Fall 2015 Workout Playlist

I know this is technically still the first week of fall, but the current weather situation in the Metro Detroit area has me diving in face first.

We’ve already made a few pumpkin recipes (I still can’t stop eating these pumpkin spice cookies…) and I’m dying to visit the cider mill. Again. I’m completely smitten.

Can you blame me though?

With a high in the low 60s and low in the mid forties, it’s what I like to call the perfect running weather. The sun has also been peeking out a lot lately, so it’s hard not to want to spend the entire day walking the trails.

You won’t find me on the trails today, but I am looking forward to attending a barre class in the park tonight. That’s right, Rochester is finally getting Pure Barre! I know… I’m excited too. It will be nice to get outside pre-sunset and feel the barre burn again!

Anyways, all of this fall talk brings me to the newest set of tunes I have been enjoying on all of these said perfect fall runs lately.

I started putting this list together at the beginning of September, and it just keeps growing.

I love the upbeat tempos!

Fall 2015 Running and Workout Playlist

(You can stream and even download this exact playlist here.)

This time, I added the cool down song into the mix because it’s still got a great beat. Anddd maybe because I love Carly Rae Jepson.

I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve been listening to this playlist almost every day. I’ve been automatically putting it on during my workouts and even turning to it when I need an upbeat pick-me-up in the afternoons.

As you might have gathered from my latest Weekly Workouts post, I’ve been spending a lot of my free time on walks with this guy lately. I’m also testing out the new Polar Loop 2 (a full review will be coming soon!), so I’ve been extra walk-happy to make sure and get in my steps on the days I sit at the computer for hours and hours.

Roadie and I have been thoroughly loving the crisp in the air, and I have been racing home from teaching at night in order to be able to fit in a quick run around the neighborhood.

While I’m not entirely happy that the sun is setting earlier and earlier as the days pass by, I have to admit that catching the sunsets on my nightly adventures is absolutely stunning.

Give me pink skies and a great set of tunes, and I’m good to go for miles!

I hate to cut it short today, but I’ve got some errands to run before heading into work at the gym today. I’m putting some games together for a very special bridal shower this weekend, and I am also looking forward to the excuse to get crafty again.

I’ll be sure to share how they went after the weekend!

Hello from warm and sunny Orlando, Florida! Despite what the amazing ambiance around me suggests, it still is technically winter around here. After living in Michigan for three winter seasons now, I almost forgot what it feels like to a lot of (lucky) people living south of us around this time of year. In my home city,…
