where you increase your daily runs until you magically can run 5k (3 miles ish) without dying. The problem is that it wants you to run for 1 minute, then walk for 2 minutes and so on. I wasn't sure how to do the timings so reckon I could do it using a playlist of songs around that length. They would mostly be hardcore or loud shouty stuff, but think it could work quite well.
well - i've finished it now, it's great, eases you in and gives you really manageable goals to work towrads
there are a few free apps that do it so you get a voice prompt when to run and when to walk, so do that
i genuinely highly recommend it
Doing a 5k charity run in late October but that should be pish by then I'm hoping
did half a mile running, by the end I felt like I was going to die. I could barely breathe until about 10 minutes afterwards. I can walk for hours but I have never been able to run, even for a bus. I may try it so I can at least run away if some lunatic is chasing me.
Gamma Ray - Beck
Ramones - Chinese Rock or Sheena is a punk rocker
Blister in the sun - violent femmes
Cheesecake - Dexter Gordon
Those are some I've been listening to anyway, I'm just getting into it
It changes regularly. The fact I have no choice in it means I get annoyed with it all equally and don't feel the need to stop and skip tracks. Plus I channel the anger that some of the songs evoke into my run.
Don't Look At Me (I Don't Like It) by The Lovely Eggs
Is Rollin' by Limp Bizkit.
The theme from the first level of bit.trip runner is great too.
Don't know what the fuck I was thinking when I put Come To Daddy on it, though.
Awesome for weights work
I like listening to really long songs that i love as i forget about the time and after 4 tracks i've run for 40 minutes
or short sharp 2 minute ENERGY PUNCHES

couldn't help it. None of them are more than 50 posts though, so let's make this one go the furtherest. the Ultimate Running Thread. 100 post ultra-thread - unmapped cross-country style.
just googling. I only bookmark my own threads.
Kind of zone out during it and can knock out a mile per track.
Shame on you
(i can't run that long yet)
Interpol - Not Even Jail
YYYs - Zero
Fuck Buttons - Brainfreeze
Tricky - Black Steel
Tv on the Radio - Halfway Home
MIA - Bamboo Banga
Propulsive songs heavy on the drums/synth that don't really have quiet interludes. Also yeah the Field is really good for running.
as distraction from feeling tired/uncomfortable
on the other hand: end up going more slowly cos i can't concentrate on my breathing.
and i find music enjoyable / motivating
for soem reason my phone has no music on it at all, so I ran in silence for the first tiem in a long time. It was rubbish, I would not recommend it. soundtracked only by my ragged wheezing breathing, nothing to really pace me or inspire my stride. No 80's-influenced power-pop anthems to make me feel like I'm in a training montage.
On the other hand, I did get a couple of little Strava cups though, so I must have gone faster than I have for a while - but that was always the plan for today.
In conclusion: Music.
and got 7 strava cups
Unless you want to run in 15/32 time or something.
Reset is a good track, pretty long, quite consistent bass drum to keep you going, feels a bit heroic:
By that token, most of Maybeshewill's I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone will work, all big euphoric piano builds and catchy drum patterns
is quite a good one.
