore
On My Mind – Mitzi
Brokenhearted – Karmin
Global Concepts – Robert deLong
Where is the Love – Black Eyed Peas
Want U Back – Cher Lloyd
Bulletproof – La Roux
Chick Habit – April March
and…uh….the Party in the USA version from “Pitch Perfect” – don’t ask me why. :)
