The 5 – 10 K Running Order

The 5 – 10 K Running Order

July 13, 2018 Off By Keep It Green

10 Songs for that 5 – 10 K Run you’ve said you’re going to do.

A bit of motivation is all I needed

I’ve set myself a goal to increase my 5 K run to 10 K. A target inadvertently set by an old school friend, ‘if I can do it you can’ she claims.

Okay then, but with every new challenge come a motivational sound track, I’ve seen Rocky, I know how this story goes.

Running by the coast

Here then is 1 hour and 3 minutes of motivation. Because that’s also my time target for the 10 Kilometres run. Eventually.

10 Motivational songs to run with

1/ Rez by Underworld (The warm up)

2/ Hysteria by Muse (Getting that blood pumping a bit faster now)

3/ Where it’s at by Beck (Settling into a pace here)

4/ Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen (Because I might be thinking of walking for a bit and need an anthem)

5/ The Passenger by Iggy Pop (Because the man is a Legend)

6/ New Years Day by U2 (Digging deep

7/ Lazaretto by Jack White (Back into that pace, no flaggin)
