    i think i've got a calf injury.


    Not dead. Yet.

      Add in some Greensky Bluegrass and maybe some Keller Williams and it would be awesome!!!

       

      Thanks for the tip!  I almost added a Keller Williams... LOL.  I don't know him that well to be honest, but I really like a few of his.  Need to explore his music more.  And looking at Greensky Bluegrass now.  They kick ass so far.  w00t!

      How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

        In general I don’t run with music while I’m training for something but if I’m just doing easy base mileage these are the 10 I’m most happy to have come on:

         

        1)   Run To The Hills – Iron Maiden (mostly because the name aptly describes what I am usually doing at the time the song comes on)

        2)   Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster – Geto Boys (do I get more or less street cred because I know about this one from Office Space)

        3)   Chameleon – Maynard Ferguson

        4)   For Whom The Bell Tolls – Metallica

        5)   Check Your Time – Westbound Train

        6)   Keep My Grave Open – Sentenced

        7)   Jump Around – House of Pain (I went to RPI for college but in some ways I will always be a Badger)

        8)   http://www.badgerbadgerbadger.com/ (I’m dating myself with this link, and no, I don't actually have this on my ipod)

        9)   Mr Brownstone – Guns N’ Roses (who doesn’t see the similarity between distance running and heroin)

        10) Breaking The Law – Judas Priest (but only if I’m running next to the train tracks in Chicago)

        Julia1971


          Some new purchases:

           

          I Love It - Icona Pop (This song is awful.  But, "I don't care!  I love it!").

          Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

          I Will Wait - Mumford and Sons

          Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men

          You're too strong not to keep on keepin' on. - The Pips
          Yes, I am! - Gladys Knight


          Revenge of the Nerd

            Any 10 by Ozric Tentacles.  Propulsive-progressive-psychedelic-electronic-world beat.  Here are three to get you started:

             

            Holohedron

             

            Afroclonk

              I also like Presidents of the United States of America - Kick out the Jams and We're not gonna Make it

               

              These are very uptempo and light hearted

                Where the Streets Have No Name - U2

                Not the Only One - Bonnie Raitt

                 

                PS I weave a little bluegrass and country into my playlist too. I always have my playlist set to start with the slower BPM songs loaded at the front end and the tempo picks up all the way to my 2 hr finish...My playlist is geared to half marathons..

                Someone is behind me and gaining, Run Faster!

                                I haven't read the other replies yet, so this may have been mentioned already. Alice Cooper's "Hello, Hooray" is great to run to. It does start slow, but when he says, "I feel so strong, I'm so strong", I swear I can run forever.
