don't judge.

First, Happy Halloween!  I hope Ryann is feeling good enough to do a little bit of trick-or-treating tonight.  She makes such a cute little penguin, I want to show her off.  Ha :o).  Moving on...

Don't judge my music selection that is.  I suppose if you really want to know what I listen to while I run I'll tell you.  Just be warned, most of it is pretty inappropriate.  But more or less I want to feel like I'm rockin' out in a club (because that is totally something I do ALL THE TIME.  ha!).  It is what definitely gets me moving!  Ok not all of them are raunchy, but it is definitely quite the eclectic group of songs.  So here you, go, everything on my workout playlist...

Of course I'm always open to new suggestions, but pretty much I have to want to dance to it.  Or it has to be entertaining and have a great beat.  Some people choose their running music based on beats per minute (bpm).  If you are aiming for a certain mph, the bpm can help you keep your stride.  But I REALLY REALLY have to like the song in order to distract myself from the running.

Actually on Friday I ended up covering 3.5 miles outside without any music.  My headphones were refusing to stay on my head so I just gave up.  I finished the workout in 32 minutes (and this included about .5 miles of walking), so I think not having the music actually made me faster.  Mostly because I was really bored :).

Thanks for posting your playlist! This is exactly the kind of music I like to listen to while running. Now I've got some new stuff to add to my playlist for my 10k this weekend. Thanks!

Love it. I'm the same way...er, I was. It's been a while since I've gone on a run! My playlist has lots of black eyed peas (pump it, anyone?) and even some leftovers from high school (I can't help it, I just really like Good Charlotte!). The louder the music the less I think about how much I hate running! You said your headphones fell off - have you ever tried these? I love them.

I have a lot of these on my workout playlist too. I like LMFAO, Britney, and Kanye at the gym. I also have the Girl Talk "All Day" album which is awesome as it moves along so fast, it makes an hour fly by!

Happy Halloween! I usually find that music while running makes me go a little faster :)
