This morning I started my day off with some cross training in the form of level 3 of Jillian’s 30 day shred. I tend to do this workout about once a week, but it had been awhile since I worked out before work. It was a good way to start my day.
Speaking of work, I spent part of the day today at an ostrich farm.
According to National Geographic they are the largest bird in the world, live 30 to 40 years in the wild, and can sprint up to 43 mph. They can also run 31 miles in an hour! And here I thought it was so cool that one ran along side me easily while I was going 20 mph on a bumpy gravel road.
Last night I started putting together a playlist for the Varmint 1/2 Marathon
this weekend. This race is run in a rural area with little to no spectators, so I plan to listen to my iPod most of the race. Here are a few songs I’m loving right now:
1. Blurred Lines (feat. T.I. & Pharrell) – Robin Thicke
2. Come & Get It – Selena Gomez
3. Mirrors – Justin Timberlake
4. Can’t Hold Us (feat. Ray Dalton) – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
5. I Love It (feat. Carli XCX) – Icona Pop
6. My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark – Fall Out Boy
I don’t necessarily need all fast and upbeat songs. As long as it’s music I enjoy that works for me.
Do the majority of your workouts happen in the AM or PM?
Have you ever seen an ostrich in real life before?
Do you listen to music when you workout or run a race? What type of music do you prefer?
