45RPMs, cont.

Today I ran a simple 5K. Not an organized race, just a 5K route I have mapped out around my ‘hood. I know yesterday I said I would not normally run with a musical playlist, but today I did, and I picked up where I left off yesterday.

My playlist consists of songs I thought would motivate me to run faster and/or I just like them, and it is called RunningRock. I carry the iPod Nano in a pocket in my shorts. I swear the Nano was made for running. It’s small enough that I don’t even notice I have it.

I did the run today in 23:21, average pace 7:31. Without further ado, here is what I heard while running.

How Do U Want It-2Pac  
The Humpty Dance-Digital Underground     Humpty, aka Shock G, proves that you can make a song incredibly filthy without using even one four letter swear word.
I’ll Sue Ya-Weird Al Yankovic
I’m Your Boogie Man-KC and the Sunshine Band
It’s All About the Pentiums-Weird Al Yankovic     This version rocks so much harder than P Diddy’s It’s All About the Benjamins.
King of the Ladies-Extreme

Do you have any go to songs that make you run faster?

About The Pretend Triathlete

Just a 46 year old trying to stay in shape. Not pro-athlete in shape, just 46 year old guy with a family and a house and a job in shape. Signing up for races is the best way I've found to do that. I blog about things that happen to me and things I observe while training and racing. Let's do this!
