Christmas Running Playlist

Christmas Running Playlist

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you know that I decided about a month ago to set a goal of being a “runner.” I was running regularly until about 10 years ago when I got a stress fracture. Afterwards, I never got back into it. I do cardio exercise regularly, but it hasn’t been in the form of running.

I found a walking-to-running plan on Pinterest, and I thought I would give it a try. My husband and I weight train 5-6 days a week, so I would be lying if I gave the impression that I was starting from zero activity level. Even so, I have found it to be very difficult. About a month into the plan, I hit a mental wall. The plan was requiring a set number of minutes running, then a set number walking, then a different set number of minutes running, etc. I was finding that counting the minutes until I was “supposed” to start walking again (before running again, LOL) was actually making it more difficult for me.

So I’ve set the Pinterest plan to the side, and I am just working on increasing the number of minutes per day that I am able to run. I am allowing a rest day in between each run until I have more endurance. In the meantime, I’ve signed up to run a 5k on Christmas Eve. I put together a Christmas Eve running playlist to listen to while I train.

I use Apple Music, and I will link it HERE if you want to use it as well. (Apple Music comes free with my cell phone service, sorry Spotify users.)
