It’s important to always switch up your workout, but it’s just as important to switch up your playlist as well!
Music helps me get in the mood to pull on running shoes when I’m dreading a workout. Here are my go-to songs to get my head bobbing, my fingers snapping, and my feet running (now that I think about it, I probably look really really weird running).
I have a half marathon coming up in ONE MONTH in DC (waaaaaaa????) so I’m beginning to create a perfect running playlist! The last thing I want to do the night before the race is be up all night trying to remember what songs get me pumped…. been there, done that…
By the time I leave work around 6pm, I quickly lose motivation to head to the gym. Instead I have pjs, dinner, and wine on my mind…
After one too many missed evening gym sessions, I decided to switch up my workout routine a bit (more like I HAD to switch up my workout routine)! Now when my alarm goes off at 5:30am, I jump out of bed, wiggle into some Lululemon, and head to the gym.
How do I do it? Some days it’s more of a struggle than other days, but here are a few tricks I’ve learned that help set me up for a successful gym session!
We all know how important staying active is, but sometimes you can’t help it. You either get home from work late and are too exhausted to pull on your gym clothes, or your coworkers want to go out to happy hour after work (and clearly you can’t say “no” to happy hour).
On days like this I feel a bit guilty for not getting any kind of workout in, so I’ve come up with a solution! No matter if I plan to hit the gym for a five mile run after work… or if I plan to hit up happy hour… I always do a daily morning workout to get my blood pumping!
