More Music and Running Tips

I love DailyMile.  I have made so many new running friends and have been able to have better contact with some older friends!  One of my DailyMile friends (Jo) suggested I check into this website that she stumbled across which outlines good music.  I looked through it and it is definitely worth passing along.  Not to say that I am really good at picking out music but a lot of the songs on here are already on the playlist I gave you!!  There are plenty of other songs on here though...some of which I have never heard of but will definitely check out.  There are also one other song I listen to when I strength train that I didn't mention in the last post.  I also downloaded "The Final Zepp" by Charlie Clouser from the Saw3d soundtrack.  Yes it is a bit creepy, however, if you can get past that, it is the most intense music ever and really makes you want to push all the way to the last rep! 

Music suggestions from Fitness Magazine:

Also, my good friend Molly sent me this article this morning and I thought I would share it.  It is 101 Running tips.  Helps with motivation and such.  I will periodically post some of them on the blog if you don't feel like looking through them but here is one to hold you over: "I believe in using races as motivators. It's hard to keep on an exercise program if you don't have a significant goal in sight." --Bob Greene, personal trainer of Oprah Winfrey
Running Tips:


  1. Glad you liked the training tips! They have been saved in my email since October and I occasionally (ok, maybe a little more than occasionally) refer to them for some extra motivation and inspiration!!

  2. I wanted to contribute a song I added to my playlist a few days ago... will.i.am. I got it from my mama. It's a pretty good tempo and kinda funny.
