It is a cold and rainy day and I am finally doing something that has been on my To Do list for ages. I am finally updating the music on my ipod...basically I have not synced it to this new computer since I got it...and I got it last April. Goodness I need to freshen up my playlists. Of course I have 100 things to do (book club is tomorrow and I am seriously behind, but frankly even I read every minute between now and then I will not finish...really need to check the page count next time we pick the books).
I love that I have several different running playlists. It really just depends on my mood. I have a country, a rock, a hip hop, a marathon, a 5k, and a Go Faster. I like to switch things up.
I know not everyone listens to music, but I can't stress enough how much my body responds to the beat even if my brain wanders.
I am on the search for new sneakers. I am not running until then. So for now I am walking. The other day my legs felt like lead. I think a snail passed me. If it wasn't for my playlist I would have stopped altogether.
Some people like the message from the song and some people like the beat. I like both, but if the beat is too slow it doesn't matter how amazing the message is. It doesn't make the cut...except for Chariots of Fire. That ALWAYS makes the cut.
Here are the playlists sent to me. I'm gonna add some to mine.
The strength of this month's mix is its simplicity: big acts, catchy choruses, good vibes. The end of the year is plenty hectic on its own—without additional challenges in the workout music department. So, don't overthink it. Just try a few tracks below, then make a few tracks through the snow.
Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular workout music blog.Missy Elliott & Pharrell Williams – WTF (Where They From) – 120 BPM
Daya – Hide Away – 95 BPM
Grimes – Flesh Without Blood – 156 BPM

In the same way the playlist bridges the musical past and the present, it can also serve as a bridge between the person you were in 2015 and the person you resolved to become in 2016.
