I officially signed up for the 5K at the Illinois marathon this week. I’m planning on running it. I’ve decided I won’t be a complete failure If I don’t run the whole thing, but I really, really, really want to be able to say I can run a 5K. I’m not a runner at all, but I feel the need to have goals and at least try to accomplish them.
Lately, I’ve been doing a combination of Couch to 5K workouts and my own “modified” workouts. For my modified workouts, I listen to some of my own music, some current favorites include:
- Womanizer, Britney Spears (don’t hate)
- Shake It, Metro Station
- In the Middle, Jimmy Eat World
- Single Ladies, Beyonce
But the *best* song for me right now is Los Angeles by Sugarcult. I couldn’t find an actual video online, but this homeade one is pretty good. The beat of this song is perfect for running and the “C’mon, C’mon” at the end inspires me to keep going.
