Tuney Tuesday — Love Runs Out

It was quite by accident that I found this song.  I was loading up my iPod with new tuneage (yes, I’m old, I still use an iPod as opposed to my phone), and I wanted “Counting Stars” by One Republic.  I happened to click on the song right underneath “Counting Stars” which was “Love Runs Out.”  After a few choice words and a minor tantrum for having bought something I didn’t really want, I thought, “Oh what the hell.  I’ll give it a chance.  It’s got a good beat.”  So I added it to my latest run playlist.  Little did I know it would soon become one of my favorite running songs.  Love this!

I made The Motivator listen to it, and it has also turned into one of his favorite running songs. On Sunday, when he was in the midst of running a mere 20 miles, this song came on at about mile 11 or 12… it got him out of a bad place and re-energized him (see his run report here).

And for the nitty gritty details, if you’re into that sort of thing, this song surprisingly is only 120 BPM and will give you a 13:00 pace, which is fast for me, slow for James, but we actually both enjoy running to it.  So, I don’t think it really matters what your pace is… just listen to the beat and let your legs go with the flow…

…Ooo, I’ll be running, I’ll be running, til the love runs out…

What song is your favorite to run to or a good pick-me-up in general?

Tuney Tuesday–Hips Don’t Lie

This morning it was absolutely pouring outside and I had 3 miles to run.  I opted to stay inside and do intervals on the treadmill.  I despise running on the treadmill, but it’s great for intervals because I have to run the set speed or risk flying off, so it pushes my limits which I wouldn’t normally do on the trail.

Regardless,  I wasn’t particularly in the mood to run inside OR outside, but I got on the mill just for the sake of getting on.  I turned on my iPod, and this was the first song to come on.  I don’t usually run to it, but it’s okay to warm up to.  And it definitely worked for me this morning… by the time I was done with my warm-up, I was wishing I could “move like I came from Columbia.”
