Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

Workout Mix Wednesday

Posted by Lissa on May 5, 2010

Good morning everyone!  Today I’ve got two Official LookingForLissa product endorsements for you!

1) The Vibram Five Fingers.  I’ve only done two runs with them so far, but they don’t hurt my feet (my biggest worry) and I’ve noticed a lot less tension/pain in my shins and my arches.  They also make me notice the clunkiness of my gait — I feel like I’m going WHAM WHAM WHAM instead of smoothly transitioning from one foot to another.  Something to work on!

2) The C25K (Couch to 5K) program.  Again, I’ve only done two runs so far, but I really like the clear aural cues for running/walking, the simplicity of the program’s layout, and the fact that I can import my own music.

And speaking of music, here are the five songs rockin’ my iPod this week:

  1. Bodies by Drowning Pool – Rawrrr!  ANGRY music! RAWR!!!
  2. Dragula by Rob Zombie – This one makes me think of The Matrix and how I want a body like Trinity’s.  (And remember — there was only one Matrix movie.  The others didn’t exist.)
  3. Feel Good by Gorillaz – Great beat, and if you’ve ever seen the video you can think on the weird-and-funky gorilla cartoons.
  4. Te Aviso, Te Anuncio (Tango) by Shakira – Don’t ask me why the Spanish version is better than the English version; I don’t know why, it just is.
  5. Hey Jealousy by Gin Blossoms – If you’re around my age, you know every word of this song without bothering to think about it, and you can sing along even when you’re completely out of breath.

Happy Exercising!
