I’ll be honest I had another post entirely planned for today. However, life gets in the way sometimes. If you couldn’t tell from my general lack of presence this week online, it has been a few busy days in my life that includes getting ready for the first out of town hockey tournament of the year this weekend. That being said, my originally planned post will be rolled out Monday (hint: band-aids not groupies) and I’ll finally respond to everybody’s lovely comments. In the mean time I decided to treat everyone to a playlist. I’m the queen of various playlists, I have over 100 between iTunes and Spotify. I’ve shared some on the blog here before and they’ve been popular, so I’ve had a few planned lined up for the blog.
This is my Indie Workout Playlist. I’ve had many people ask me what my favorite workout songs are and I can never answer because I have 12 work out playlists of various genres and types. Yes, I counted. (What? I love playlists.) This is only a handful of my indie focused songs, coming in at 16 songs and barely under an hour. Warm up, in the groove, and cool down are all included. Perfect for a good workout. Which I figured was a good thing since it’s January and everybody including your grandmother has the resolution to get in shape, so ace music is a necessity.
The only caveat I have is my work out of choice is running so many of my selected songs are very beat focused.

Would playlists be helpful in another format? 8Tracks? YouTube? I want to make sure as many people as possible can listen to and use my playlists if wanted!
What’s your favorite song to work out to? Do you have a genre you find yourself in consistently?
