Stay focused: Marathon Playlist

by 776BC Athletes 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 Doubt

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!
