Congratulations, you’ve found the playlist for your next run!
Music junkies and pro athletes alike know that the right music can make or break a workout. Studies show that listening to sick tunes can improve endurance by a whole 15% and distract from the pain. You’re still getting those gains, but you’ll be so busy singing along to Rihanna that you won’t notice your muscles aching. A recent Stanford study found that music can promote concentration – slower music will lead to slower movements while faster music will inspire faster movements. Faster movements = more calories burned.
It doesn’t matter what skill level you’re running at, a good playlist can help you reach an even higher level of awesome. Instead of scrolling through your over-used workout playlist, we’ve hand-picked a list of (what we think are) the best songs for running. We guarantee they’ll get you going – and keep you going – through your toughest run. We’ll take you through the songs and, if you’re ready to hit the pavement right now, scroll to the bottom to access the playlist on Spotify!
