30 Days of Fitness - Day 6

Favorite music to exercise by.

Typically, I download the UK Top 40 for inspiration and incorporate 80% of that into my workout playlists. But in recent weeks I've decided that not all of the songs are good for me to listen while I run. I really like the songs like "Big Hoops" by Nelly Furtado or "Bad Girls" by MIA, but songs like that aren't quick enough. So now I have two playlists: a cardio playlist and a weights playlist. 

I'll just share some of the my top 10 favourite cardio songs:

10. The Alphabeat by David Guetta
9. Call My Name by Cheryl Cole
8. Higher by Taio Cruz, Travie McCoy, Kylie Minogue
7. Rattle by Bingo Players
6. Hot Right Now by DJ Fresh & Rita Ora
5. We Are Young by Tulisa
4. Good Times by Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen
3. Telephone by Lady GaGa and Beyonce
2. Where Dem Girls At? by David Guetta, Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj
1.  Good Feeling by Flo Rida f/Avicii

Anybody have any playlist favourites? Or suggestions for me to include in mine?

  1. Great choices! I love to listen to music and read while I run. If the book doesn't entertain, the music does.

    1. I can honestly say I've never tried reading while I run. That seems to require more coordination than I have, haha.

      I did contemplate listening to an audio book once, but at the time I was listening to the Lord of the Rings and decided against it.
