Since moving to Brazil I have taken up running, but this week I found myself back to square one after having a break of nearly four months.
In an effort to get motivated I decided that a new workout playlist would be just what the doctor ordered. I really want to get back to running 3k three times a week but right now it seems like a distance and soewhat unreachable goal.
After much research on the net I felt totally uninspired when I found out that the most popular workout song was Eye of the tiger - come on! That would make me burst out laughing, not at all what you need when running - oxygen is already at a premium.
I needed some serious help and input...
It's times like these when networking and social interaction sites like Facebook and Twitter really come into their own. I asked my friends for some suggestions on which tunes to add and what came out was an ecclectic selection that was a mixture of favourite songs, life references and new discoveries. I am still working on my list and I believe that it should be an ever-evolving creation as my boredom threshold is very high and I need all the motivation I can get when it comes to excercise!
My new playlist, with a little help from my friends now looks something like this:
Start Me Up - Rolling Stones
Mina Do Condominio - Seu Jorge
Oh (Plugs Remix) - We Are Band
A Galera - Ivete Sangalo
Without Words - 4hero
Everybody - Martin Solveig
Should I stay or should I go - The Clash
Running up that hill - Kate Bush
Feeling for you - Cassius
Dance - ESG
(You're love keeps lifting me) higher and higher - Jackie Wilson
Put your hands up for Detroit - Fedde Le Grand
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Fame - Irene Cara
Needy Girl - Chromeo
Magic Love - Bent
Donkey Ride - Mr Scruff
You can't turn me away - Sylvia Striplin
Cool out - Leroy Houston
