5 Mile Pick-Up Run & My Fav Workout Playlist

125 comments

20101006IMG_4396

Aside from the relentless cloud cover and rain we’ve been hit with lately, the temperatures have been fairly warm for November! I’ve been getting outside for runs this week, trying to soak up every last degree of warmth.

Yesterday, I had a great run that I like to call the “5-mile pick-up run”. With each mile, I pick up the pace and haul major booty! It’s great for warming up when it’s a bit chilly outside too. I start off slower than I usually would and then gradually increase the pace.

5 Mile Pick-Up Run

Note: Can be done outside with a running watch or on the treadmill at any pace, distance, or incline.

Mile 1: 9:30 min/mile

Mile 2: 9:00 min/mile

Mile 3: 8:30 min/mile

Mile 4: 8:00 min/mile

Mile 5: 7:30 min/mile (sprint last 100-200 metres)

I love, love, love this run. You can use this pick-up method with any distance and pace to suit your own ability level. It’s a bit more challenging to control my pace while running outside (vs. a treadmill), but as long as I stay fairly close to my target it’s no biggie. On a treadmill, you can control your pace much more accurately and you can also change up the hills if you’re feeling…so inclined.

Here’s my current workout playlist that I’ve been rocking to lately.

Sweat It Out Playlist:

1. “Good Feelin’” Flo Rida

2. “Mr. Saxobeat” Alexandra Sran

3. “Dog Days are Over” Florence & The Machine

4. “We Found Love” Rihanna

5. “Firework” Katy Perry

6. “On The Floor” JLo feat Pitbull

7. “Memories” David Guetta

8. “You & I” Lady Gaga

9. “Love You Like A Love Song” Selena Gomez

10. “Headlines” Drake

11. “The Cave” Mumford & Sons

12. “Last Friday Night” Katy Perry

13. “Where Them Girls At” David Guetta

14. “Fly” Nicki Minaj feat. Rihanna

15. “Cheers (Drink to that)” Rihanna

16. “5′ O’clock” T Pain

IMG_4344

I’m pretty sure I’ll be sick of this list by the end of the week, but knowing me I’ll probably listen to it until March slowly driving myself insane a bit more each day. That’s how playlists work, right?

All of those are pretty much at the top of my playlist right now! I also love biscotti, so I’ll check back for that recipe. :)

Where did you get that mug? It’s so pretty!

2 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 10, 2011

Thanks! The mug was a gift from my friend Sarah. I think it’s from Anthro! It has an “A” on the otherside.

I love that playlist. Downloading a bunch of fast paced songs is actually on my to do list this week for my half next week!

I love the idea of that run– mine are usually totally the opposite, starting out fast and then ending with my slowest mile, ha. Great playlist too :-)

Sometimes a run is just what the doctor ordered! Love the playlist, so upbeat and fun!

7 Lia November 10, 2011

Seems like we have similar workout music taste. That is absolutely a playlist that would get me going. I’ve actually never made a workout playlist and my music is oh so outdated thanks to Pandora. I’m excited about the Biscotti! Love it, can never find a good vegan one, will have to make what you post :D

Reply

8 Coco November 10, 2011

Hahah, playlists can really haunt you for a while after you make them, indeed! Your run sounds challenging and awesome. I :just: started up a Couch-to-5k app, just got done with the first week. I’m looking forward to being able to do runs like this sometime in the not-so-near future. Your fitness is absolutely inspiring, Angela!

Curse my full time job! I won’t run in the dark and now it’s dark when I leave the house and dark when I get home! Enjoy that weather while you can!! :)

When training for longer distances (5+ miles), I just play the whole Gaga “Fame” and “Fame Monster” albums! Alternates: Fatboy Slim’s greatest hits album, any Beastie Boys album, or any Jamiorquai album.

I have eclectic tastes! ;)

12 Jessica @ Chockohlawtay November 10, 2011

I always have to listen to really intense music to get myself to keep running (like Turbulence by Steve Aoki & Laidback Luke feat Lil Jon) lol. That’s so embarrassing to say.

PS: please post that biscotti recipe soon!! (tomorrow? :D hehe)

Hi Angela!

We have the same Garmin – wish I knew how to utilize its programs more effectively. Do you program your pace for each mile or run and glance often to make sure you’re in the right zone? BTW, great playlist!

Beautiful mug!! It looks like Anthropologie? Can’t wait for the biscotti recipe!!!!
I don’t have a running watch or access to a treadmill, but I definitely enjoy runs when I start slow and build up speed. Nothing like expending all your steam on the first two miles…I like to pretend that the last few miles are a race to the finish line and I want to end strong and fast :)

Yup it’s from Anthro :)

Great playlist! I’ve been rockin out to “5′ O’clock” by T Pain too recently… I’m also loving “Sexy and I Know it” by LMFAO and “Princess of China” by Coldplay.

I love that playlist – Mr. Saxobeat is a definite regular on my playlist for running right now! If you like that and you haven’t heard it yet, check out Robert Rudolph and the Family Band – Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That. It will get you running as well!

I always get super excited for a new playlist and super bored of them really fast! But it takes so much time to put a new one together I usually suffer through it as well. lol!

Good for you. Five miles is too much for me. I know what you mean about the playlist. It can take some time to put it together, and then you get tired of it fairly soon. I have to think about starting to put together a new one. I like rock/alternative songs, so it can be challenging. I put a couple of playlists of this kind on my blog, if anyone likes to rock out like me :)

This actually makes running sound like fun! I’ve been a dancer all my life, and my teachers have always told me to avoid running because of the impact. But over the last two years, most everyone I know has become run-crazy, participating in half or whole marathons and organizing running groups, etc. I held out for a good while, but I think I’m finally started to catch the bug. And if running gives me an excuse to listen to an awesome playlist like yours, why not give in?

I’m also loving track 6 (“On The Floor” JLo feat Pitbull) as well :-)

I’m going to be stealing some ideas from your playlist! I rarely change up my iPod contents and I’m SO tired of most of the songs on it.

Wow, we have very similar stories + the same mug down to the personalized A :) I also struggled with EDs, recovered + developed a healthy relationship with food + a positive running habit :) Cheers, lady! – Adriana

The other day I put on both Justin Timberlake albums and got so into it I made a new personal record. Another oldie but goodie for running is Britney Spears’ Blackout album, especially “Freakshow”. Also a fan of Missy Elliott and old school Nelly Furtado (think Maneater and Promiscuous Girl). Pop music while running is truly the best.

I just came across your blog, and I absolutely love it. I will also be marketing it to my vegan friends. I wonder, do you have a favorite analytics watch like fitbit or garmin that you love more than others? I realize you are not marketing or an agent for them, but your idea on mapping out a set schedule for the next morning is best for me. Also, have a watch for analytics/big data will help boost my daily steps/run. I hope to get your response.
