Race for life Diary PT 3 – my workout playlist and progress

It’s certainly been a while since my last Race for life update* – you can sponsor me here , 10% of all orders for the next month are also going towards Race for life, why don’t you sign up? but in that time I have officially join my local gym and have been trying my hardest to go everyday, running between 3k – 8k a day which alongside eating healthier  has resulted in a stone weightloss, yippie, but less hip width means its not so great when you’re running on the tread mill and you have to tug your trousers back up the whole time, should probably go shopping for some new ones are some point. Training has been great for gaining my confidence running, I’m not a natural runner – look at the size difference so its just getting use to being comfortable running and not worrying I look like a tomato.

Current daily exercise is quite simple before I head to the Studio and work, I do 5K on the tread mill, then 2,000 meters on the rowing machine, cycle a couple of miles then do legs and arms. Nothing too crazy I really need to do a lot more upper body work.

Anyway the race is just over two weeks away and I wanted to share with you my current play list for running to and working out. The music on my phone is just rubbish so I recently snapped up a few new songs to play while running, the louder the better, also the more sassy the better.

 Current running play list 

– Katy Perry Dark Horse

– Beyonce – Why don’t you Love me 

– X Ambassadors – Love song drug song

– Taylor Swift the whole of 1989

– Kiesza – Hide away the Ben Howard version is just as good

– Paloma Faith – Can’t Rely on you

-Plan B stay too Long 

– Friendly Fires – Blue Cassette 

– Mark Ronson – Uptown funk

Probably not the most exciting, but these keep me motivated and focused while running so you won’t catch me complaining. What’s on your work out playlist?

    Might sound silly but I mostly go for beats/house like Martin Garrix, potrunner, …
    The stronger the better 🙂
