Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #010 -- Running with Music


November 7, 2008

Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !

More than a month has passed since the last Best Running Tips Newsletter. In the last edition I was full of anticipation for the Australian Football Grand Final.

Happy to tell you now that my favourites, the Hawthorn Hawks, won the game and can call themselves national champions for the next year! It was a great game on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon with an incredible outcome.

On to the newsletter now. I have got some information about running with music and a good running training question about what to do: running faster or further? So please read on and pick up some running tips...

=============================================
NEW ON THE SITE :

Most Common Types of Foot Pain - Page on some types of foot pain. In addition to a number of pages on running apparel you will see a few more pages added on running injuries like hamstring injuries, heel pain etc.

MUSIC IMPROVES PERFORMANCE :

Ever felt like that one great tune made you get through a tiring running training session? Well, it probably did!

Dr. Costas Karageorghis of the English Brunel University has developed a formula to estimate how much a certain tune will help you improve your performance.

Dr. Karageorghis has been studying the link between movement and music for the past twenty years. Factors he reckons are important are:

  • Rhytm

  • Tempo

  • Musicality

  • Cultural background


  • The best music for moderate to intensive exercise is music with 120 to 140 beats per minute.

    This may be true for general exercise, for runners it is usually best to run with music that matches to your steps. So depending on whether you go for a long slower run or you do interval running, the type of music that you'd play would be different, which makes sense as well.

    =============================================
    RUNNING QUESTION :
    Rhiannon posed an interesting question about what to do: running faster or further:

    Running Faster or Further

    Have you got a running training question as well?
    Then go to the Running Training Helpline and get your answer!

    =============================================

    I hope you have enjoyed this update and hope to see you back at Best-Running-Tips.com

    I am now going to start planning next year's races including my running training program for the next year. You might be doing the same right about now.

    The down-season is a great moment to re-group, consider your goals and establish what you need to do to reach them.

    Speak to you soon. In the meanwhile, visit my site often and happy running!
