The treadmill is elevated to eighteen degrees, your legs have more in common with jelly than whatever that dessert was that Aunt Josie brought to Thanksgiving dinner last year, and you still have a lot of walking to do.

Instead of dreading one final mile, imagine anticipating two final songs.

Take it from a lifelong lover of great music: it is so much easier to jog for two songs than it is to jog for six minutes.

A great playlist can make tough workouts bearable and it can make a good workout a great one. Here are a few of the songs that provide the upbeat soundtrack to our works around here at Mediplan Diet Services lately.

First, a few brand new chart toppers to add to your playlist:

Sugar by Maroon 5

Time of Our Lives by Pitbull

Heroes by Alesso

Elastic Heart by Sia

I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepsen

Shut Up and Dance with Me by Walk the Moon

Over the past couple of months, these songs have been racing up the charts and they can soon have your heart racing during your next run.

Do your tastes not exactly trend toward the cutting edge? If you prefer a playlist filled with classic hits instead of the latest trendsetters, the music buffs at Mediplan can still help you out. Here are a few of our old favorites that still manage to get our hearts pumping:

Work it by Missy Elliot

Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake

Back to Life by Soul 2 Soul

Pump Up the Jam by Technotronic

Gonna Make you Sweat by C+C Music Factory

Push It by Salt and Pepa

Thunderstruck by AC/DC

Let’s sync our iTunes, create a Spotify playlist – or heck make a mixtape, remember those – and find inspiration in great, upbeat, an energetic music!
