She rocks a few poses in her favorite Asics gear, the “Battlefield” songtress shared how boyfriend Jason Derulo motivated her to become the ultimate running machine.
On what really pushes her to keep running:
“Watching my dad was one of my biggest inspirations. There are days I don’t want to get up, let alone run, and Jason’s a great motivator.”
On her choice of music while on the go:
“Kanye West, Jay Z… and I listen to Jason a lot. I can’t help that- It’s just nice to hear his voice. I’ve also been listening to some new up-tempo stuff of my own that I’m excited for people to hear.”
On keeping her workout routine fun:
“I put my iPod on shuffle and let the song’s face determine my interval. If it’s a slow song, I turn the incline way up and jog to the beat. If a faster song comes on, I turn the incline down and watch the miles fly by.”
