A couple days ago I decided it was time to start running again. I was into it for about a month last year, then got a cold so I stopped and then the weather got cold and I officially shut it down. Now I already missed the ideal restart time in the spring due to massive laziness and I realize I'm getting remotivated right during the hottest and most awful time of the year. But I think I like running when it's hot out. Makes me feel like I'm working harder.
Anyway, point is that I've got that iPod nano sneaker doohickey gathering dust and I need a new jogging playlist. No surprise that what I was listening to last September is not necessarily gonna work again for me now. So this is what I came up with last night:
(Note that I put this together last night with the full intention of getting up this morning and running, and ended up going back to sleep for an hour. Last night was a tough one tho. Tomorrow will be better...)
Sia - Breathe Me
Seriously, just hearing this song makes me wanna run.
Spoon - The Ghost of You Lingers
This is a weird one, but it's kinda trippy and spacey, but with a beat. I'm usually pretty out of it during the first couple songs anyway so I like that.
Pinback - Good To See
Nice, light, and upbeat.
Tegan and Sara - Nineteen
Just a good song.
The Spanish Morrissey song
Don't know what this is actually called. It's that Spanish song that just goes Morrissey Morrissey Morrissey for the chorus. Starting to pick up the pace a bit...
EL-P - The Overly Dramatic Truth
Now we're starting to really get going...
Justice - D.A.N.C.E. (MSTRKRFT Remix)
MSTRKRFT - Easy Love
Quad City DJs - Come on Ride the Train (MSTRKRFT Remix/Mashup)
If I can even make it this far, These three should set a good pace.
Kings of Leon - McFearless
One final rockin push...
Black Lips - Hippy Hippy Hurrah
And the triumphant warmdown.
I don't think I can make it this far in reality, but I'll set to go 3 miles or something and see how it goes. This also all might be a huge mistake, cause if I remember right, I do much better with more chilled out songs rather than these fast paced jams. Those usually just stress me out and make he tired faster. May have to cut that whole MSTRKRFT part altogether to keep it at a better pace.
