Music Monday: #MotivationMonday Remix Edition

Happy Monday!  It’s official, I have two work weeks left before I do my first sprint triathlon.  I am nervous, excited, and having all the feels that one can have for not being very athletic to begin with and attempting a very athletic feet.

Along with running, I have been swimming and biking as well to prepare, because #Tri.  So, today’s #MotivationMonday playlist was inspired by a recent spin class I took at Lincoln Square Athletic Club, because I was feelin’ the vibes of stellar remixes that the instructor was playing.  So I thought, why not share some of my favorite workout remixes that are great for anyone’s ride whether you’re in a class or not.

Get out on that trail or keep turnin’ up on your own stationary bike to this pumpin’ list.  What do you jam out to on your rides?  Comment below!

Music Monday: Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!  I know everyone is probably out there firing up the barbecue, mixing that potato salad and making a mad dash to the store for more booze, so here’s a quick #MotivationMonday update!

Today’s #MondayMotivation playlist has a patriotic theme, so I encourage you to jump on your bike, get out there for a run or go do something active even if it’s just for a little bit to celebrate FREEDOM.

Last year I ran my first 5k run.  This year I ran two in the span of a few weeks and even shaved off 2 minutes on my time!

I’m 6 weeks away from doing my first sprint triathlon and every day counts.  I’ll be bustin’ a move to these jams today and I hope you get out there and do something to burn off all those weekend calories too!
