I’ve recently taken up jogging/running to fulfill my cardio needs. There were a few reasons, but it’s mainly because I’ve given up on stationary cycling. It’s the devil’s workout of choice, and I try to avoid whatever he’s hawking as a general rule.
I typically have a playlist for everything, and I mean everything: sleep, waking up, getting ready, driving, driving during the sunset, driving at night, karaoke gold, single tear, school motivation, a celebration mix for when I finish school next year, and I’ll stop there because you are now witness to my playlist-making manic state. But I never set aside music that would work for running. I was always of the mindset that unless there was a basketball in my hands to dribble or Cynthia Weinstein was chasing me, there was no point to the activity. So now that I kinda enjoy it, my need to set music to every facet of my life has forced me to create a solid list that will make me victoriously fist pump while I run. So far I have… Chaka Khan’s “I Feel For You” and Rod Stewart’s “Lost In You“. Yeah, I think I need help with this one.
