Run, Run, Run Playlist

Initially Ryan and I planned to take Sadie on a hike on one of our favorite trails today. After church and lunch, we started to lose motivation to drive all the way out to the trails and opted to hang around home.

I figured I would update my iPod with some new workout music. As I downloaded some new tunes, I started to crave a run. Once I created a new playlist, I just had to get out there and run and this little lady was happy to be my running buddy. saperia fitness 090 We tackled five miles while I jammed out to this playlist:

playlistHighlights include song #2, song #3 and song #5. Oh and I’m sure you’re completely shocked to see Dynamite on that list, aren’t you? 😉

I’m not gonna lie, I definitely lip-synced the heck out of “Firework” when I was running with Sadie. And “If I Ever Fall In Love Again” may be one of my all-time favorite songs. No surprise that it’s acapella.

Though this playlist was super-motivating, the run itself felt tough. It was so beautiful outside and my mind and insides felt like running, but it was quite obvious to me that I haven’t run in several weeks.

I felt quite sluggish and just plain heavy. It was actually a great motivator to kick my cardio workouts up a notch. I’ve been doing “comfortable” workouts and really want to get back to pushing myself a bit more. I love the interval workouts and want to work those back into my regular regimen. No better time than the start of a new year, huh?


Dinner tonight was a lazy girl’s 004I sliced up a large red bell pepper and served it along side three slices of California Pizza Kitchen’s BBQ chicken 006 CPK seriously makes the best frozen pizzas. The crust is thin and crispy, the toppings are generous and the flavor is on point. YUM.

The rest of the evening will be spent watching Bad Boys on TV before reading The Hunger Games with Ryan. 😀 Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!

    I loooove Firework. At the moment, I can’t get enough of Black Eyed Peas ‘The Time’. I know its kind of terrible but it just makes me want to dance/run.

    Haha, my boyfriend and I spent the evening watching Bad Boys as well. So cheesey, I love it!

    I hear ya on needing to step up the workouts. I ran a 5k on new year’s day and felt like death. It’s crazy how fast our bodies can get out of running shape, I ran a freakin’ marathon 3 weeks ago and 3 miles almost did me in, haha.

    Oh well, now that the holidays are over, I feel like I have a life again, more time to workout and run!

    Love, love, LOVE that you have Mumford and Sons on your running playlist. Such a great pump up song. One of my resolutions is to start commenting on the blogs that inspire me so much… and yours sure does!

    I <3 CPK! And the BBQ chicken pizza is the best! I always listen to some old school Green Day when I run- it's a good mix of calming and pump-up music 🙂 I also find that its so hard for me to get started running, but when I actual get going, I feel like I could go on forever!
