It’s been FOREVER since I shared a running mix, mostly because I’ve been listening to the same stuff for so long. I created this one when I started my training and it’s still my go to. My plan was to create a new mix each month of my training but since I’m sharing January’s in February, expect February’s in March. :)
This is a short one, just over 30 minutes. Perfect for me now but I’m going to have to do longer mixes as I start to increase my distances. As always, be warned some songs are explicit. If you click on any song it will launch iTunes. If you click on the image above it will take you to the entire mix.
- Sex On Fire by Kings of Leon
- Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard by Paul Simon
- Jesus Walks by Kanye West
- A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash
- Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But… by Arctic Monkeys
- State Of Love And Trust by Pearl Jam
- Heart of Gold by Neil Young
- Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies
- Everything Hits At Once by Spoon
Total Running Time: 32.3 minutes
As for my run yesterday. It was fantastic! I’m glad I went easy on my knee the last week. There was a little discomfort there around the second mile but it actually went away. I did get new shoes too! So many of you gave me great recommendations but I went with the same pair I had before (Asics Women’s GT-2140). They served me well and I like the way they feel.
So here’s the run. I’m settling into 3-4 miles nicely but I have to admit, thinking about my training and the upcoming 1/2 and full marathons this year SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF ME! I’ve already had a few "What was I thinking" moments. BUT I’m going to keep trucking along. I know I can do this, I just know I can. It doesn’t matter if I have to WALK across the finish line come October I will check marathon off the goal list. *grinishly smiling* just thinking about the feeling I know i’m going to have, makes me smile. :)
