Updating Running Tunes for a Mum in her 30’s

I recently wrote  a post about how I had lost touch with modern music – lost decade of music. Following that post, I went away and downloaded some new songs so I thought I’d share my new running playlist. This playlist is a lot more up to date and takes me out of my comfort zone of old school indie tunes. I am going to listen to these this weekend. I don’t know whether these running tunes are the right pace, but I quite like them and they should be a good distraction.

  1. Maroon 5 – Girls Like You
  2. Sia – Chandelier
  3. Lizzo – Juice
  4. George Ezra – Shotgun
  5. Ava Max – Sweet But Psycho
  6. Ariana Grande – 7 Rings
  7. Marshmello featuring Bastille – Happier
  8. Sam Smith, Normani – Dancing With A Stranger
  9. Calvin Harris Rag’n’Bone Man – Giant
  10. Pink – A Million Dreams
  11. Felix Jaehn – Aint Nobody (featuring Jasmine Thompson)

I don’t love running. I don’t even like running. I don’t understand how people love running. However I do like to keep fit and I like the feeling after I have done a run. My half hour commitment once a week feels like a worthy sacrifice. I like the chance to be child-free and listen to my own choice of music for half an hour. My weekly half hour of running, or jogging, is a chance for me to switch off. Even if that does come at the cost of pounding up and down hills in the cold, wet weather.

My previous playlist was mainly from the 1990’s or earlier and I have now updated my tunes for songs that have been released in the last year or so. This weekend I will miss Madness, Blur, Scissor Sisters and Motown tunes while I listen to these modern running tunes.

We have had some pretty horrible weather lately and I really need a distraction when there is rain and wind in my face. I hope these new running tunes will provide that distraction.
