Running song of the month

9 Mar

I’ve been running 5 times a week so have been tuning into my iPod a fair bit.

Thanks for the suggestions that people gave last month. I tried out Zombie Run (Thanks Cecilia) which was great fun but I nearly fell off the treadmill when doing it inside! I think I i’ll stick it using it outside!! and I still haven’t got round to trying out running to Taylor Swift but will have a flick through her stuff to see if there are any tunes that jump out at me (thanks Amy!)

Anyway this month’s song I have nominated is Titanium (feat. Sia) – Nothing But the Beat Ultimate by David Guetta featuring Sia. I have been flicking to this song a lot on runs to keep me motivated.Running song of the month

Enjoy and happy running 🙂


Running song of the month

1 Aug

Oops I realised it has been ages since I posted a running song of the month. My music taste is all over the place at the moment but I checked my most popular training song for the last couple of months and it surprised me! It’s a bit lower tempo than my usual running beaty songs but it’s a cool song to train to if you concentrate on the beat and the words. Running song of the month

It’s Muse – Uprising which I love as the whole album – The Resistance is about one of my favourite books of all time – 1984! If you’ve read it you’ll understand the lyrics – awesome with a great beat to train to!

You can listen to it here 🙂 Had to put in as a link as Aple’s Linkmaker wouldn’t work!

Muse – Uprising

It’s time for Running Song of the Month again. Running song of the month

I chose this month’s song because it really is a feel good fun song to train to. Whatever mood I am in it helps me push myself. It’s a reasonably quick BPM and makes me feel a bit girly!

So this month’s song of the month is:

California Gurls – Katy Perry –  see the link for iTunes here – California Gurls  – haven’t worked out how best to out the Android link on yet but will do for next month.

My running song of the month this month I first heard in a Body Combat  class years ago  when I lived in London. It has real energy and is a great one for sprints or when you really don’t feel very motivated!

So this month’s song of the month is – Scooter, Back in the UK

Scooter, Back in the UK

Back In the U.K - Jumping All Over the World - Best of Scooter

For some reason it won’t link directly to the song so go to song 16 if you want to listen 🙂

My running song of the month

1 Jul

This month’s running song of the month is not to my normal music taste but it’s a great song that I fins empowers and motivates me to run especially up hills and sprints 🙂  The words are pretty good too and they got me through a tough time in my life and so this will always be on my running track list.

It’s not a fast BPM song but there’s something about it that just makes me move.

So here it is.

My favourite running song of the month is:

Britney Spears – ‘Stronger’

Check it out on iTunes here:  Stronger - Greatest Hits: My Prerogative

My running song of the month

23 May

I’ve been thinking about regular post ideas for my blog and I thought how about a running song of the month post.

Basshunter - Now You're Gone

My favourite running song of the month.

I love my music and I love running with music inside on the treadmill, it helps ease the monotony. I tend not to run outside with music unless I am running with a group of people and I can always see someone and am not generally running across lots of roads.

So here it is.

My favourite running song of the month is:

Basshunter – ‘Now You’re Gone

I play this tune when I need a real rocket in my pants to finish my run or feel good and want to push. I’ve linked to it below on iTunes so you can download it or listen to it. The words are a bit crazy and he is going on about someone he misses and he’s been waiting by the telephone but I don’t tend to listen to the words just the beat 🙂

Now You're Gone (Radio Edit) - Now You're Gone (feat. DJ Mental Theo's Bazzheads) - EP

Let me know what you think.

What’s your favourite song to run to at the moment?

Are you an anti social runner?

19 Nov

I think I am an anti social runner.

I find it really hard to run and chat unless I am running way slower than I would normally. I ran with my friends earlier this week and ended up running in the middle of two groups quite happy that way as it mean’t I could plug in to my iPod and push on.

I have those days when I like to just chill out and run, but these days I am finding I use my running as a filtering system and to run and think things through. Running clears the mind and soul and it’s often the only time I really have to myself to regurgitate the day/week.

What do you think about when you run?

And do you like to run with or without music? What’s your favourite running track? – Mine is currently  Bass Hunter – ‘Now You’re Gone
