​It's Monday - at least that's what we've been told by the calendar - and while the days are becoming a blur, we still managed to get that sinking feeling on Sunday evening - although that might be more to do with the ongoing global crisis. 


At this point it's hard to tell.

ANYWAY, in an effort to brighten our start to the week, we sat down - by which we mean we chatted via voice note on WhatsApp - with New Zealand women's captain, Ali Riley. 


The former ​Chelsea and ​Bayern Munich player recently made the move back to the USA with Orlando Pride, so we thought now was the perfect time to catch up.

With a distinct lack of football to talk about we decided to ask Ali what her Quarantine Playlist looked like and what music she's listening to to stay level, keep sane and get sweaty to. 


If you've been on the lookout for a new workout playlist, you've found it. Let's go...


Britney Spears / Work B**ch

Alright lets’ see here. It starts out with five songs I listen to when I’m running and doing hard running. They just get me pumped up and keep me going at a fast pace. ‘Work Bitch’ is on every one of my workout playlists, of course.


Just Britney telling me to Work Bitch works every time.


Keke Palmer / Bottoms Up

Then it cools down a little bit. This section has kind of a little more rhythm and a little bit of a different beat. This is perfect if you’re doing some longer running; exercising is all I do right now so this playlist is made with some sort of exercise in mind.


Miguel / Sure Thing

We’ve got a good beat, feel good tunes and then the last song is kind of your cool down. I love Miguel and Sure Thing is one of my favourite songs of all time that I could listen to over and over and over again.


Steel Banglez feat MÖ & Yxng Bane / Your Lovin'

I also wanted to give a little bit of love to Scandinavia. Arigato is a Norwegian singer and of course Icona Pop is Swedish. 


There’s also some UK love in there as well with Steel Banglez and MØ is from Denmark. So I’ve covered a little bit of the globe with my playlist.


​Ali Riley's full playlist can be found on our Spotify channel, right here.
