Even though I had a short week, it has seemed to go by so slow. Both my husband and I have been really exhausted all week. We are really looking forward to catching up on some much needed sleep this weekend.

We’ve got a snow storm coming through today, so I ended up on the treadmill on Thursday morning. I could have gone outside, but between being extremely tired of not being able to feel my hands and not wanting to slip on black ice I opted for the dungeon basement treadmill.


I remember why I enjoy running on the treadmill when doing a workout so much more. The simple 5 miles I had scheduled seemed to take forever to go by.

I have a feeling I am going to get to spend a lot more time on the treadmill this weekend. When I know it’s coming, I mentally prepare myself for it so that I’m ready on Saturday.

One of the biggest aids to me when I’m stuck on the treadmill, especially for a long run, is my music. I will try and find 2-3 new songs ahead of time that I can look forward to hearing while I’m running. It’s been a while since I’ve shard some of the music I’m listening too, so I figured it was time!

Here are 6 of my current favorites getting me through my longer weekend runs.

Break Up in a Small Town – Sam Hunt

Hello – Adele (REMIX)

I have to admit, I don’t really like the song too much but when my husband played this remix to it I really enjoy the beat and it is fun to run to!

Gonna Know We Were Here – Jason Aldean

Yours – Russell Dickerson

A slower song but one of my favorites.

Lightening – Olivia Lane

Riser – Dierks Bentley


Adding just 1-2 songs for a treadmill run can help to keep you interested, focused, and gives you something to look forward to.

What are some of your favorite songs? I need some new ones for this weekend!
