Re: Music While Running?

Do you prefer to listen to music (or podcasts?!) while running?  If so, what is your go-to music or podcast genre to get you in the groove?

Re: Music While Running?

Music and running is a must for me! I love listening to House music DJ sets on sound cloud! Happy running!

Re: Music While Running?

If I've got the energy, I'm listening to Podcast (mostly social science-based shows) but if not EDM to get me pumped. Also, I tend to prefer music when I'm trail running and pods while I'm on the pavement.

Re: Music While Running?

I too feel the need for music when running.  I have tried it without and usually it shows in both times, and stoke.  I'm a bit of a nerd, but I LOVE listeing to Musical Numbers while running (Hamilton anyone?).

Podcasts are the way to go! I often listen to podcasts or audible while running as a way to feel doubley productive. My go too's are usally true crime or current events, or really anything that will keep my mind going. 

Re: Music While Running?

I listen to music with 180 bpm. I find I do best if my stride is about 180 steps per minute, so this helps me keep pace! Something that will motivate you, but alos kind of put you in a sort of trance, whatever that is for you.

I use the “Zombies Run” app and I usually play a spooky goth/dance station in the background. Try it if you haven’t. Highly recommend

Re: Music While Running?

Check out Podrunner They have all kinds of mixes at different bpm. It's considered a "podcast" so can be subscribed to via Apple Music, Google Play Music, etc.

Re: Music While Running?

Music while running is a must. I have learned that running with higher BPM songs can motivate me to keep up a pace. I have been using the Peloton app to utilize the run workouts and those are my new favorite, because the playlist are new and geared for the specific workout!

Re: Music While Running?

Podcasts all the way! I prefer comedy while running. I'm currently hooked on Adulting with Michelle Buteau and Jordan Carlos, and Best Friends with Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata.
