Music


I like running to old school Run DMC, Dropkick Murphys, Jurassic 5, AC/DC, Rage Against the Machine, etc.

I think my current power song is set to one on The Prodigy's latest disc "Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned".

What do you like to run to? Powersong?

Re: Music


I first set my powersong up with freedom by Rage Against the Machine, but I really like the Nike+ Orginal Run workout by the Crystal Method. That song that comes in at about the 36 minute mark, I think its called Bad Ass really picks me up. Unfortunately that workout is only a 45 minute workout and last night my 6.2 miler took me like 1hr 5min, so this is a new goal of mine, I'm putting it in print, I want to get my 10k time back under 45 minutes! I got some serious work to do.

I'm really curious about that Crystal Method track. Only thing is, I don't think the 30-second preview on iTunes can really do justice to a 45-minute piece of music.

Re: Music


One thing that has surprised me is that I find I prefer slower or more consistent-tempo songs while running. I initially loaded my iPod up with a lot of high energy music--thinking I would need it to keep my energy up. But, after a few runs I've discovered that I really only like those songs as my "Power Song". When I'm just trying to find a good pace, the high-energy songs are [sign in to see URL].

Re: Music


I have quite a big playlist that I shuffle but have found that starting out to 'I bet you look good on the dancefloor' by the Arctic Monkeys is a great boost!

Other than that I have a good mix of stuff from Black Grape, Gorrillaz and Faithless to Foo Fighters, Metallica and Faith No More. Have the entire first RATM album on there as it is essential!

Current Powersong is Supermassive Black Hole by Muse.
