Music

So I've been running/jogging/walking for about two weeks now. I would not call myself a runner just yet. My routine usually goes something like this...I run for a mile, then walk for half a mile, run for another half mile, then walk for half a mile, then run for another half mile or mile. So I'm not consistent, but I'm not at breathless as I was two weeks ago.

I've run before. But before I did it to lose weight, now I'm doing it to get into shape (yeah lose some poundage) but I also like it this time. I feel great after a run and I'm actually truly enjoying it.

Now here's the problem....music. I run with my iPod. But my iPod is a true mess. I've got so many different genres in this mini storage unit that placing it on scramble just ends up having too much variety. I'll go from listening to something face paced to classical music. So this breaks my pace.

Now here's what I need from you....helpful suggestions for running music. I've bought one of those card things for music. Help me create a play list for running. Suggest some good running/jogging/music.

  • Card thingies?

    I usually find I exercise better when listening to angry music. For whatever reason, I always hit it hard when listening to Disturbed. (Not exactly my music of genre of choice.)

  • I tend to go very poppy for working out. Yeah, it's all Britney and PCD for me...

  • I like stuff that's a bit hard and a lot fast. Not my cup of tea, but have you heard of Billy Tallent? Stuff like that.

  • I don't jog anymore (gave my knees trouble), but I do walk. I used to listen to music while walking--first on cassette, later on CD. But I got so tired of fumbling with my Walkman and Discman, that I started walking without either. And to my pleasant surprise, I found that I didn't need them--that music played in my memory! Everytime I walk, song-after-song goes through my head, naturally!
