miss ross put out a request for some run tunes and i thought i'd embarrass myself and throw out some of my favorite workout jams. don't judge. let's be honest. it's not always "cool" that gets you movin'. at least i was nice enough to put an asterisk by anything of the country genre. you've been warned.

That's a great playlist! I used to LOVE Emery, though I still listen to them, I'm not as obsessed, but that song is a GREAT run song! P!ATD is great to run to also.

I'm almost embarassed to say I can only run/workout to House/Dance stuff (like Benassi Bros. and the like) and rap. It's a weird combo, but it does it for me!

Thanks SO much for all the advice! I did do 6 this morning, but felt great, hopefully that won't prove to be a vital mistake! We're getting a double whammy of a Nor'easter out here so Sunday should be fun fun fun! And I can't believe I forgot to add froyo to my list of foods I can't stop eating! Adding frozen raspberries to greekyo makes a good froyo also (and adding it to oats, so delish!).

Battlefield is one of my favorites to run to! And I generally keep that fact to myself! Hahaha :-)

Been a loyal reader/lurker for a while now, and I really enjoy both yours and James' blogs. Thought I would comment for once and say so. :-)

Happy training!

You're giving me some good, shameless ideas girl! Funny, I've had "Let the River Run" on my ipod for my warm-ups/cool-downs for my river bed workouts too.

pink "so what im still a rockstar"
ba da bababababa ba da ba ba ba ba (not sure of the name)

X-Country2 said...

Like I told her, Miley Cyrus Party in the USA and Britney Womanizer are some catchy-ass songs. (My taste may be more low brow that yours.)

Great list though. I shall steal several. Thanks!

Pedal Circles said...

Awesome songs!! I have quite a few on my general playlist too.

Kim said...

im with my friend jody - that pink song! but otherwise, i love your list and will probably download half of them to itunes tonight!

Ryan Denner said...

i was listening to 'human' as I was reading this...

I don't judge, i just wear vibram FF's

Jill Costantino said...

OMG - I have had "Battlefield" in my head since I read this! LOL!! The list is great! Whenever I run down a hill I think of how you spread your arms out like you are flying from one of your previouse blog posts.

Sweet list. Amos Lee has some great cool down songs! James Morrison is pretty good too.

GZ said...

JEEEEZ. I am either REALLY OLD or ... no, never mind. I am really old.

Charisa said...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs :) And if anyone ever judges you for what you listen to they are stupid. And dumb. And well, just stupid :)

This is painful to admit but one of the best bits of music that I ever ran to was a Podrunner techno mix that was the same BPM as my tempo run stride rate: 180 BPM and just an hour of beats. Musically, it was just absolutely terrible but man, was it good for getting lost in.
'The Valley Town' by Elliott Brood has been a recent favorite. I'll throw it up on the blog as soon as I get internet access back.
