Spring Running Music Playlist

 

It’s Spring! Time to get outdoors, no more treadmill for me (yes I am a fairweather runner)!  So I’ve put a new running music playlist together.  Some tunes are upbeat, some are on this list just because I like them!

I’m trying to increase my speed so I’m busy looking for inspiration and ideas on Pinterest at the moment; hopefully I’ll be posting something soon!

All my workout music is available to purchase on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon and Spotify.

Why try a 30 day fitness challenge?

Why try a 30 day fitness challenge?

Have you ever tried doing a fitness challenge for 30 days?  This year I decided to make a new list of goals to achieve each month; one of these was to set a monthly fitness challenge.  I’ve become a little obsessed with monthly challenges recently, why?

  • 30 days is not a great deal of time to invest in a project if it doesn’t work out
  • Doing something for 30 days  can help to cement a good habit
  • A new challenge each month can keep up your motivation and results can be seen in a short space of time
  • It can help you develop a more open mind set to embrace change
  • You can get a lot done it 30 days; think of doing one each month then that’s a lot of goals you’ve achieved!

So apply this to fitness and you’ve got a great fitness plan for the whole year!

Try a new fitness challenge each month, smaller goals are easier to achieve and you will see results quicker! Click To Tweet

Stuck for inspiration?  Then check out my 5 favourite fitness challenges that I have taken from Pinterest.

30 Day Abs and Squats Challenge – this is actually my fitness challenge for February

30 Day Core Strength Challenge

30 Day Sleek Arms Challenge

30 Day Full Killer Body Workout

30 Day Burpee Challenge

Finally you needn’t just have to limit it to a monthly fitness challenge; it can be absolutely anything!

Hello 2017!  Workout Music Playlist

Happy New Year!  It’s 2017 and a fresh start for me fitness wise after the usual over indulgence of Christmas.  Do I feel at all guilty?  Nope!  Well just a little but isn’t that what Christmas is all about.  So now it’s time to get back to the Gym and getting rid of those few extra pounds I’ve managed to pile on. So I’ve put together a new workout music playlist to help me get back into the swing of things.  I’ve also put together a New Year Running Music Playlist, which is slightly more upbeat but just as good for the Gym.

Hello 2017!  Running Music Playlist

 

Happy New Year!  Time to get back to running after two weeks of a diet of chocolate, prosecco and Christmas TV Catch Up marathons.  I went into Christmas full of good intentions but by Christmas morning that had all evaporated and been replaced by a tin of Quality Street.  So a brand, spanking new year and a fresh start.  A cliché I know but I enjoyed Christmas, spending time with family and catching up with friends so I don’t feel guilty.  Now the challenge is to step away from the remains of the selection box and get out there running again.

My Strongwoman Workout #2

My Strongwoman Workout #2

 

This is a workout that I have been doing a while.  Simple but effective.  Back to back exercises with no rest until the round is completed.  By round 4 I’m ready to throw in the towel but completing round 5 gives me such a buzz as I know that I have really pushed myself.  I tend to do this type of workout in order to add some variety to my workout routine and to keep me motivated.

This is the second strongwoman workout after posting ‘My Strongwoman Workout #1’ earlier this year.  I’m not quite squatting more than I weigh but I am getting there! I’ve not included the weights I use as everyone is different.  For Sled drags I use a prowler with additional weights added.  As with any workout be sure to warm-up before a session and find time after for a cool down.

Summer Workout Playlist 2016

New Gym Workout Playlist for the Summer is a must especially now that it’s countdown to my holiday in Cornwall.  I’ve got a new gym programme, attempting to do 3 HIIT sessions a week and if time will throw in the odd 5km run (weather dependent as I’m a complete fair weather runner).  So here’s my workout music for the summer.

Music can motivate you to push harder when training or can take you mind off a hard set of rep's at the #Gym Click To Tweet

Workout Music Playlist for June 2016

It’s the start of summer.  So a new month means a workout music for me to train to.  Loving the light mornings.  This time last year I tended to train early evening because I didn’t think I had time for a trip to the Gym first thing in the morning.  Now is a different story.  I get my gym kit ready the night before, get my post gym smoothie whizzed up and put in the fridge, and set the alarm for 6am.  Some days I will run especially if the sun is shining but I mainly do use this time of the day to get a training session in at the Gym.

Updating my workout playlist can help to boost my motivation when I am training. New month new playlist! Click To Tweet

So here are my 15 Workout Music Songs for June 2016 in a handy Infographic.

Workout Playlist May 2016

Workout Playlist May 2016

Putting together a new workout playlist is always a great way to perhaps give you an extra bit of motivation at the gym.  I try to change my workout music monthly and hit the shuffle button so it’s hard to second guess what’s coming up next.  I generally like my music to be upbeat but I occasionally chuck a slow one in there just because I like that particular track.

I’ve put together an Infographic of my May 2016 workout music playlist, in case you are in need of a little inspiration.

All my workout playlist songs are available on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon.

Workout Playlist April 2016

Workout music can be a great motivator when you are exercising.  It can help take your mind off the a particular exercise, push you on to train harder or even get you to concentrate more.  To be honest I don’t always listen to music when I’m training but when I do I try and to mix up the music I listen to and am constantly putting together new playlists.
