9. Missy Elliott, “Lose Control”
The hypnotic sounds on this track are perfect for pace running and getting into a zone.
10. Nas and Puff Daddy, “Hate Me Now”
There’s a recurring theme of anger with this mix, but it’s hard not to feel like a boss in the gym or on the track with this song playing.
11. Nas, “Made You Look”
The perfect ‘psych out’ song to get you ready for competition. Ha, made you look!
12. Nicki Minaj, “Starships”
Lighthearted, danceable, fun. Sometimes you just need a song with a lot of energy and a reminder of soaking up the sun.
