Music to keep us movin'
"When carefully selected according to scientific principles, music can enhance endurance by 15% and improve the ‘feeling states’ of exercisers, helping them to derive much greater pleasure from the task..." -Science Daily, October 2, 2008
My friend Aline and I have decided to train for a 5K, and we could use a little help! We're putting together a collection of music-to-move-to for our jogging sessions, and we're wondering what YOUR favorites are? If you run, exercise, or even hold solo dance parties in the privacy of your living room, would you mind sharing some of the songs that really get you grooving? We will be strategically organizing your ideas into sections for warm-up, crazy running, and warm down, so songs of varying tempos are appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
