Running is a form of workout which does a whole lot of good. It keeps your heart rate up, burns calories, and gives you an overall good feeling afterwards.
As with any form of exercise, it helps a great deal to add some music to your routine. It sets the mood, motivates you to get up and move. Listening to music while running spells a world of difference between a tortuous, ligament-tearing workout and an endorphin-filled sprint. It simply brings life to an otherwise dreary running session.
When it comes to choosing music to accompany you while you run, you don’t have to strictly follow anybody else’s playlist. Whatever’s playing in his or her iPod may not necessarily work for you. “To each his own” applies, even in this case. But there are some things you can consider when picking out your running songs.
Choose songs which put you in a positive frame of mind. If listening to the Spice Girls floods you with memories of a broken heart, then dump that.
When it comes to warm ups, choose songs which are not too fast and not too slow. Moderation is the key. The idea here is to prepare yourself for your run, not to wear you out too soon. You have to psyche yourself, so stick to music which sends off positive vibes.
Some runs may involve treading uneven terrain or going uphill. This calls for music with a more upbeat tempo. Inspirational songs may work here, as they can empower you and put you in a frame of mind that you can conquer the world.
Feel free to explore. There’s a whole range of music selections out there. Venture to try something new. If you’ve always been a fan of hip hop music, why not try some reggae for a change. Change is good, and may get your heart really pumping.
In my attempt to stay fit or lose some kilos, I bought this pair of Mizuno Lady Wave Rider 14…in white, silver and pink!
“The new version of the Mizuno Wave Rider is as cushioned and comfortable as ever but it now has Mizuno’s new Gender Specific Engineering which means that they are designed especially for womens running needs. The Other noticeable difference is the inclusion of the NEW AP+ MIDSOLE. This makes the shoe much more cushioned, springy and durable for the runner. This shoe has an incredibly slick transition and ride and now with an improved fit and cushioning.”
That’s how the shoes were described and that’s how they really are. I’m glad that I bough this pair in time for spring and the many marathons that I plan to run.
I’m actually a size 37 but I bought a size 38 and they fit me just fine. No hurting even on the first time I wore them. Also, you would love the Mizuno Pebax Rnew Wave – a new material designed with the environment in mind, the new Wave Material has a lower carbon footprint plus the Airmesh Upper – For lightweight breathability keeping your foot from sweating and over-heating.
