When I first started out exercising, I quickly realized that music was going to make or break my workout. I made the mistake of putting my iPhone on shuffle when I walked, and I think I spent more time shuffling through songs than I enjoyed the walk. I finally stopped being lazy and created playlists. I also stopped being such a music snob and downloaded music I wouldn’t normally listen to. You really can’t work out hard and listen to music like Ryan Adams…unfortunately!

After sending song suggestions to a few people, I decided I should share them with everyone. I’ve created three playlists thus far, and really the songs aren’t in any particular order. I always stick my iPhone on shuffle to break up the monotony. My mixes are always work in progress, but I hope you’ll enjoy them! And if you need even more music, I highly recommend the Sun Run series from RockMyRun!
