Sunday Scribblings - Walk

I HEART my iPod. Its user friendly, does what I tell it to, it’s way cute and portable, its commercial free, has tunes to cheer me up, goes for eight hours, you can shuffle your tunes with just one button, it has more than once it has blocked out the noise of my children, connets me about through the iTunes Store, AND my i Pod motivates me to get up and get moving.

My iMix for walking was inspired by my sister-in-laws’ passion for playlists on her iPod. I have a short attention span for exercising, and she encouraged me to make playlists for different occasions. Most fitness gurus suggest a playlist with a consistent beat, but this one keeps me guessing and giggling.

Walking on Sunshine – Katrina & the Waves
Walk this Way – Aerosmith
Walk this Way – Run DMC & Aerosmith
Walk On – U2
Walk On – Kelly Clarkson
Walk Away – Pink
Don’t Walk Away – Bad English
I Walk the Line – Johnny Cash
Walk like an Egyptian – The Bangles
These Boots Were Made for Walking – Nancy Sinatra
Walking on the Moon – The Police
Wakin’ on the Sun – Smashmouth
Walking in Memphis – Marc Cohn
Walking After Midnight – Patsy Cline
Walking on Broken Glass – Annie Lenox
Walk on By – Aretha Franklin
The Long & Winding Road – The Beatles and ...
Gimme Three Steps - Lynyrd Skynyrd

I also found a couple of good sites for walking playlists. Try: Walky Talk and Quick and Simple. And if I ever become a runner (one of my 2008 goals) I want to try the Nike iPod Sports Kit.

Let me know -
What are the tunes that get you going?

Sunday Scribblings was set up to provide inspiration and motivation for anyone who enjoys writing and would like a weekly challenge. Join in!

What an excellent idea to use "walking" as a playlist theme.

Hmmm, I walk and run, so maybe I could use part of your list, plus Runaround Sue, Run For Your Life, Born to Run, . . .

I'd better get on that.

Cool list! and what a fun idea.

When I'm on the treadmill, I usually listen to NPR talk radio shows on my iPod.
