This 5K Playlist Will Get You To the Finish Line
Sure you can run with your thoughts, but isn't it a lot better to run with music?
Yes. Yes it is.
When I first started running, the summer after high school, I ran with my friend Bridget and we talked the whole time. I know, you're thinking, Michelle... if you can talk while you're running you aren't trying that hard.
You're right. If you can talk while running you can probably run faster. So I stopped talking and started thinking while running.
For eight maybe ten minutes that's fine, but then my thoughts take over and I get a little nuts. Then finally, one day I started running with music.
It was way better. Like SO much better.
The music makes a difference too, which is why I came up with this list of songs that you should put on your running playlist. Roughly 10-12 of them will be about 30 minutes, which is your average 5K.
Add more if you're still working on the speed, chop a few off the list if you're a speed demon.
