This week started the actual training part of my 5K training (as opposed to pre-training, which was walking at whatever pace I could sustain). I did pretty good today but I need your help.
Because my training consists of short bouts of running (er, walking fast) and walking at about 1 to 1 1/2 minute intervals, I'm having to look at my cell phone all the time. It is a pain. I can't tell you how many times I've almost dropped my phone in the road. I never get the timing quite right.
So I was thinking I'd make a play list of faster songs (for the faux running times) and slower paced songs (for the walking times) to help guide me through my workout.
Great idea—except everything on my iPod is 2 1/2 to 3 minutes long. Or more. Which will work great in a few weeks when I've worked up to that. But for now, I need some music suggestions.
So please, please, please, I'm begging.
Check your play lists and see if you have some short songs that:
- are 1 to 1.5 minutes in length
- some fast and peppy, some slower
- are suitable for adult listening (for example, nothing on this list)
I like rock, pop, pop country. I don't much care for the really heavy metal or rap.
Post ideas in the comments.
Thanks so much!
