I have pretty varied taste in music, read bad taste in music. I like the charts, I like old school like Rod Stewart and Elton John, and as embarrassed as I am to admit it, I like boybands. I might have tickets to see Westlife in May. I may also have downloaded One Direction for my run on Sunday. Actually I stand by my decision to download One Direction as ‘What makes you beautiful’ is a great pick me up running song. It came on my ipod just after I had to stop to tie up my laces and definitely made me pick up the pace.
Songs that kept me going during my 5k on Sunday:
One Direction- What makes you beautiful
Lady Gaga- Marry the night
Lady Gaga- Poker face
Adele- Set fire to the rain
Adele- Rumour has it
Katy Perry- Firework
Florence and the machine- Dog days are over
All quite cheesy fast paced songs that keep me motivated to run fast. On runs where I push myself speed wise I like to crank up the volume on my ipod and concentrate on the music, and putting one foot infront of the other. On slower, more relaxed runs I tend to choose music that matches the pace, with Coldplay, Leona Lewis and Adele on my playlist. I find that downloading new running/workout music is a great motivator to exercise, so next time you are feeling uninspired, get onto itunes, download a couple of tracks and get moving!
