I'm on week five of C25K. It sucks.

I've done C25K before and weeks five and six always kick my butt. My legs are sore after every run and it's not enjoyable.

I know it's good for me. I know it'll get easier. But here's the thing - I hate running. There, I admit it. I've never liked it. I do it as a means to an end. The end being my rear end in jeans.

Anywho... For the really tough days, when I reeeally don't want to run, I put on the following playlist and get my butt out the door:

  • No More Drama - Mary J. Blige
  • Fighter - Christina Aguillera
  • Lose Yourself - Eminem
  • Pretender - Foo Fighters
  • Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
  • Die Another Day - Madonna
  • Elevation - U2
  • Dance, Dance - Fall Out Boy
  • Feel Good - Gorillaz
  • Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani
  • Numb/Encore - Jay Z/Linkin Park
  • This Modern Love - Bloc Party
  • Ger UR Freak On - Missy Elliott
  • Bullet and a Target - Citizen Cope
  • Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel
What do you listen to when you run?

I can't remember if I already commented about this but I did the C25K too. I finished last summer but injured my knee in Jan. Well yesterday I had this overwhelming urge to run and I did (I guess my knee it fixed?)! Some of my running songs:
Nelly Furtado- Promiscuous Girl and Say it Right
Timbaland- The way I Are
Dirty Vegas- Days go by
Lil Jon- Get Low
The Bravery- Honest Mistake
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Higher Ground
Britney Spears- Stronger

I like to listent to songs that I would not normally listen to casually like Black Eye Peas and Justin Timberlake. Thanks for your play list - i've been looking for new inspiration!
