Help- I need your kick ass tunes ( running 5k)
43

Pringlemunchers · 07/05/2017 14:18

I have been walk/jogging 5k on the treadmill, for about 2 months. I am about to step out into the real world and really, really need some music. Something that pushes you on? Any recommendations?

If you're that way musically inclined, "Na na na" by My Chemical Romance is ace.

My absolute favourite at the moment.

As cheesy as it sounds I have the imaginatively named "Now that's what I call Running". Some great tunes on there

I started the couch to 5k about a month ago. The right music really helps. Some of my tunes include:

Fight song by Rachel Platten
Roar by Katy Perry
More than a feeling by Boston
Rock you like a hurricane by The Scorpions
Don't stop believing by Journey
Rockabye baby by Clean Bandit
Raise your glass by Pink

Power ballads are brilliant if you like that sort of thing which i do!

I have

I predict a riot - kaiser chiefs
Changed the way you kissed me - example
One foot - fun

I hit the wrong playlist the other week and had harder to breathe by maroon 5 which was quite fitting as it was a bad nasal morning for me

I listen to a mix bag not really aimed at running I like songs I know as they tend to go quicker so running time seems shorter Wink

Brilliant ideas. Love of of these. I am not fussy and will listen to anything! It gets boring listening to the same old tunes, so any new suggestions are great. My personal faves are dance, rock, pop,cheesy 80's, just not jazz or country :0)

I put a dubstep mix on YouTube when I'm on my treadmill. It's quite angsty and keeps me going!

So not music BUT if you fancy something a little different, I am listening to the Serial podcast while running. It's real life crime cases relooked into, bit weird but really interesting, works for me x

Ace of Spades - Motörhead

You can't always get what you want - Rolling Stones (more for the lyrics than the tempo).

Love is wicked brick and lace. Timbaland and the hives throw it on me.

Almost, but not quite. Maybe next week...

Do you use Spotify? If so they have a 'workout' section in genres, in there are lots of readymade workout playlists.
They range from indie, rock, hip hop, drum n bass or pop workout playlists, or you can even go with a specific decade like the 80's, 90's or 00's workout.

It's worth a look, I put many of these playlists on to motivate myself to clean up the house Grin
