The Best 5k Running Playlist

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Coming back at y’all with another installment of my monthly 5k running playlist.  I am run to music kind of person, more power to the people who enjoy the sound of their breathing and their feet hitting the pavement……but I am completely motivated by music.  When I used to teach spin, I would spend hours constructing the most perfect playlists.  The songs to pump you up at the right time, the one or two songs that give you a breather and then the sprint to the finish.  I still love finding new tunes to help you get off that couch and get your blood pumping!

Here are my previous running playlists here and here in case you missed them and make sure to checkout my fitness tab at the top of the blog for more workout motivation!  Here is the Spotify 5k Running Playlist.


Also, here are a few of my favorite workout finds.  You know you always feel like working out when you have fun workout clothes on! Loving these funky prints by Zara Terez.  Koral activewear is still the top of my list right now.  The back details on the Beyond Yoga Bras are so pretty!  The Michi leggings have been restocked in all sizes.  They have also added a lot to the activewear sale, so make sure you check out that section as well!

    I’ll have to save some of these to play when it’s my turn to pick out some songs at running club. Yup that’s right.. We run with a mini speaker from time to time!!

    I need a good playlist in order to be motivated to run. I haaaaaaate running, so the music is a must. When you can get good, upbeat music, it’s so much better!

  14. February 17, 2016 / 3:52 PM

    i have weird taste in music when i run (or, all the time) but i have never made a playlist specifically for a certain distance or time. maybe i should try that and see if it motivates me…

  15. February 17, 2016 / 4:22 PM

    Girl, you look so awesome! Cool music choices . . . love to know what others are listening to, especially when they run!

  16. February 17, 2016 / 6:22 PM

    I cannot WAIT to start running again! Although I’ve never been able to run with music. So weird I know. I like to focus on my breathing I guess.

  17. February 17, 2016 / 9:11 PM

    I will have to listen through your list, it is time for a good change up for me!! Love your outfit!

  18. February 17, 2016 / 9:29 PM

    I cannot handle the treadmill without a great music lineup!!

  19. February 17, 2016 / 11:19 PM

    I’m loving this playlist girl! Perfect timing too because I’m going to attempt a longer run tomorrow at the gym so this playlist will get good use! So far Poison is my favorite, so upbeat yet chill at the same time!

  20. February 19, 2016 / 6:29 AM

    What a great playlist for running.
    I have GOT to get back on the wagon. Maybe I’ll attempt a run this weekend. It will be my first in MONTHS. Yikes.

    Gosh, I need to crawl out from under the rock I’m living under because I don’t even know half of these songs! And I don’t doubt that they are great ones coming from you! Thanks for sharing! I’ll get up to the times eventually… ;)

    Great list! Have I shared some of the barre instructors I follow on Spotify that have AMAZING barre lists?! If not, holler and I’ll hook you up.
