Stay focused: Marathon Playlist

on July 07, 2016
Stay focused and motivation will follow. We asked our 776BC marathoners-in-training what tunes help keep their head in the zone when their feet are pounding the pavement. Fiona I don't usually listen to music when I'm outside running (weird, I know) but these songs help keep me focused when a treadmill is on the training programme. Essentially, all I need is music I can sing to. 1. Punching in a Dream - The Naked and Famous 2. Read my Mind - The Killers 3. Ocean Drive - Duke Dumont (Alison Wonderland strings edit) 4. Gifted - N.A.S.A ft Kayne, Santogold & Lykke Li (Aston Shuffle mix) 5. Golden Years - David Bowie 6. The Fear - Ben Howard 7. Innerbloom - RUFUS (actually, anything RUFUS) 8. Clearest Blue - Chvrches 9. King Kunta - Kendrick Lamar 10. Formation - Beyonce Lucy I need to listen to music whenever and wherever I'm running in order to stay focused. For me, it's the music that I love which helps me stay on my goal pace; pub classics, 80's rock and anything with a really strong beat but no dance/techno in sight. 1. First - Cold War Kids 2. Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Leppard 3. Just a Girl - No Dobut 4. Dancing on My Own - Robyn 5. She's so High - Tao Bachman 6. Runaway - The Killers 7. I'll Be There for You - Bon Jovi 8. Talk Dirty to Me - Poison 9. Steal my Sunshine - Len 10. Starman - David Bowie 11. Used to Love You - Gwen Stefani If you're training for a marathon and have some of your own tips to share, we'd love for you to share them with us!
