Not a Case of the Monday’s

I just know today is going to be a great day. Why?

#1 Reason: Never Shout Never

Just saw on Spotify that Never Shout Never has a new cd out. BEST NEWS EVER!

#2 Reason: Maxing Out

I maxed out my bench press today with 95 pounds. That’s 82% of my body weight. At the end of season we hope to get 100%.

#3 Reason: Hashtags

I got Tweetdeck for Chrome and am now obsessed with hashtags. Sorry twitter friends, beware of swamped amounts of running talk because I have added columns of these groups

#4 Reason: Teal Converse

I’m wearing my brand new Teal Converse I got for $8 at Kohls the other day Smile

Too bad my phone quality is awful and you can’t see how bright they really are. I also promise I am wearing shorts Smile 

 

Now a present for you all. Ever looking for music to workout to? Look no farther.

the answer: Run Hundred

Chris from Run Hundred emailed me and provided me a list of the top 10 workout songs for the month. He compiles a top 10 for each month taken from votes on RunHundred.com

My favorite part of the lists are the BPM (beats per minute) of each song. I certainly know fast songs get me pumped up to run and I notice faster times.

Also, their website provides a sound clip of each of the songs.

The top 10 for this month are:

  • Pitbull, Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer – Give Me Everything (Sidney Samson Remix) – 129 BPM
  • Nicki Minaj – Super Bass – 128 BPM
  • Switchfoot – Dark Horses – 83 BPM
  • Gym Class Heroes & Adam Levine – Stereo Hearts – 90 BPM
  • Lady GaGa – Edge Of Glory (Bare Noize Remix) – 140 BPM
  • Pitbull & Marc Anthony – Rain Over Me – 128 BPM
  • Nadia Ali, Alex Kenji & Starkillers – Pressure (Alesso Radio Edit) – 129 BPM
  • T.I. & B.o.B. – We Don’t Get Down Like Y’all – 92 BPM
  • LMFAO, GoonRock & Lauren Bennett – Party Rock Anthem (Russ Chimes Remix) – 129 BPM
  • Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat – 129 BPM

 

Chris stated this about RunHundred “Visitors can browse the song selections there by genre, tempo, and era-to find the music that best fits with their particular workout routine.”

    1.) I follow some of the running ones and I follow my company.

    2.) I actually have SuperBass on my ipod for running.

    3.) I don’t think so… I defiitely can’t lift 95 pounds, wow. Usually I do machine weights and even on that, I’m nowhere close!

    4.) Oh yeah, been using it since the beginning when you had to be invited, haha. Being in the techie world, I’m the first to hear about anything. It’s so great, can listen to songs before downloading :).

    I love the dog image! I’m so sending that to my friend who did a CrossFit comp this weekend.
