It’s Sunday night (booooo), which means it’s time to add a new to the playlist (yayyyy). Having fun with our Motivational Music Monday conversations and, even though I just posted a blog update yesterday, I’m looking forward to week 12 of our music picks.
Not too much to report this weekend, yard work and a rolling hill 12 mile run around the north end of Lake Stevens. Run volumes are starting to build as I’m roughly following a Higdon marathon bridge plan for 8 weeks between races – customized a bit for my own pacing and hill workouts. Just under 6 weeks to marathon number 8 at Rock ‘N Roll Seattle.
Let’s move on the tunes…
MMM #1: OneRepublic – Love Runs Out
MMM #2: Eminem – ‘Till I Collapse
MMM #3: Pink Floyd – Run Like Hell
MMM #4: Drowning Pool – Bodies
MMM #5: Flo Rida – In the Ayer
MMM #6: Lady Gaga – Poker Face
MMM #7: DNCE – Cake by the Ocean
MMM #8: Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run
MMM #9: Alient Ant Farm – Smooth Criminal
MMM #10: Prince – Little Red Corvette
MMM #11: Train – 50 Ways to Say Goodbye

Week 12 Selection
This one is relatively new…to me. Last week, I mentioned we had a great day out that included a Seattle Sounders match. The team took the field to an awesome song that really got the crowd cranking – at Sounders games it really doesn’t take much, but this was a perfect song as the team lined up. I hadn’t really heard this song before but it totally resonated and has since been added to the training tunes playlist. Love the edgy grinding crunch and has a perfect “getting this done” feel to it.
X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons – Jungle
