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.
Workout music can be a great motivator when you are exercising. It can help take your mind off the a particular exercise, push you on to train harder or even get you to concentrate more. To be honest I don’t always listen to music when I’m training but when I do I try and to mix up the music I listen to and am constantly putting together new playlists.
A couple of people I know have recently got into running, it’s randomly been brought up in conversation (always in the pub) and we’ve always got onto the subject of my own running experiences. This got me thinking about what worked for me and what kept me motivated when I was a beginner runner.
The following list of tips was going to be a top 10 of running tips for the beginner but I found it hard to short-list. These tips are what I found (in reflection) to work for me. I might add I’ve missed out the one about acid reflux and bananas as that’s just me! But if you’re the same Rennie is the answer (apologies there was no real need to share that nugget). Enjoy!
