Keep It Interesting

"Variety is the spice of life" when it comes to the songs you listen to while running.

Jog.fm will give you that variety with lots of options.

  • Find music that fits exactly how fast you want to run, based on bpm (beats per minute) or your mile pace (like an 8:00 mile).
  • Choose from preset playlists.
  • Use Maps feature on their website.
  • A jog.fm app in addition to their website. (The app only uses the music you already have on your device.)

Beats Per Minute

I think it's easier to adjust your music according to your mile pace, but some technology works by beats per minute (bpm).

For running, most people want a bpm between 160-180.

You can actually increase your running speed by choosing a faster bpm then adjust your running to it (that's the harder part).

Make my downloaded songs better for running

Tempo Magic is an app that changes the speed of your current music to better fit a jogging workout. Take your favorite songs and make them perfect for running.

Pandora radio

I like to use Pandora radio for many different tasks.

They don't have a specific line-up for jogging songs, but you can search for these genres:

Pop Fitness
Country Fitness
80's Cardio
Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout

Running Music apps

Here are some highly recommended apps for running music:

podrunner
Rock My Run
Pace DJ Lite

Have fun with running songs!
