Perfecting my Playlist

I took today off from the gym to get some much needed rest and to spend some much, much needed time on my PhD. I definitely feel better after taking a bit of a break, and I'm ready for tomorrow's big workout.

During my study break I took some time to work on my playlist. I seem to be stuck in a rut with my gym music lately ... I know I shouldn't be completely dependent on music to motivate me through my workouts, but it is a very, very important part. In fact, the days that my battery has run out on my iPod or some other mishap occurs, I feel totally off sync. Anyway.

Here's the new playlist that I've put together for my cardio session tomorrow --

1) When Love Takes Over (feat. Kelly Rowland) - David Guetta
2) We Belong - Strange Attractors & MC Scooter
3) True Believer - E-Type
4) Voodoo People (Pendullum Remix) - The Prodigy
5) It's Not Over (Club Mix) - Paffendorf
6) Blade (Jon Doe & Kutski Remix) - Warm Brothers feat. Red Monkey
7) Let the Music Take Control - Darude/Ville Virtanen
8) Painkiller - Freestylers feat. Pendulum
9) My Life Would Suck Without You (Bass Force Remix) - Kelly Clarkson
10) Thunderstruck - Blizzard Brothers
11) Jump that Rock (Whatever you want) - Scooter vs. Status Quo
12) Never Cry Again - Dash Berlin

[1 hour cardio playlist]

I'd welcome any other favorite gym workout songs. I need to mix things up a little!


  1. oooohh! You're getting a PhD! I'm so impressed. Good for you. Since I just found your blog last week I'm still getting up to speed. What's your PhD for?

  2. Thanks Kim! I'm also going to be catching up on some of your older blog posts! I'm researching the effects of globalization on English language learning - specifically focusing on Kuwait University students (which is where I work) ... it's been very interesting, but as I'm trying to finish up in the next few months it's getting more and more stressful! Fingers crossed!

  3. Oh my that sounds interesting!! My dream would be to go back to school for Sociology or Anthropology so that kind of stuff is right up my alley! (my degree is Accounting....boring! LOL). Best of luck to you. That really does sound interesting. You're a lucky girl.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I can use all the support I can get :)
