To or fro...
Bear with me...gotta ask some questions on this one. Trust me...it's worth it.
So why do you run?
Let me guess...when you really break it out...and you really think about it...you are either running towards something or away.
You are running to find motivation or you are running to escape.
It's that simple...
Second question...what music do you listen to while you are running?
So if you run for the reasons I laid out earlier (and I think you do)...you need the right music to match the run...right? So I decided to give you the ultimate playlist perfect for running for motivation or for the ultimate escape. I didn't put these in order because reasons for running and music are individual things. I can't make that choice for you. For me...I like motivational at the beginning of the run...escape in the middle...and then end with motivational again. Think about it this way...sprint...pacing...sprint. The order is your choice...the choice of music...I would take a hard look at my list. I think you will like it...
And now...musical intervals...
