While some days I like to enjoy the quite and peacefulness of an early morning run, some days I just need some tunes to get me pumped up and motivated.
I normally have no issues motivating myself to get out the door, but everyone has those days when they need an extra push. Today was definitely one of those days.
My running tunes are always dependant on my mood and what kind of run I’m doing. If it’s a long and/or slow recovery run, I like music with a slower beat to help me keep the pace down. If I’m doing a faster run or interval workout, I’m all about the fast paces, pump me up music.
I had a slow recovery run planned for today, so I crafted a random playlist to keep me entertained.
A lot of times, I just put my iPod on random and I listen to whatever comes on. I have thousands of songs and I don’t even listen to 25% of them!
Today I used the genius feature on iTunes and it generated a playlist for me in about 5 seconds. Apple, I love all of your products.
What songs are you loving right now? How do you pick your playlist?
