Finally updated the running playlist. Learned a lot in the past couple months about running, my pace, etc, and I’ve made some changes and additions to the playlist to go along with that. Finishing that half-marathon taught me a lot, too! Read on to check out the changes, and why I made them. Check out the running playlist here!
You’ll notice there’s a lot of slower songs – around 130 bpm – that were added – I’m still in the process of feeling those out on distance runs. They encourage me to keep a pace I can maintain over the course of 13 miles. I’ll have to do a few more long runs to say whether they’re keepers or not, but so far they’re working for me.
ADDITIONALLY – as of right now…everything 146 BPM and faster is part of a second, separate playlist for “sprints” – 5K’s, maybe 10K’s…shorter runs with a much faster pace! Right now I don’t have the endurance, I don’t think, to maintain my 5K pace over much more than a 10K pace…we’ll see what happens.

Again…let’s not forget that disclaimer…just because I’d run to it…doesn’t necessarily mean I’d listen to it in real life.
