Music is What Makes my Legs Move

I don't know about you, but I can't run without my music. One of my simple pleasures is lacing up my shoes putting in my earphones, pressing play on my Nike+GPS and just going. Sometimes if I am in the mood I'll just hit random and let whatever plays play, but other times I am in a focused mode and need music to keep me going. Here are a few of my favorite songs that keep me going when I sense myself slowing up.

Whip My Hair - Willow Smith: Ok, I know this song has been out for about a year now, but I recently just discovered it. Seriously I know. I love it. If I feel my pace slowing, or I need that extra push because I am pushing for a faster run I put this on and my feet just go, it's great.

Wannabe - Spice Girls: I guess this is the 90's kid in me. I love to hear this song when I run, sometimes I even catch myself trying to dance a little lol. It's so fun and upbeat it makes those moments when I am fatiuged feel not so sluggish. I also do Nike Training Club to this song because seriously it makes me work harder.

We Found Love - Rhianna ft Calvin Harris: Everytime I hear this song I want to dance, when I have my running shoes on it makes me want to sprint. When I ran my 10km last month I had this on at the 50 minute mark and I think it's the only reason I ran the last 5 minutes at the pace I did because it pushed me to push myself.

Titanium - DJ Savana: I was introduced to this song by K and E. At first listen I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Now it's on my iPod even when I am working. If this song doesn't make you want to move I don't know what will.

Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 feat Christina Aguilera: I heard this song for the first time at the Victoria Secret fashion show I was like catchy tune. The next day I was visiting my nephew and when this song came on he went crazy and started dancing around and singing (he's 4 so forgive him) when I am running or doing Nike Training Club and I hear this song I think of my nephew and it brings a smile to my face and gives me a little burst of energy. The best way I can describe it is like when playing Mario Kart and you go over those things that make you go faster well that is me when this song comes on!!!

At the moment these are my favorite running and Nike Traning Club tunes, but I am always looking for new ones. What are your favorite songs to workout too?

  1. I love all of these songs too! They keep you moving for sure. I also love any of the GirlTalk mashups--but for my ears only since they are not all ages appropriate. They are great for long runs or days when you are not really feeling it--they change every 20-45 seconds so it is great for those with music A.D.D. :)
    I love that song BulletProof too.
