Top 10 Workout Songs for July

Running a 5K for the 4th of July? Logging miles at the gym to avoid training in the oven that is outside? I don't know about you, but I'm having a tough time motivating myself to exercise in this heat. I'm sweaty before I even get to the gym, I can swim in Lake Michigan without shivering because I left my wetsuit at home, and I'll get soaked in a yoga class and the heat that usually gets me to go in the first place isn't even turned on. But if I'm going to run in this weather, I either need a running buddy or some tunes to push me through those miles.

Most of the time I'm going with the latter because my husband leaves me in his dust, and Liz and I only wish we could run together more frequently. And lucky for me--and you, if you're finding yourself in a similar situation--Run Hundred just released its top songs for July so I can refresh my playlist. What's even better is the site's founder, Chris Lawhorn, says that this list is full of unusual suspects. I didn't notice until he mentioned it, but Lady GaGa, Pitbull, Katy Perry and Rihanna are regulars on these lists. Not this time around. With the exception of Rihanna, the other hits are a break from the norm.

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred.

Wiz Khalifa - Work Hard, Play Hard - 70 BPM
Waka Flocka Flame, Nicki Minaj, Tyga & Flo Rida - Get Low - 125 BPM
The Pretty Black Chains - Ambulance - 153 BPM
Matchbox Twenty - She's So Mean - 120 BPM
Juan Magan - Bailando Por Ahi - 131 BPM
Russell Brand & Catherine Zeta-Jones - We Built This City / We're Not Gonna Take It - 143 BPM
One Direction - One Thing - 127 BPM
Justin Bieber & Ludacris - All Around the World - 130 BPM
Rihanna - Where Have You Been - 128 BPM
Nero - Promises - 144 BPM
