Playlist: Back to Training

11:07 AM



I initially planned to just run for 2 miles but I ended up finishing 6K of interval workout and some rowing and ab exercises on the side. Guess you can tell I am really serious now. No more going to the gym for show or just because I am meeting a friend to chitchat with.

I am training again to avoid any untoward injuries and I might not last and finish the run if I slack off. I will try so hard not to miss any scheduled run and try to up the ante everyday and challenge myself and surprise every muscle I use when running. I am hell-bent on putting this motivation to good use.

Here's my current playlist:

1. Can't Fight It (Ne-yo) 3:36 - this should be good for some stretching and waking up my sleepy nerves (oh yes, I come from a graveyard shift and then head straight to the gym)

2. I Know You Want Me (Pitbull) 4:00 - this I listened to while alternating between brisk walking and running, 3 incline 5 speed for 2 minutes, 2 incline and 10 speed for 1 minute and 4 incline and 5 speed for another minute

3. Right Round (Flo Rida feat Keisha) 3:26 - this is a happy song. I loved it while running. 5 incline 5 speed for the entire duration of the song

4. Boom Boom Pow (Black Eyed Peas) 4:13 - some more interval madness. 3 incline 5 speed for 2 minutes, 2 incline and 10 speed for 1 minute and 4 incline and 5 speed until the song fades

5. I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas) 4:07 - by this time your endorphins don't want you to stop anymore and you feel so pumped up you just wanna go on and on. 3 incline 5 speed for 2 minutes, 2 incline and 10 speed for 1 minute and 4 incline and 5 speed until the song fades

6. Go Girl (Pitbull and Trina) 3:52 - easy brisk walking for the entire duration of the song

7. Bojangles Remix (Pitbull with Lil Jon) 4:35 - 3 incline 5 speed for 2 minutes, 2 incline and 10 speed for 1 minute and 4 incline and 5 speed until the song fades

8. Spotlight (Ne-yo) 4:05 - time to go easy and just brisk walk 5 incline 5 speed for the entire duration of the song

9. Whoop D Whoop (Pitbull) 2:32 - one last hurrah 2 incline 7 speed for the whole duration of the song

10. Stay With Me (Ne-yo) 3:53 - walk slow as you cool down and do some more stretching

I will update my playlist on week 2 of training. I will for sure increase the intensity and choose faster songs.

An interval workout, which alternates between moderate and fast speeds, not only blasts fat, it also keeps the burn going. You'll knock off 9 percent more calories for up to 14 hours after 30 minutes of high-intensity exercise (Florida State University study).
