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

Workout Mix Wednesday *UPDATED*

Posted by Lissa on May 12, 2010

Good morning all! My computer is apparently as sleepy as I was, seeing as how it’s frozen Firefox twice so far. I’ll update this post later with this week’s songs, but I gotta run off to the gym now!

UPDATE: Poof!  Mike wasn’t kidding, the second week is noticeably harder than the first week.  Week 1 was almost like a gimme — perhaps because I haven’t *actually* just been sitting on my couch — while Week 2 made me puff.  Add that to the fact that I haven’t worked out since Friday and I fought a stitch in my side with every running segment.  On the upside, I increased the running segment speed to 8:34 miles, with the last segment going at a 8:00 mile pace.  Week by week, that’s how we’ll get it done!  

Five more songs for you to run away with:

  1. Istanbul (Not Constantinople) by They Might Be Giants – such a silly little song!  Ahh, the 80s . . . (Didn’t these guys also do Triangle Man?  I distinctly remember that cartoon.)
    [apologies for any repeats — I don’t have access to my song log right now]
  2. Say It Right by Nelly Furtado
  3. Lady Marmalade from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack (a movie I have never seen; anyone particularly love it or hate it?)
  4. Magic Carpet Ride by Steppenwolf
  5. Still Frame by Trapt

Happy Exercising!

    Magic Carpet Ride is my dancing song.

    They Might Be Giants (who are also in my workout rotation, BTW) did indeed perform “Triangle Man”. They also recorded “Don’t/Let’s Start” which was I believe their biggest “hit”.

    And they also did “You’re Not the Boss of Me”, which was used as the theme song to “Malcolm in the Middle”…

    Very nice!
    I hear you on the getting back into it side of things. When I finally got back on the trapeze for realsies (like an intense hour of aerial work) 3 weeks ago, I was sore to the bone for a solid week after just that single hour.
