Jack's First Run

No Lionel, No Problem! (PLAYLIST)

Happy Monday. Remember when I said that I was going to be posting a weekly workout playlist. Well, I have plenty of exercise related excuses and life updates that are giving me a “get out a jail free’ card:

  1. Jack’s First Organized Run. Last weekend, I ran in my cousin’s elementary school’s mile long fun run. This was a pretty big deal for me, and I didn’t bump into anyone too hard. I even accomplished my goal of finishing in under 10 minutes (9:20). Pretty exciting stuff. New goal alert: I want to run an organized 5k by the end of the summer.
  2. Just call me Jackey “No Shoes.” Immediately after the fun run, I forgot my shoes at my godparents’ house. And, I didn’t get back there for 5 days. Needless to say, I wasn’t running very far (read: at all) without my exercise shoes on.
  3. Playlist Brain Fart. I got serious writer’s block with this particular playlist. I was working really really hard to get a Lionel Riche song onto this list (mostly because I love Lionel Riche), but I couldn’t do it and I got all discouraged. I don’t think that is really a problem that most people have, but I sure did this past week.
  4. Rain, Rain, Go Away. Nuff said… am I right? (@Everyone In MPLS)

But, Jack’s workout playlist is back!! And, as I’ve had so much time to put it together, you can bet your butt that it is going to be a good one: “No Lionel Riche, No Problem”

A lot of hot new releases that have been on repeat for me on this playlist. I can’t stop listening to Blackbear’s latest single, “do re mi.” All of Tuxedo’s new project is dance-inspiring (as usual), so I threw “Fux with the Tux” on there. And a little new Selena Gomez for good measure.

After the warm up of newer tracks, the sweat starts a pouring when Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” comes on and D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha.”Also, when was the last time you heard “Suit & Tie”… 🙂

Get sweaty out there, Folks!
