So, I received this lovely question from Healthy Adelphi (check out her site...tons of cool info on foods, exercise, life)
Q: "What is on your ipod playlist?"
A: EVERYTHING! I have three main playlists that I rotate between when I don't want to just hit shuffle and run. I update my playlists probably once every two weeks when I heard new music on the radio that gets me jammin. If I wanna dance to it at a club..I want to run to it as well. You can always go to the ITunes page and look at the most downloaded songs or look up Billboard top 100.
Playlists 1 and 2 highlights:
Circus: Britney Spears
Just Dance: Lady Gaga
Single Ladies (personal mantra): Beyonce
Live Your Life: TI and Rhianna
Love Story: Taylor Swift
Viva la Vida: Coldplay
One Step at a Time: Jordin Sparks
Une Derniere Dance: Kyo (in French)
Let It Rock: Kevin Rudolf
Rain on Your Parade (love this song): Duffy
Poker Face: Lady Gaga
I Hate This Part: Pussycat Dolls
Crack the Bottle: Emminem
Top of the World: Pussycat Dolls
Pourque tu m'aimes encore: Celine Dion (French)
Those are some highlights. Each playlist is anywhere from 1.5hours to 2hours
This is called, YOU CAN DO IT. Sometimes you need these jams to get you through the toughies. I made it for my half marathon for go to instant adrenaline:
Right Round: Flo Rida
Top of the World
Rock Star: N.E.R.D
Rain on Your Parade
Crack a Bottle
Dead and Gone: TI and Justin Timberlake
Blame it on the Alcohol: Jamie Foxx
Soon to be added for my run on Sunday:
Cookie Jar: not sure who sings this
Kiss me through the phone: Soulja Boy (what what)
Love Sex Magic: Ciara and JT
For cool down and an early morning run, nothing beats Death Cab for Cutie.
Hope this helped!
Q: What kind of shoes to you wear?
A: Excellent question. I HEART Asics. They are the only shoes I will wear. I pronate inwards, so I have the the gel ones for stability. More importantly, it is important to have a good sock. When my sock isn't cushioned enough, I can feel the shoe and it's uncomfortable for me. So, buy a nice sock with structure...not some flimsy thing.
See you all later xo
