I decided this morning that if I was going to do the whole blog thing, I should have some consistent theme to it. Otherwise I imagine people might get bored with me pretty quickly. SO, welcome to the playlist of the week. You’ll never know when it’s going to happen, but it will happen. As Alice Walker said, “Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.”
When I started college, I really wanted to stay in shape and not gain the dreaded Freshman 15. However, I was really afraid I would lack the discipline needed to take the mile long trek to the gym and back to my dorm every day. Amazingly, I’ve been working out four days every week.
I chose running for 2 reasons. Everyone on my dad’s side of the family is a runner (my grandfather, who is either nearing his 80th birthday or is in his 80s, still runs every morning) and also because I have always wanted to do a 5K. A mile at our Rec Center is six and a half laps around the track. I’ve just run my first mile and I’m hoping to run/walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in October!
Well, I don’t know about y’all, but I have to have music when I run. It’s a requirement. Going in circles around a track gets really boring really fast when you don’t have music. So I have compiled a playlist to pump me up when I walk/run each day. You can view it below. I hope you enjoy it! (Oh, and don’t judge me for having Hips Don’t Lie on there. Try running to it. You’ll become a Shakira fan.)
PS – I went to the Rec twice today because I’m awesome. Just kidding. I went running this morning and I went to “yoga” tonight. I say “yoga” in quotes because this class was a j-o-k-e joke. It should have been called the “Easy Stretching Class.” The instructor couldn’t even do some of the moves. Instead, he opted to tell us three times about how he’d had his leg internally reconstructed out of stainless steel twice. I would have felt a lot more sorry for him had he not had a mullet ponytail. Leg injuries are never an excuse for bad hair. The end.
