That's My Jam! - Running Playlist
Do you like to listen to music while you workout?
Did you know that music is considered performance enhancing?
- Music can reduce your rate of perceived effort by 12% and improve your endurance by 15%
- It promotes "being in the zone" and helps block out other distractions
- You can increase your work output by synchonizing your movement to music
- Music triggers good emotions and helps you experience greater pleasure from the activity
I'm definitely a runner that basically needs to have music. Every once in a while, I'll purposefully run without music, to turn into my surroundings (e.g., if I'm in a new city, running in the dark, or just wanting to practice mindfulness). And, then there are the times that I'm inadvertently w/out tunes when my earphones aren't charged :-/
When I'm running, I like to have a fast beat and songs that are catchy to help me get into a rhythm and groove.
Here's my current playlist. Check it out if you're looking for new tunes. Its got pop, alternative, punk and classic rock.
I'm always looking to add more! What's on yours?
