Just started a running regimen; so far everything’s going well My main issue is that it’s pretty damn boring, especially on a treadmill - I need something to distract and entertain me.
I JFGI resulting in a million suggestions of Lady Gaga and instantly forgettable hip-hop garbage, so Google no help there. What I want is something with a good pace that isn’t shit, something that can drive you to ignore the pain. Something that runs with you, if you like. Something you can dive straight into.
By way of example, stuff like this I find is perfect for running;
Pure Morning by Placebo, great loud, thumping and bounding track. Easily my favourite track to put on when running.
The Trooper or Run to the Hills by Iron Maiden. I prefer The Trooper, just because I think it gets going a bit quicker, and every second of mental fortitude is valuable.
Soundtracks are good too.
Tanker Incident from MGS2 is pretty repetitive, but still engaging enough to want to make you press on.
And since I’m obsessed, the ME2 soundtrack is pretty damn good - particularly with its epic Suicide Mission and The End Run…oh, and The Normandy Attacked…Reborn.
My tiny little mind needs lots of distraction when running to avoid thinking ‘feck this, let’s walk for a bit’ - any recommendations?
