Running Playlist May 2019

I can hardly believe it is May! Spring is so slow to come here in New Hampshire. We have been having a ton of rain which is good for the flowers and greening everything up but on many days it is a cold rain. We are still having temperatures in the 30’s in the mornings. I am ready to ditch my long running tights and layers in favor of running skirts and tank tops. I am ready to run with the sun warming my face. I did get out for a great long run yesterday in the sun although it was in the 40’s. I did get a little bit of pink color in my cheeks which was nice.

I am currently training hard for the upcoming Wallis Sands Half Marathon on May 19th in Rye, New Hampshire. I have been able to consistently do most workouts and have been loving the long runs. It always feels good to get some solid miles under your belt. During the week my coach often has me do Threshold Runs where the pace is around a 10K pace for a portion of the run. I know that these runs are necessary but for some reason they intimidate me. Do you have any running workouts that intimidate you? Picking up the pace is challenging but I know it is making me a faster runner and I will be happy for those workouts when race day arrives. I have been doing most of my training near my house which is mostly very hilly. This makes the runs where I have to pick up the pace a lot harder but I know on race day I will reap the rewards especially on a mostly flat race course.

Since it is May it is time for some new tunes to get you going on your run. This months playlist has a bit of a country feel to it. For some reason I have been on a real country kick lately so bear with me if this is not for you. I never thought I’d be a country music girl but it seems to be what fits my mood.

What songs have been getting you going lately for your running and workouts?

  1. Country music is just good for the soul, I think!
    You are just rockin’ your training Sandra! Good job!
    I don’t have any races on the calendar, so my runs lately have been listening to some great podcasts, or not listening to anything… kind of a nice change of pace right now.
    I would like to start working on getting faster again. But I seem to struggle with how to do that. I don’t work with a coach, so I sort of follow different training plans/guides. Tempo runs, threshold runs scare me because I’m not sure if I’m ever doing them correctly. I run a lot of hills too, which always helps on race day!
    The weather this winter/spring (even here in SoCal) has been odd. Yesterday and today have been rainy and cool, but really, I can’t complain. I am craving those early mornings with the warm sun rising though.
    My running play list right now, has a lot of Sia, Carrie Underwood, Pink, and Imagine Dragons 🙂
    Have a great rest of your Tuesday!
