Special thanks to everyone for the play list suggestions! Music is what keeps me going, especially as the running intervals are getting longer. There were lots of great suggestions, but it was Uptown Funk that got me moving. I watched the video before downloading the song, and it is so much fun.
I have been known to (often) dance and sing along to music – even when not wearing headphones or safely in my car or shower. I can’t actually sing while jogging, but I do have a vivid imagination, so I like to pretend that I don’t have the moves a middle aged ,( little less) out of shape white woman, but somewhere in there is an inner bit of a culture who can dance. Like my hips move not – well, like a middle aged white woman. Basically, I pretty much think that I move much more like this:
Thank like this:
So half way through my run, I’m panting down Bathurst Street (a major artery in Toronto), kind of singing along to Uptown Funk, and sashaying a little here and there, with a huge cheesy grin on my face.
I may have looked silly, but it was a lot of fun!
Next run is the big 20 minutes with no walking intervals. I’ll be doing it in Blind River and hoping I don’t run into the wildlife a friend has talked about seeing.
I think I’ll have Uptown Funk on repeat the whole time.
If you want a smile for the day, watch the video:
I watched it with C and R – who loved it. But C wanted to know why he kept singing “woo ooo” when the women walked by. I told her he really liked their shoes….
