My Current Music Must-Haves

Date: November 22, 2010 at 10:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 7

Lately, it’s gotten harder and harder to get up with my dreaded 5:30 am alarm. But I recently downloaded a handful of songs that I am loving, and that’s making my morning runs much more fun.

Here’s what I’ve got on my playlist right now:

  • Time Warp — Glee Cast
  • Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor) — Pitbull featuring T-Pain
  • Le Jazz HotGlee Cast
  • Touch a Touch a Touch a Touch MeGlee Cast (Noticing a Glee theme yet?)
  • Turn Around (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) — Flo Rida
  • Start Me Up / Livin’ On a PrayerGlee Cast
  • What’s My Name — Rihanna
  • Singing In the Rain / UmbrellaGlee Cast
  • Liv Tonight — Nelly & Keri Hilson
  • The Time (Dirty Bit) — Black Eyed Peas
  • XR2 — M.I.A.
  • Teenage DreamGlee Cast

So obviously if you’re not a Glee fan, you’re probably not going to be a huge fan of this playlist. But these tunes all have great beats and I sing along to them in my head as I run. Admittedly, sometimes I sing out loud, too.

I had a pretty good run this morning because of a few factors:

  1. I got LOTS of rest last night and all throughout the weekend. Sore throat = gone. Stuffy nose = gone.
  2. It was warm out! It was 48 degrees when I left my apartment. Perfect running weather.
  3. In some sort of Central Park miracle, the bathrooms at the Boathouse were open at 6:20 am! That’s been unheard of, and it was incredibly convenient that they were open this morning. Had they not been, the 7-miler wouldn’t have been nearly as successful.
  4. It’s a short week! How can I be grumpy when I only have 2.5 days of work standing between me, my family and lots of stuffing and gravy?

Happening in my life today: Work, gym (hoping to take chisel and maybe cardio tai box—we’ll see), then home to watch “Dancing with the Stars” (not by choice—I have to blog about it for work). Have a great day!

TELL ME: What are you listening to these days? Got an awesome song recommendations? Please share!
