Summer Workout Playlist

July 29, 2015

I’m struggling to get back into running (again!) I swear it’s a constant cycle between love and hate at the moment. To help get back into it I’ve put together a Summer Workout Playlist full of some completely different song choices compared to my usual metal! Here are just a few of the songs that feature on my playlist…

Ok so I am not a Taylor fan. I do not own any albums, just this one song, as I don’t really like the rest of her stuff… But Shake It Off is so annoyingly catchy and bouncy it had to feature on my Summer Workout playlist. I blame the constant stream of Radio 1 in the lab at work for me liking this song.

We need to blame Charlie, Mark and Emma for influencing my obsession with RuPaul’s Drag Race. This RuPaul song is a firm favourite and could not be missed off my Summer Workout playlist, it’s just so catchy! Other RuPaul songs also feature on the complete playlist!

This song is awful, but also awesome. Can you see a theme here? I’ve gone for cheese in my Summer Workout Playlist, but I think cheese works. The high tempo and catchy lyrics have people staring at me as a sing along (badly) as I run and given the crappy weather we’ve had recently, they bring a bit of sunshine to my workout!

I’m just hoping as I kick into training for yet another set of 10k races that these songs give me the inspiration I need. What’s on your Summer Workout Playlist? What’s getting you running this summer? Why not out together a playlist and let Pure Gym know to win a bunch of awesome prizes.

    I’m exercising to the new Little Mix song which seems to be motivating me somehow. I’m not a massive Taylor fan but there’s just something a little addictive about Shake It Off,

      I’ve not heard their new song, will have to find! Totally agree about Taylor 😉

    When I Grow Up used to be my jam! I still run to it sometimes! Good choice, Emma! 😉

    That Taylor song though… annoys me to no end. I loved Country Taylor but the current Taylor, I could live without to be quite honest! 🙁

      Like I said I’m not really a Taylor fan, this song is just one of those ones that ends up in my brain and listening to it dilutes it, all her others are pretty rubbish. I hate country too so there’s no way I’d like her early stuff 😉

      I’m blaming my workload, working stupid hours at the moment so I’m constantly knackered!
