Throw it back to some 2009 classic Beyoncé.  This track is slower-paced and will encourage you to keep climbing and really push through the stretch and soreness that you might start to feel.

Track Eleven: Yesterday (Atmosphere) 

Just when you were reminded that you’re unstoppable, it’s time to slow it down again!  You’re almost there!

And finally, let’s end it with a slow and sweet one that will have you contemplating our universe.  Now you’re ready to take on anything!
