Tunes for Thursday: Updating your Workout Playlist!

by Nicole on May 24, 2012


So glad you liked the pasta salad from yesterday AND that many of you share in my deep love for fresh mozzarella. I actually ended up making it again yesterday because I just love it so (too?) much. We had a mini mid-week dinner party (not really) with my mom, stepdad and sister. On the rare occasion my sister gets a day off during the week I try to cook something for her so she can actually enjoy dinner without the rush she usually has. She does SO much for us even with her 6 day a week NBC page job that it’s my very, very small way of saying thank you. (PLUS she put up with me walking around A Pea in the Pod for 40 minutes yesterday and walking out with NOTHING. I should also add she put up with me sulking around JCREW whining that JCREW will be the hardest thing I’ve had to give up for the next 5 months.)

I know, I’m dramatic. Raw fish, alcohol, super hard workouts, sleeping through the night…are all things I’m willing to give up in the name of baby…however JCREW: WHY don’t you have a maternity LINE?

Okay, I’m moving on.

Moving on to workout music. I’ve made it no secret that the majority of my playlists are GLEE related. I should be embarressed probably, but my husband and sister are embarressed enough for me. I do try and balance it out with lots of the iTunes top 10 though, don’t worry. (Probably many of you music lovers are cringing…)

I’m about to update my music with the latest GLEE music from this week, so I figured, why not add some other music before I head out for a run.

Here’s is a list of top ten workout songs in May, according to votes placed at Run Hundred–the web’s most popular workout music blog.

To find more workout songs–and hear next month’s contenders—you can check out the free database at Visitors can browse the song selections there by genre, tempo, and era—to find the music that best fits with their particular workout routine.

Hope this helps you update your iPod!

What is your favorite workout song right now?

Ok…I am so weird when it comes to running music. I definitely LOVE fast and upbeat music…but I also am OBSESSED with slow songs that mean something to mean or remind me of something. I know. Weird that a slow song actually makes me run faster. LOL. Anyway, right now, my son is River Flows in You by Yiruma. Totally instrumental.
PS. Don’t be ashamed of your glee love. I am not a fan of the show but have to say that a lot of my music on my ipod is from glee – I like that they pick songs I know and remake them into a modern, upbeat song. =)

That is awesome! I do a playlist recomendation every thursday. I’ll have to check out that list! I’m also an iTunes top 10 kinda guy. I’ve found some great tunes on there that I would never have found otherwise.
