Dancing in the Streets

The last few posts have been on the more serious side (because, you know, safety and shit), so this one will be more fun.

I had it suggested to help y’all pick music!

To give you an idea of what I run to, see my playlist below.

Right off the bat, you can see I have a BPM labelled. This is for my pacing for any particular run. Find a pace that you are comfortable with and design your playlist around that.

If you need help finding song at your desired BPM, Jog.fm is a great website to use.

I tend to run at a 11:00 min/mile pace, so 155-160 BPM is a comfortable tempo for me. I also do a walk/run, so the slightly faster tempo helps me even out my average. Adjust based on your goals.

Also, don’t be afraid to listen to whatever motivates you. It’s your run and your playlist. There will be no one judging you for rocking out to WHAM!. If hardcore gangster rap hypes up your basic white girl self, embrace it.
