by Lareese Craig Published on 19 December 2014

Heavy breathing, lazy feet and legs like lead, those are just some of the things that NO runner wants to be up against when they’re clocking the miles. If it’s a valuable distraction that you need then a motivational playlist could be all that stands between you and your next PB. So zone out, fight the boredom and turn up these heart-pumping favourites (for the record, we won’t judge you if we see you fist pumping the air). We give you your January running playlist 2017

1. Sigma - Nobody To Love

"I know, you're tired..." it's as if they're actually talking to you.


2. Waze & Odyssey vs R.Kelly - Bump And Grind

The original was good and then THIS happened. Dance and run dance and run.


3. Calvin Harris - Blame

There's no avoiding interval training with beats like this one.


4. Avicii, Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up

Splashing through puddles or wearing out the treadmill, wherever you're running this one's bound to give you a second wind.


5. Beyonce - Drunk In Love

Never. Gets. Old.


6. Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne - Real Love

We challenge you not to sing along. GO.


7. Call My Name (Supasound Remix)

Abs like a Victoria's Secret model coming your way.


8. Eminem - Lose Yourself

You know you're hardcore when you start running with your hood up. Dog walkers think you've lost your sh*t but honey you can run faster than a greyhound.


9. Pink - Raise Your Glass

Nothing like a gentle reminder of what you'll be doing in eight hours time. You've earned it after all!


10. Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger

How could this not be on here?!


11. LMFAO - Party Rock

Everyday I'm shuffling. Or running and losing the will to live.

Bounding over the hills, strumming on your air guitar. As you do.

Fist pumping material right there. It's like musical euphoria.


14. Taylor Swift - Shake It Off

She just makes you feel so happy to be alive even when you're panting like a stallion and dying for a water stop.


15. Jennifer Lopez - On The Floor

This has us dreaming of vacay in Ibiza. Work hard now. Play harder later.


16. Route 94 - My Love ft. Jess Glynne

The perfect track to get you psyched for those early morning jogs.


17. Sia - Chandelier

Ok, we've well and truly lost control of our bodies over this one *considers running barefoot and pirouetting*


18. Rihanna - We Found Love

Running without Rihanna's help? Never gonna happen.
