Depending on the day, my mood - even the weather, different songs will get me through a tough part in my run. It may be that I need to kick it up a bit and run a little harder; or it may be that I’ve started off too quickly and I need to slow it down to keep my pace. And though I’ve got thousands of songs on my IPod (okay, I’m exaggeration, only about 250) that I put in specifically for working out there are just a few that really do the trick when I need them to.
And I figured I'd share them here with "you".
Metalingus (Edge’s WWE theme) – Alter Bridge
Fighter - Christina Aguilera
(Those two songs I sometimes listen to over and over and over again. They just keep me inspired...)
I'm not Afraid - Remy Zero
She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult
The Time of My Life - David Cook (preferably the version from American Idol’s finale; I have both studio and live, but to hear the emotion in his voice from the live presentation – that really makes me feel inspired.)
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
Christmas in Sarajevo - TransSiberian Orchestra
Fuel - Metallica
Cowboy - Kid Rock
Me & Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
No Air - Jordin Sparks/Chris Brown
Wannabe - Spice Girls
Boston - More than a Feeling
Kryptonite - Three Doors Down
Carry on my Wayward Son - Kansas
London Bridges - Fergie
Shipping off to Boston - Dropkick Murphys
What music motivates you, whether it's while working out - or just in general?
