It may be raining in Texas, but I believe we can officially call it summertime! And what goes better with summertime than some good ol' country music! HELLO, I'M A TEXAN! Just imagine it though, an afternoon at the pool, a cold sonic drink in hand, then driving home in your swimsuit and the windows rolled down singing your heart out to some good country music! Nothing sings SUMMERTIME like that to my Texas heart. Today though, I won't be talking all about country music, so don't check out on this blog yet.....because although that scenario sounds great, country music isn't exactly my favorite workout music!
Today I will be sharing my Top 5 Hits on my Summer Workout Playlist (specifically for working out/running), PLUS My Favorite Yoga Playlist! And if you have Spotify or choose to use it, then my playlist will be made available to you!
Okay, as you will see with the Yoga Playlist I am sharing below, I am LOVING Acoustic Covers on Spotify! So a lot of my favorite workout jams these days are acoustic! But don't think necessarily coffee house style, put you to sleep music. They may be classified as acoustic, but still have some spunk to them!
(Click on the song titles to find them on Spotify)
-It's an acoustic version, and SO MUCH FUN! A little side note, when I discovered this amazing version of this song, I grabbed my husband on my back porch, and we literally danced to this entire song! This song is great for running, or at Stroller Strides we do an awesome ab workout to this entire song! Definitely a burner!
-Seriously, I LOVE THIS SONG! And it's so much fun to workout to! It really puts an extra pep in your step, or a pep in your rep! (haha see what I did there) Especially when you are getting tired during a workout! And it's so much fun to sing to!
-Also such a fun and upbeat one for working out!
-Now I know most people love to workout to fast, upbeat tempo'd music, but that's not always the case for me. Even before I became a Yoga Instructor, I always enjoyed running to slow, inspirational or worship music. So I absolutely love this song and had to include it!
-So in the spirit of it being summer and me being a Texan, I had to include a little country music...and my favorite is Rascal Flatts! I love them and love to listen to them any time!

So when I talked my husband into running a half marathon with me, he said under one condition. That we would get Spotify Premium. It's like $12 or $14 a month, so I was like, "Whatever..." We had intentions to cancel it after the first few months, but then I realized how amazing it is for my Yoga music as well! PLUS, OMG you can follow your friends, and check out their playlists, and share your playlists with people!
So I created the most amazing Yoga Playlist....too bad I didn't name it something fun (and now don't know how to change the name). But basically it's acoustic versions of in songs, and perfect for Yoga. It's also my go-to playlist when I'm hanging out, cleaning, or studying for my ACE exam!
Also, I would love for you to share my playlist with others! Click to tweet above, or hover over the image to PIN it!
