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.

Newly added:
128 BPM – Selena Gomez – Slow Down 
128 BPM – Justin Bieber ft. Nicki Minaj – Beauty & A Beat 
128 BPM – Ke$ha – Warrior
128 BPM – Ke$ha – Die Young
130 BPM – Selena Gomez – Come & Get It (Dave Aude Club Remix)
130 BPM – Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat 
130 BPM – Pitbull ft. Ke$ha – Timber 
132 BPM – Rage Against The Machine – Sleep Now In The Fire
133 BPM – The Offspring – Hit That
140 BPM – Lady Gaga – Applause 
143 BPM – The Offspring – (Can’t Get My) Head Around You 
160 BPM – Metallica – Ain’t My Bitch

Back on the list:
139 BPM – Britney Spears – Toxic (Armand Van Helden Remix) 

Cut From The List:
123 BPM – Shiny Toy Guns – Le Disko (too slow)
215 BPM – Good Charlotte – Lifestyles of The Rich And The Famous (too fast)

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.
