Back when I was doing C25K, I created a workout mix for my iPhone. That way, I could listen to the music I wanted to while I jogged on the treadmill. Two things I want to say about this post/list:
1) I don't know about you, but I love seeing what music other people are working out to. I may not always like their whole list, but sometimes I grab a song because I think I'll enjoy it too. I have a mix of songs that include country. I know everyone has their genre of preference, but I like a little bit of everything.
p.s. If any of my youth kids, or anyone who doesn't like cursing, sees this, please excuse #13. I've always liked that song and it has a good beat to it. There is a clean version, I'm sure, so if you like it, I suggest getting that one instead :)
2) I also have a tendency to walk or jog in time with the beat of a song. Because of this, there is a very specific order to this mix. I start off with a song I can begin a fast walking pace with before I start actually jogging, and I have a good cool down song at the end. I also have a non-scientific ratio of slower paced songs in the middle of fast paced songs to give me a break.
Without further ado, here is my Workout Mix!
