Playlist are a must have to my workouts. They offer motivation and keep me going when I feel myself getting tired. Some songs are chosen just for the beat, some for the lyrics but each make you want to move.
I've used Pandora set to fun fitness a few times, loved that. I haven't tried Spotify yet. Have you? And I'm definitely not one who can listen to podcasts or nothing at all. I can not hear myself breathing. If I hear myself breathing, I totally psych myself out. I sound like I'm on mile 20 when I'm barely clearing two.
I shuffled songs around to find a 40 minute playlist and since we must always have some JT action, there's an 8 minute cool down. 40 minutes of music will get you through a 12 minute mile 5K. The beat/tempo of these songs may encourage you to run around a 9 minute mile. Hope you like some of these songs!
I just found out about this Lolo App and it sounds amazing! You can use the music it has available or import your own music into the app. From there you can adjust the tempo! So if you're in love with a particular song but know that it's far to slow for your cycle routine, elliptical run, etc. this app lets you speed it up. All the reviews are great and it sounds like it comes with a "trainer" who reminds you of key things like shoulders down, belly button in, chin up. I'm thinking about giving this app a try. It's priced at 3.99.
Have you heard of this app or tried it before?
What songs are must haves in your playlist?
P.S. There are now 40+ of us signed up for the virtual 5K! I was so excited to see that! WooHooo!!!
