I love running, but if I’m being honest with myself, I’m not the best at it. I’m not that fast and I have to take several walk breaks. I concede that, I’m at peace with it. I try my hardest, and listening to energetic music definitely helps me out with that. I keep my iPhone loaded with fast-paced tunes that me want to go faster. Here are some that I have on my playlist right now:
You’ve probably noticed that they are all house tunes, of one variety or another. I find house music to be the only genre to provide me with the energy and pace needed for running. I know a lot people listen to Top 40 songs while running, but I find that tempo to be too slow. What do you listen to? And what is it about that type of music that makes it good for running? If there is some other genre that I haven’t even considered, please comment!
