When I run, I like to listen to up beat music to keep me motivated. I think the beat of the song influences my stride as well as the message behind the song. So I have listed 10 of my favorite songs from my iPhone play list that are motivating.
To be honest, I could have included every song from Queen’s Absolute Greatest Album but I limited it to three just to be fair to all other artists! When I hear Another One Bites The Dust, my competitive side comes out and I imagine myself in a race and passing other runners! I often find myself playing mind games when running. I think you have to in order to get over the pain you might be feeling in your lungs or in your legs.
Judging by my list you might think that I’m a bit in the 80’s but I do have a few more modern songs on my list as well!
Top Ten Motivating Songs for Running:
- We Are The Champions by Queen
- Jump by Van Halen
- Another One Bites The Dust by Queen
- Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
- Survivor by Destiny’s Child
- We Will Rock You by Queen
- Some Nights by Fun
- I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
- Staying Alive by the Bee Gees
- Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys
So, there you have my list, now it’s time for you to share a few of yours. What songs inspire you? Let me know your favorites!
