Subject: Playlists for the Treadmill?
I'm currently training for my first spring triathlon at the end of May. Going into this, and throughout training, running has consistently been the toughest portion for me. I get on the treadmill at the gym and after five minutes I'm bored. When I run outside, it's better since I have a few set routes that I take and it's not as boring staring at other people working out. That said, one of the things that has seemed to help me on the treadmill, has been making a playlist in advance and running until I finish it. Lately though, I've gotten sick of my playlist and haven't had much luck switching it up, so any suggestions? I've tried iTunes radio and Pandora, but seems like I end up skipping half the songs. Would love to hear what you all have on your playlists/ what works for you? Thanks in advance!

I mix up playlists every other month or so, but the app I like is Run, Zombies! It goes through a fun script and plays your playlist. The stories keep me interested and takes my mind off the run for a bit.

Also try podcasts. You can get so many of them free on iTunes and there is something on just about every topic out there.

Or audiobooks.

Embrace the treadmill-- it's great for training when you can't run outdoors.

Anything fast lout and aggressive. Slipknot, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Ozzy, Pantera... and the list goes on.

Heavy metal was created to get me through tough runs lol!

I love my playlist for running outdoors or treadmill, I have a very unusual mix if you like to have it I'll email it to you, I never get tired of it, maybe it will suit your ears, let me know.

I use spotify through my Iphone. They have tons of pre made playlists for running, cycling, and other sports or you can download your own songs and make it a playlist that you can only play on shuffle mode. I love it

When we do or don’t use the treadmill is not so much the issue as to how we use it. When is it appropriate to use a treadmill for your workouts?
