Day 146 – 147 – Top Running TracksNovember 19th, 2013 by David
I had a weekend of relaxation, for the last 3 weeks I have not really had the opportunity to breathe, I have been either travelling or working so I took full advantage of the free weekend and rested and slept as much as I could to finally get over this cold that has been lingering for the last week and a half. I took the time to update my playlists on my MotoActv ready for the coming’s week training. Whilst sorting my playlist I thought it would be a great idea to show you my favorite motivational tracks and see whether they can help push you on during your training program. I am currently in a bit of a hip hop phase, after spending time with my brother in the US I was exposed to some new artists and music that I hadn’t heard of before. I had been accused by my brothers previously of having an iPod like my dad’s so it was about time that I updated my music collection to include some more modern tracks! So here we go my current top 5 tracks are as follows:
- Wale – Ambition – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7ZbM7ak8uw
- Villuminati – J Cole – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2rd566LRWw
- Hold On – Skepta – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5iqtQLm-BM
- I’m not a star – Rick Ross – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIwRxKk_lQI
- Good Feeling – Flo Rida – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OnnDqH6Wj8
These tracks are great for getting you pumped and giving you a boost when you need it! Give them a try and see if you want to include them into your collection however I will warn you that some of them have some choice language in
them so won’t be to everyone’s taste!
Preparation and strategic planning are key components in successful execution and I have extended this concept to my running and training gear, whether it is running shoes, music or even an anti-chaffing stick. It essential that you have done your research and have covered as many identifiable risks as possible. One of my problems is going to be running indoors on a treadmill for extended periods at a time during the harsh Kazakh winter so it is imperative that I try to reduce boredom as much as possible which is why I have invested in a significant number of new albums. It is all about trying to make it as easy as possible for yourself, and when you are faced with a huge challenge like losing 180 pounds and running the London Marathon then you have to do everything you can to make a difference.
What are your top
running tracks? Why do they motivate you to go the extra distance?
