When I started running, I didn't create a playlist on my ipod especially for running just yet. I wanted to experiment on different genres each time I ran just so I could figure out which ones I liked best. A friend suggested Latin music since it worked wonders to keep her energy up but I couldn't say the same for me. Surprisingly, it was the 80's beats that I enjoyed the most, followed by Pop and R&B.
For my longest run to date (Corregidor 10 mile), I decided to finally make a playlist. These run the gamut of genres I like listening to during my runs - 80's, House, Pop, R&B Dance. My ear candy, so to speak.
Anyways, here’s a gathering of the songs (I call it my "power playlist") that I listen to during my runs that I want to share with you. You'll notice that some are slower than normal but it doesn’t really matter as long as something I like is playing.
After a few runs I eventually got bored listening to this playlist. I have yet to update it come 2010 with sick new jams. Any suggestions?
So, now I've been listening to audiobooks. I started with "New Moon". Hehe! I'm gonna limit my audiobooks to chick lit since I still like to leaf through pages of great books.
On other runs, I also listen to podcasts such as "Good Times with Mo" (Funny as hell!), "Morning Coach" (Motivating), "Nike Running" (Interviews of Elite Runners), and "Joel Osteen Ministries"(My Spiritual Fix).
Evidently, I will not survive a run without my ipod. Especially if it's a long one!
Last night, for the first time ever, I ran with a group of people at Bonifacio High Street and McKinley and didn't feel the need to turn on my ipod.
Truly, nothing beats a good conversation when you're running with friends.♥.•:*¨*:•.♥
