Hello 2017! Running Music Playlist
Happy New Year! Time to get back to running after two weeks of a diet of chocolate, prosecco and Christmas TV Catch Up marathons. I went into Christmas full of good intentions but by Christmas morning that had all evaporated and been replaced by a tin of Quality Street. So a brand, spanking new year and a fresh start. A cliché I know but I enjoyed Christmas, spending time with family and catching up with friends so I don’t feel guilty. Now the challenge is to step away from the remains of the selection box and get out there running again.
So new running music is what is called for, so check out my New Year Running Playlist if you are in need of inspiration and motivation!
All my running music is available to purchase on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon.

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.
Here’s my Running Music Playlist in a handy Infographic

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.
Here’s my Running Music Playlist for May 2016
All my music is available to download on iTunes or any other digital music sites such as Amazon.
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?
