Treadmill Tunesday

Ah yes, it has returned.  I have been seriously lacking in my lunch run motivation.  So I figured I would pick this back up.  What a better way to hold myself accountable than to regale you with my most recent running play list and thoughts from the Treadmill.

I am not nearly as adventurous this summer in regards to running outside at lunch, the heat is not agreeing with me this year.  (Thank you non-existent thyroid).  So I am keeping myself to the confines of my work fitness center.  Air conditioning and fans rock when it's over a hundred degrees plus with the heat index.

I am trying to get myself back into the three days a week running schedule.  So far I've been averaging two, but I'm getting there.

So what does my current play list look like?  It's definitely a mix of cheesy pop and a healthy motivational dose of aggression.

Go - Pearl Jam (off of Vs) and old favorite.

Get Lucky - Daft Punk (featuring Pharrell Williams)  Pretty much the polar opposite of Pearl Jam.  But so so catchy.  It makes me smile.

Bodies - Drowning Pool - Did I mention aggression?

Kiss the Girl - Ashley Tisdale (or as my daughter calls it - the Candace version).  This makes me

My Songs Know What you Did in the Dark - Fall out Boy.  Still obsessed with this song

Treasure - Bruno Mars  - This one kind of reminds me of an 80's song.  Seems like it should be a Michael Jackson song.

You're a Lie & Standing in the Sun - Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.  I just saw them live recently and the are phenomenal.  Myles Kennedy is an amazing vocalist and the songs just rock.

Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke (featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams).  So totally inappropriate in so many ways.  But it's another catchy 80's sounding song.  At least it is to me.  Maybe I'm just in retro mode.

Freak Like Me - Halestorm - because it's fun and loud and it's very much a take me as I am kind of song.

All My Life - Foo Fighters - Enough Said.

I Don't Want to Stop - Ozzy Osbourne - just seems appropriate

Run - Flo Rida (featuring Red Foo).  An old standby.

So these are some of my current running playlist obsessions.  I like the balance of the whole thing and all the songs motivate me in different ways.  Which is the whole point, right?
