Running Music Playlist
1. Running, No Doubt: Warm up with a slow walk, picking up the pace during the choruses.
2. Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen: Although we may not have all been born to run, this tune is perfect for building up to a jog, whether you’re a beginner runner or an Olympic athlete.
3. Ready to Run, Dixie Chicks: When the Dixie Chicks are ready ready ready ready to run, you should run faster, too.
4. Let’s Get It Started, Black Eyed Peas: Let the chorus be your guide. Get a sprint started when the Peas want to “get it started in here” and recover between the choruses.
5. Play, David Banner: Be warned, the explicit version is explicit. Enjoy this steady song and maintain your pace.
6. Break My Stride, Blue Lagoon: This version’s a little more fast-paced than the original, so feel free to pick up the pace again.
7. Runnin’ Down a Dream, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Recover from your last push for the first half of this song, then pick up the pace again.
8. Run For Your Life, The Beatles: Pick up the momentum here for a minute, then recover before your last push.
9. Police On My Back, The Clash: Speed up your pace for the last time here, pushing yourself when they start listing all the days of the week they run.
10. Run, Collective Soul: Slow it down, ending on with a walk during this cool-down song. Pat yourself on the back for a run well done!
