My ultimate playlist for feeling empowerment as a woman

So, things have been moving along this month. I have been really busy (but grateful for this) with work. I am not sure if I really put this out there, but I work two jobs, my full time job is doing individual therapy inpatient and outpatient for a local mental health organization. My second is personal training at a local gym and also have been doing some coaching for a running club. So I basically have been working in overhaul to help get some clients caught up on sessions that they missed during the holiday season at the gym and have been working 55 hours a week since my marathon cycle ended! This has put my own training in a weird predicament. The timing is good, because my body needed a rest from OCS followed by a tough 4.5 months of marathon training. I have been focusing more on recovery, strengthening my body back up, mobility, and just running for… FUN. No watches or major paces to watch… which is actually refreshing. It’s making me remember why I loved it in the first place. I have finally picked a fall race and will be training for the 7 bridges marathon in Chattanooga in October. My training will start back up in June.

So as many of you know from my last blog post, I recently went through a break up. It made me feel a lot of things I haven’t felt in a while. For the first time since getting a divorce, I had truly opened up 100% to someone else and that was not easy. I also fell hardcore for this person which makes it tough to get over (as much as I put on a front that it’s not that bad). All things happen for a reason and I definitely learned a few lessons, so it was not a completely bad thing. Focusing on work and strength training has really helped, but so did making a super awesome playlist to listen to during my workouts and to/from work everyday. Here it is in case any of you amazing girls that follow me need a mix of new and old tunes to get you over a hump. If this doesn’t represent how diverse my taste in music is, I don’t know what else does!
