It’s nice to listen to music to get us ready for a run or to keep us going during a run so I thought it would be good to share some tunes that we can add to our playlist, maybe songs by artists we wouldn’t normally listen to or simply tunes we’d forgotten about. The main purpose being hopefully we can inspire each other with our music selections and why we’ve chosen them.
Every week, I have chosen songs to listen to on training runs but as it’s the London Marathon this weekend, I heard a song on the radio this morning and thought this would be the perfect song to listen when you’re getting ready, on the train to the start, while you’re milling about before the start or even if you’re not doing the marathon and only going for a training run, you can listen to this too and get the benefit from it.
I choose songs for their lyrics most of the time and usually the lyrics are aimed at helping us to dig in when the going gets tough and we need a boost but this song is perfect for getting us in the right frame of mind to start the run.
A positive frame of mind at the start can make a massive difference to the quality of the run.
This week’s choice is an updated version of the classic Kate Bush song, Cloudbusting by Just Us. If you’re running this weekend, either in the marathon, another race or in training, listen to this song and recite the lyrics to yourself.
“Cause every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen”
Have a great run 🙂
