Ran a bit today. 500m runs. Seven of them. Two minute gaps (approx.) between them. This was suggested as something that might be good for me. So I'm trying it. This absolutely requires music. Music of my choosing, that is. Not the(mostly)terrible shit piped into the gym. This is what was shuffled up today:
  • Beastie Boys: Egg Man [1989]
  • Funk Fusion Band: Can You Feel it (Progressive Version) [1981]
  • Don Covay: Sookie Sookie [1966]
  • Dizzee Rascal ft. Calvin Harris & Chrome: Dance Wiv Me [2008]
  • The Stone Roses: She Bangs the Drums [1989]
  • Jackie Mittoo: Ghetto Organ [1971]
  • Gogol Bordello: Start Wearing Purple [2006]
  • Kreayshawn: Gucci Gucci [2011]
  • Mustafa Ozkent: Dolana Dolana [1973]
Two observations: weird coincidence to have three tracks shuffled up which each have titles composed of the same word repeated; I am not conscious of ever having heard a Justin Bieber song so I don't know which one was playing (silently, to me) when I looked up at one of the gym's TV screens and noticed that a video of his seems to involve some kinda rapey, creepy breaking-and-entering/kidnap scenario...
