I have previously written about the types of music i listen to and how some of those tracks relate to running pace. I find the lyrics are just as motivational as the backing music a lot of the time. It’s great when you’ve got a kilometer to go and that great track comes on that can give you a boost to finish of that run. I have gone through some of the tracks i listen to and pulled out the lyrics that stick in my head when running. I hope you like what i post here and let me know what your motivational running tracks are.
