Tunes to keep the pace up

Yesterday, after a much-too-long break, I pulled on my running shoes and got my butt off the couch and found a decent route to get going with my #2MilesADay plan again. While I'm currently stuck with a crappy old phone that can't get new apps, thereby not having any official distance tracker or a voice in my ear when I hit a mile mark, I do still have motivation and the ability to draw my route on a distance tracker online! So I have some options that I know the approximate distance of until I get a new phone and can get back to better habits.

With the idea of getting back into better habits, I decided my old walking tunes playlist needed a revamp. I put one together that varies in pace a bit: starting a bit faster, slowing, speeding up again, and ending with Mika. Because Mika.

My powerwalking in NJ averaged 13-16 minutes/mile depending on the weather and the terrain, and these tunes are of a good BPM for me to do that comfortably. If you're into walking for fitness, would like to be into it, or if you already jog or whatnot, I hope you might like this playlist! Or even just for jamming out to. Old favorites, new likes, a bit of silliness, and a lot of catchy pop tunes overall. While the length of this playlist is longer than I need right now, I like having the option of skipping forward if the mood strikes/the pace of the day calls for it.

Now it's time for me to put the shoes back on and get out there this afternoon!
