Just wanted to pop back in to give you the run-down for the day…
I completed a (very) sweaty 30 minute walk/run today- I actually ran a little more than the last time, progress!!
Even the road worker guy directing traffic at the end of my street was cheering me on 🙂 He made the running motion with his hands and feet and gave me the thumbs up- ha, guess they are paying attention. Oh well, it’s a challenge now, I will run longer next time!
In case you were wondering what the post title meant, I wanted to touch a bit on playlists. Without music in my ears while walking, running, stretching, whatever- I think it would be sooo difficult. Music pushes me, especially fun, beat pumping songs while running. It’s a must. Right now, since I’m in a beginner’s fast-paced-walk phase, I’m really digging my Phoenix station on Pandora. I love that station! It’s the perfect mix of songs with a steady beat and quick bursts for picking up the pace during my walks. For full on running however, I think I prefer more of a dance/pop station. Something that makes me want to drop it likes it’s hot.. well, you get what I mean. What’s your favorite station? What’s on your playlist? I love that Icona Pop song “I Love It“… gets me every time.
Alright, I’m going to go shower, eat some lunch, and get moving. I have a little leo shopping for Meredith to do today- for those of you who are wondering, leo means leotard in dance-talk, ya, I’m a cool mom like that. The girls have a rhythmic gymnastics recital today, so I wanted to see if I could find something fun for her to wear, although this is a pretty laid back class, so there is no dress requirement. I’ll fill you in on all the details tomorrow- enjoy the rest of your day,
