Sometimes we need more than just self-motivation to hit the road and run. Music plays a significant role, and it does enhance your performance. If you’re tired of listening to the same tracks, here are 20 songs to add to your running playlist and step up your game!
I don’t know about you, but it happens with me — I get hooked with a specific set or playlist when I go for a run. After a while, I need a new one to feel the juices flowing again and some more motivation to keep going. And to me, music does this job perfectly.
It isn’t, however, any random song that keeps me in the zone. If I hit the road with Drake or The Weeknd, I don’t feel it coming!
According to science, listening to music boosts energy and changes our mood; it’s double dopamine hit from both running and listening to music.
We’ve rounded up 20 songs to add to your current running playlist. There are some timeless rock tracks and some good electronic to keep your dopamine flowing. Enjoy!
