Run Tunes

Great run tonight! I'm really trying to monitor my heart rate with my Garmin and it's helping me maintain a more reasonable pace. I managed to run the entire five miles, which is totally awesomesauce for me. ESPECIALLY given that I haven't done anything over 3.3 miles since my injury in October.

I. Was. RunNANG, JenNAY.

Tonight I had the chance to listen to some music I've downloaded recently and I found that three of my new songs were unexpectedly good running songs.

I now present to you: Running Songs that Don't Seem Like they Would Be Running Songs

Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap

You know, from that Diet Coke song that plays at the movies.

Mellow, but with a nice beat in the background that makes you feel like YOU are in the Diet Coke Commercial. Good times.

The Big Bang by Rock Mafia

I don't think you know this one from anything, but it's good.

Good for when you've got that Kill Bill whistling song stuck in your head and you need a new one to replace it.

Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine

You know, that song on the Eat, Pray, Love Trailer.

Good for when you want to pretend you're Julia Roberts-ing on your adorable bike through Bali (on your way home to Javier Bardem). Yeah, I said it.
