Running and ITM
I ran my first 5K charity race yesterday. I created a playlist on my iPod that contained a variety of up-tempo music for the run, including some ITM. I had some doubts as to whether or not trad would keep me pumped up like rock, but I found that jigs are particularly good for running. The tempo coincided with footfalls pretty well.
So, in restrospect, the music that worked best for running for me ended up being AC/DC and jig sets.
Now I know what to concentrate on for playlists as the wife and I prepare for the half marathon coming up in January.
