Current 5k Playlist

Good afternoon!

Can you believe that today is the last day of September?! I can’t believe how fast the year is flying by! I think that October 1st might be one of my favorite days of the year. To me, it’s the day that kicks off the holiday season.

It’s October, which means that it’s the month of Halloween fun (my family does a lot of Halloween related activities), then Thanksgiving isn’t too far away, and finally it’s the Christmas season! I absolutely love this time of year.

Yesterday

Yesterday morning, we stopped for a quick last-minute breakfast at Panera. I had my heart set on a pumpkin bagel, but then I saw their new steel cut oatmeal with apple chips and toasted pecans and my dreams of a pumpkin bagel went out the window.

A little blurry but at least it tasted delicious :)

The oatmeal was definitely a good choice. But I will have that pumpkin bagel one day.

Today’s Workout

  • Stretching – 10 minutes
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

I plan on running Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday (5k) of this week but my quad is killing me today. I am going to see how it is in the morning and then will decide if I should run or not. I don’t want to push it before the 5k but I also want to stay on my running schedule.  I guess my other option would be to run Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll see how my quad and hip feel.

After BodyPump, I had a caramel fudge thinkThin bar.

I like caramel but I don’t love it. The bar was good, but I still prefer the peanut butter flavor.

Lunch

Lunch this afternoon was a bagel thin with egg whites and provolone cheese, carrots and hummus, and pineapple.

5k Playlist

I have been working on playlist for the 5k on Sunday. I am the kind of person that can run with or without music. It doesn’t really bother me to run without music but I do notice that I tend to run a bit faster when I am listening to music.

I hate wearing an armband though so I just use Danny’s old iPod shuffle and clip it to my waistband. Even then, I sometimes end up ripping it off and carrying it in my hand by the end of the race.

Here’s my playlist so far:

  • Lady Gaga – Applause
  • Scooter – Black Betty
  • Jay Z featuring Justin Timberlake – Holy Grail
  • Sam & The Womp – Bom Bom
  • Nero – Crush on You
  • Scooter – J’adore Hardcore
  • Lorde – Royals

The Royals song by Lorde is currently by favorite song. I love it. Sometimes I listen to it on repeat over and over…which means I’ll probably be sick of it soon, but as of now I love it.

A few of the songs are from the new BodyPump release, but they make good running songs. :)

Have a great afternoon!

  • Caramel, chocolate, or peanut butter?
  • Favorite holiday?
  • What is currently your favorite song?

  1. I do that same thing of listening to a song over and over until I get sick of it. Love Royals!

  2. susie

    I love your playlist!

  3. My current fave song to run to is Pompeii by Bastille. It’s a good pace song. Also Demons by Imagine Dragons.

    Do you use a foam roller? You might find it helps your quad. I have to do it a couple times a day and it helps all my aches and pains.

  4. ran a half this weekend and nearly had royals on repeat for 13.1 miles- well not really but I love that song!

    The thin bars taste too much like a candy bar to me! Will never buy them again! Too good!! Don’t have the self control to have a box in the house. How bad is that????
