Panache Sports 2014 campaign aims to engage women who are looking to improve their fitness and wellbeing. They emailed me to ask if I’d share my most inspirational workout music to help build the ultimate Panache Sport workout playlist on Spotify. As fitness isn’t exactly my specialist subject, I called in an expert!
After the festive break, the New Year is always a good time to revive your training plan for a springtime race. However, even to a keen runner, the dark and cold January mornings can still leave you reaching for the snooze button. It’s at these times that a great playlist is essential to get you out of bed and putting your trainers on.
Music is a great motivator and it’s important to have songs that fit with your type of training; think of faster songs for intervals and slower songs for cool down. I highly recommend you spending a bit of time creating playlist instead of hitting ‘random’, as a ill timed ballad at the mid way point could have a negative impact on your run.
Jump In The Pool – Friendly Fires
Electric Feel – MGMT
(reminds me of summer and great way to start any run)
Say Aha – Santigold
Zero – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
(picking up the pace from first to second mile)
Where’s Your Head At – Basement Jaxx
Hey Boy Hey Girl – The Chemical Brothers
Main Offender – The Hives
(main section to keep the pace up and keep going till the end!)
Left Too Late – Florrie
(starting to wind down last mile)
Sing To The Moon – Laura Mvula
Au Cinéma – Lianne Le Havas
(cool down and stretch!)
