Running music

So I started couch to 5k a few months ago and I managed to finish it, I ran for the time your meant to and got to 4.5k which I was really proud of. I then had a really bad run, I was really tired and I could barely manage to do a kilometre. Since then I havent even been able to run for longer than about 3km which is so annoying because I know I’ve done better than that before but I’m almost stopping myself because of that bad run.

Anyway, I love to listen to music when I run. Some of my favourite songs to listen to are run boy run by Woodkid and seven nation army. I like songs with a good beat, as they make me want to continue running. Does anyone have any songs with a good beat or songs that are good to run to, I’d love to add some more to my playlist. Thanks xx
Today is a great day for a great day.

    I totally get what you mean @Dandelion!! I started couch to 5k in lockdown and when I say I could not get past week 3! It is a really frustrating situation and can leave you feeling defeated about an activity you were feeling pretty good about before. The thing I keep trying to remind myself of is with more practice I eventually will get past it - I know this is the most basic advice though =)

    I think you should be proud of yourself for getting out there at all - running is hard!!

    I'd recommend La La Land by Demi Lovato (embarrassing I know!).

    I'd love to hear more recommendations from you?

    Congrats on the running !

    Spotify have a few good playlists full of upbeat songs in their workout section, they have a few for running 😄

    Here’s a few from my playlist, these tend to keep me going😂

    A song that motivates me to exercise is Feel It Still by Portugal The Man
    I'm a fruit loop. 🍊➰

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.
