Stuck in a Funk? Time to Getting Moving

If you're like me, routine is your specialty. Weekdays I dedicate my workout indoors, at the gym. Then, weekends (preferably Sunday), I usually commit to running outside. However, today is such a nice day, I feel like going outside of my routine and running outside. Since last weekend was Lollapalooza, I was not able to do my Sunday morning run. I feel like I'm going through runner's withdrawal. I know I sound kind of nuts, but for anyone who loves running, the feeling afterward is what we all crave. Even though I do love my gym workouts (or more so the feeling after I have completed my gym workouts), I need a change. I need something more than being on a elliptical for an hour than doing the stair stepper while I watch daytime TV. I want a challenge!

If your stuck in a funk, one thing that always helps me is new music. I am a huge music lover so adding to my play list helps me get up and start moving.The problem that I found with a lot of workout or running play lists that are found online, is that they repeat a lot of the same songs. I love the radio but it overkills a lot of good songs. So, when it comes to working out, I love to listen to songs I have not heard before. Songs that won't make me want to press the next button. Below I listened some of the sounds found on my running play list. It is a lot of electric dance music (EDM), but the beats keep my feet moving. So, get up and dance!
