Working out and the playlist

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my health, most notably my weight and exercise.  I really want to lose some weight and be able to run for extended periods without feeling like I’m going to die.  This past week, I have started the Couch to 10 K program – it’s an app (isn’t everything an app?) that uses interval training to get you from never having run to, theoretically, running a 5K, a 10K(in my case) or a half marathon (maybe a goal, we’ll see how this goes). I really like this app because it allows you to access your own playlists and it will prompt you to run and walk at intervals. I have also been sing My Fitness Pal, which is an app that helps you to keep track of the amount of calories that you’re eating and burning throughout the day.  What would be really cool would be to get one of those fit band that syncs to the app.  I’m very hopeful about this…but one never knows.

Today, I went running at around 3:30 in the afternoon and it was getting dark towards the end of my run.  I also spent some of the time running through snow flurries and wind.  We’re expecting our first major storm this week coming up – tentatively of course because things could change. I hope that I can continue with training to some extent indoors because it might get really boring during the winter. That’s part of the reason that music is so important, to me at least, in this case.  My question to you is what tunes are on your workout or running playlists?  Here is what is currently on my list:
