Hi music fans! As most of you know, I'm training for the NYC marathon this year and music helps me run better, get less bored, and it also helps me keep up the pace. I'm a slow runner, so I need songs in the 130-140 beats-per-minute range, interspersed I can throw in some faster paced songs (up to 160-180 bpm), and also some slower ones. For marathon playlists, I think they recommend you for the marathon to start fast paced, then slow down a bit the bpm, then increase again, and to avoid "dying" near the end, at the last mile or two, play some very upbeat songs. I prefer rock, but Latin, reggae, Middle Eastern, etc., it's all good as long as it's upbeat and within the beats per minute. No easy-listening of course. The music is supposed to pump you up without making you run too much faster than your usual pace, otherwise one may start out too strong and be too tired later on.
Do you accept the challenge? :-)
Suggesting songs is cool, but I'm lazy and I want you to do the work for me, if you compile a whole playlist it would even be better! Then I can buy the songs in iTunes and upload them to my iPod Nano.
Thanks in advance! I'll be thinking of all of you guys who suggested songs or made playlists. My running time for the marathon will be between 4:30 and 5 hours so I need MANY great songs!
i do not know the name of this song,
(seems like good pace)
but, IT'S WORKING FOR THIS BABY!!!!
sorry for derail, but this is not to be missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Were you self-hypnotizing?
I thought it made both time and distance shorter - so, maybe ;-)
