Playlist to keep you moving

So, did you get new sneaks? Renew a commitment to your gym membership? Making green smoothies all week?
This week, I'm pretty sure the bigger accomplishment was getting 3 kids in winter gear, each with a change of shoes loaded into the van and making the snowy trek to the gym but you can be sure after such effort, I made it worth it on the treadmill.
You may want to read my post "How NOT TO QUIT Running" which I feel qualified to write because nearly every 1st mile I come up with a reason to quit so I've learned to SET MYSELF UP to KEEP MOVING!
A new playlist goes a long way.
I re-created mine in Spotify so that you can give it a try.
This playlist is organized from warm up to cool down. Between the first couple & last few they've all got a beat for running.
I included a song for weights, a song for abs, and for stretching too (end of playlist).

Songs for Warm up:
Best Day Of My Life (American Authors)
Hey Brother (Avicii)
Song to Bump up your speed:  
Counting Stars (One Republic)
Song for when you feel like you're going to quit:  
Roar (Katy Perry)
Songs for slowing down/walk:  
Story of My Life (One Direction)
Unconditionally (Katy Perry)
Cool down: Just Give Me A Reason (Pink)
*Weights: 
Electric Feel (Preston Pohl, The Voice performance-*not on Spotify)
Abs:  
Mirrors (Justin Timberlake)
*Stretching:
A Case of You (James Wolpert, The Voice performance-*not on Spotify)


While you're moving: (in case you can't listen via Spotify)
Wake Me Up (Avicii)
Gone, Gone, Gone (Phillip Phillips)
Can't Hold Us (Macklemore)
LITO (Press Play)
NY2LA (Press Play)
One Top of the World (Imagine Dragons)
Best Song Ever (One Direction)
Cups (Pitch Perfect, Anna Kendrick)
Happy (Pharrell Williams, from Despicable Me)
Am I missing one that keeps you moving?
