OK baby lets go dancing

OK baby lets go dancing

It's very nearly my 3 year runniversary. I have been trying for the last year to work on my speed alongside my marathon training.

I watched American Hussle at the weekend and I love it... The clothes, music, vibe etc and I particularly love the disco scene. See clip:

So I downloaded the disco mix of, ' I feel love,' this morning and had it on a loop. It was fabulous, I did some boogie moves and it really powered me on. As a result I got two new PB's... I am soooooooooo made up. Pic is me in elated mood just after I finished.

5k: 26.54

1 mile: 8.23

Just goes to show the effect music can have...

Happy panthering

  • See if you can find the Patrick Cowley Mega-mix of IFL. 15 and a half minutes of disco oblivion.

  • Oh wow I must find it... I so need to go out dancing too. I wonder if it's on iTunes?? I need at least 5 hours of tracks for Brighton !!!!

  • Found him... I love Menergy!!!

  • and Do you Wanna Funk.

  • Just downloaded that too... Can't wait to have them all on a rol for Bath Half on Sunday. I think I'd better wear disco running stuff too?

  • Yay - well done! Very speedy :)

    My recent PBs were also music fuelled so I agree totally.

    I better get me some disco!!!!!

  • Disco is the way to go for PB's, it's the fast beat!!

  • I just bought "100 Disco Hits"!

    Honestly, this running malarkey makes you do some odd things :)

  • That's more the speed of a cheetah than a panther ;)

    Superb time juicy :)

  • Thanks Rob :)

  • Well done... You disco diva xx but hold on a second... fluorescent... lycra.. headband... aren't you ALREADY wearing '80's disco gear' when you are out running? Put on some ' leg warmers' and you have the full set?

  • Just need the hot pants!!

  • Well there's always a lot of 'hot panting' when I run... You can borrow some of mine...

  • Fantastic times! Getting the right music really helps I think! Good luck with the Bath half too!🙂

  • Thankyou, I'm really quite nervous!!

  • Google blue man group and have a listen to venus hum version of I feel love. You might go even faster

  • They are hilarious ( and a bit scary looking!!) and very fast beat!!! 🤖

  • Congrats on the PB JJ - loving the music choice :-)

  • Thankyou, great music it so is!!!

  • Fab times JJ! Brilliant. I use to love discos and this song just brings it all back! The other one that always got me on the dance floor is "Can you feel it". Oooh I must add these to my playlist! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

  • Me too, and ooooh yes I'll get that too ready for Bath!!

  • I wonder if that's why I'm slow, listening to folk chatting about their wheelchairs or bipolar on BBC Ouch or Gardener's Question Time or Infinite Monkey Cage.. or Arvo Pårt?

    Lovely post!

  • That's had me in stitches, I can't really imagine running listening to Bob Flowerdew talking about his pansies!!!!

  • I'm huge disco fan, will definitely download some Donna Summer, even better I have tickets to see Earth Wind and Fire in July at the O2, Boogie Wonderland ticks all my boxes :-) !!!!!

  • Disco queen! Love it.
