My running playlist – What’s yours?
I feel good. I have lots of reason to be proud of myself, but I forget it all the time, while I am always ready to be harder with myself.
I am being consistent with my training, not excusing myself for lack of time or bad mood. Sometimes my very very (very) short experience takes me in the wrong direction, but I’m working on it.
In two and a half months of training I have already learned a lot, not only about running, but about my body and even more important, my mind.
The fact that I used to see as the most negative (me running on the treadmill) it’s actually becoming my strength. In fact I read somewhere that running in the treadmill allows you to do something you cannot do running outside: training your mind.
I soon realized that my lack of confidence wasn’t only caused by the fact that I have never run before, but most of it was coming simply from my head. Training your mind and show it that you can actually do it it’s becoming my most important drive. Almost as important as my playlist.
I can not run without my music. Of course I have my “running “ playlist, and there are few songs that physically help me to run better, especially when my mind and body start to discuss whether or not they should stop.
Here my top ten playlist:
- Waka Waka (Time for Africa) – Shakira
- Release me – Agnes Carisson
- PYT (Pretty Young Thing) – Michael Jackson
- When love takes over – David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland
- Get low – Flo Rida feat. T-Pain
- Like a G6 – Far East Movement
- One day in your life – Anastacia
- L’aiuola – Gianluca Grignani
- Raise your glass – Pink
- È più forte di me – Ligabue
