It’s Spring! Time to get outdoors, no more treadmill for me (yes I am a fairweather runner)!  So I’ve put a new running music playlist together.  Some tunes are upbeat, some are on this list just because I like them!

I’m trying to increase my speed so I’m busy looking for inspiration and ideas on Pinterest at the moment; hopefully I’ll be posting something soon!

My workout music playlist needs a bit of an update but this time I’ve had a bit of a throw back to my youth; the 1980s!  So it’s all school disco’s, questionable fashion sense, all things neon, Athena posters, Sony Walkman, Miami Vice, MTV, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and new romantics (well for me anyway).

Hello 2017!  Workout Music Playlist

Happy New Year!  It’s 2017 and a fresh start for me fitness wise after the usual over indulgence of Christmas.  Do I feel at all guilty?  Nope!  Well just a little but isn’t that what Christmas is all about.  So now it’s time to get back to the Gym and getting rid of those few extra pounds I’ve managed to pile on. So I’ve put together a new workout music playlist to help me get back into the swing of things.  I’ve also put together a New Year Running Music Playlist, which is slightly more upbeat but just as good for the Gym.

Summer Workout Playlist 2016

New Gym Workout Playlist for the Summer is a must especially now that it’s countdown to my holiday in Cornwall.  I’ve got a new gym programme, attempting to do 3 HIIT sessions a week and if time will throw in the odd 5km run (weather dependent as I’m a complete fair weather runner).  So here’s my workout music for the summer.

Music can motivate you to push harder when training or can take you mind off a hard set of rep's at the #Gym Click To Tweet

Workout Music Playlist for June 2016

It’s the start of summer.  So a new month means a workout music for me to train to.  Loving the light mornings.  This time last year I tended to train early evening because I didn’t think I had time for a trip to the Gym first thing in the morning.  Now is a different story.  I get my gym kit ready the night before, get my post gym smoothie whizzed up and put in the fridge, and set the alarm for 6am.  Some days I will run especially if the sun is shining but I mainly do use this time of the day to get a training session in at the Gym.

Updating my workout playlist can help to boost my motivation when I am training. New month new playlist! Click To Tweet

So here are my 15 Workout Music Songs for June 2016 in a handy Infographic.

Running Music Playlist June 2016

Okay Summer is here, so I’ve put together my Running Music Playlist for this month.

As I’m waking up earlier I going out for more early morning runs.  Even if the sun isn’t shining over Newcastle it’s still a fab time of the day to get out and run a 5km.  I’ve added a new running route that takes me through Sandyford and Jesmond Vale.  Love being a little nosey and looking at the old Edwardian Terraces, seeing what people have done to their front gardens.  It takes my mind off some of the harder straights and hills.

Summer's here; lighter, brighter mornings perfect for getting in an early morning run. Sets me up for the day! Click To Tweet

Running Music Playlist May 2016

Running Music Playlist May 2016

I’ve been told that running music can boost your performance by up to 15%. If that’s the case then great, I kind of get that if I’m listening to something upbeat as it can seem like my running stride changes. For me, personally, I use music as either a distraction or to focus me on my run, especially if I have to resort to running on the treadmill. To be honest, I don’t always listen to music when I’m running outdoors. If I’m running on a beautiful sunny morning, through the park it’s nice to take in more of what’s going on around me and helps me to enjoy my run just that little bit more. Other times if I want to push myself more or perhaps get a run in the bag I’ll listen to music.  Running music can also make me push on just that little bit further.

We all run very differently, have different running stride lengths and at different paces. When it comes to music we are told to consider the BPM (beats per minute) of a song. After research it seems runners are recommended to run to music that has a falls on the 147 to 160 BPM range. You can actually calculate your own ideal BPM to suit your running pace; I intend to share that in another post once I get my head around it.  I generally think your running stride tends to adjust to the beat of the music so bear that in mind when you put a running playlist together.

When I put my a running playlist together I tend to go for music with a good beat and tunes I like after all who wants to run to something they are not a fan of?  I also like to put in what I call angry songs which are full of driving beats, maybe the odd thrashy guitar and something that builds; these are great for those hard parts of your run like hills or even the home straight when you want to push it a little bit.

Listening to music when running can push you to run harder or even take your mind off a hard run Click To Tweet

Here’s my Running Music Playlist for May 2016

Do you like listening to music when you run or do you prefer to take in what’s going on around you more?  Do you have a Running Music Playlist that motivates you when you are out on a run?

Workout Playlist May 2016

Putting together a new workout playlist is always a great way to perhaps give you an extra bit of motivation at the gym.  I try to change my workout music monthly and hit the shuffle button so it’s hard to second guess what’s coming up next.  I generally like my music to be upbeat but I occasionally chuck a slow one in there just because I like that particular track.

I’ve put together an Infographic of my May 2016 workout music playlist, in case you are in need of a little inspiration.

All my workout playlist songs are available on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon.
