Songs for Running


The Olympics (and today’s long-awaited first gold medals for Great Britain) have reminded me of my own sporting commitment, which I hasten to add is on a much smaller scale. My charity half-marathon is now only two months away and I haven’t been training as much as I should have been over the last few weeks. In fact, I haven’t been training at all. That’s because the last thing I want to do, after staying up past midnight reading a good book, is to get up at 6am the next morning to go running…

Nevertheless, laziness is no longer an option. This morning I managed to cover 9km, which is a good start. To celebrate this (hopefully) renewed focus, I thought it was time to do what I threatened some months ago, and post my running playlist as a bit of fun. You will note there is a strong inclination towards the kind of music which is fondly known in England as ‘cheese’. I’ve never claimed to be on-trend.

I’d love to know the tracks that get other people pounding the pavements!
