Having a good playlist to listen to while running is huge for me. I know that not everyone is super keen on having music blasting in their ears when they want to focus on their run or race, but I have to have it. I will actually start to panic (just a little) if I am on a run and my iPod dies. I like to think that I have an interesting mix; pop, pop rock, rock, hip hop. You name it, I have it….except country. Definitely, no country. I have an iPod shuffle just for running that I can clip on and not worry about having to hold anything or needing a case to hold something.
I think it is important to mix up the music you listen to while running to keep things fresh. The last thing you want is a playlist that you are bored with when you are looking for something to motivate you and give you a boost. I like to add/remove songs about every 4 weeks
At the moment, this some of the music that keeps my legs going:
(I have a lot of Foo Fighters on my shuffle, but Walk has the best beat and I always feel an extra push when it comes on)
Besides making me feel like I am 17 again, I love the power behind the music.
Watch The Throne is one of my favourite concerts to date. Otis is my ultimate favourite song from these two.
it’s poppy, it’s dancey (is that word?), it’s fun.
Without You – David Guetta & Usher
Even though it starts off slow, once Usher gets going so do I.
As a general rule I am not a Pitbull fan, but for running I make an exception.
I hope to see you out there running. Just don’t sneak up on me because I won’t hear you coming 😉
