welcome to the board (and running !) Jodi. You'll find some like running to music, others don't. I always do, just keep your wits about you, especially if your route is at all busy. A bit of tempo is what you want, but beyond that depends on your own taste. Some like dance, for me it has to be rock/metal/punk.

Really cheesy pop / dance music works for me. To my eternal shame, obviously :confused: Of course, there's no way I'd listen to Aqua or the Crazy Frog song when I'm not running. No way. Nope, never. Well, hardly ever...

I reckon you should have some different styles of music for different running paces.

Like drum n bass/ Fast Rock song for all out running.
Hip Hop for more steady runs etc.

I think any song that has a beat will suffice as a good running song.

Theres a few music running podcasts worth checking out.

If your into dance music you can usally download free dj mixes from forums etc.

These are the best to run to.

Despite my previous post quoting rock/metal/punk as my choice for running, I have a notion to make up a playlist of numbers from musicals (Oh the Deadwood Stage is a-rollin' on over the plains .........) :embarrassed:

For some reason, Bonnie Tyler's "Holding out for a Hero" seems to make me run really fast. the song came on my ipod 6 miles into a 10 mile run and I clocked a 6 minute 10 second mile without even really trying to push myself (My usual long run pace is 7 min 20 sec).

I too would try to run away from a Bonnie Tyler song ;)

The Presets- "Cookie" and "Are you the one?" are really good they keep you moving. MGMT's "The Youth" and "Electric Feel" also. Ying Yang Twin's "Shake it like a salt shaker"
Jimmy Eat World "Pain"
Hope you try them out, they work out amazing for me, I run frequently and these are always on my list.

Depends on the run....If I want to run a PB, then Heavy metal loon music does the trick, if just a basic training then something rocky with guitars, I particularly like MUSE.

Must admit it does take a while to get used to walking or running with music, at first especially me, tend to bump into things or fall over low walls into bushes etc...
