I've seen your comments about the music you all listen too when running, do you have specific apps or just downloading music to your phones? I have albums downloaded to my phone but am getting bored with them now x

I download tracks to my IPod Nano shuffle which has been with me on my whole running life ๐Ÿ™‚

Great, thank you x

My phone has all my favourite music on it. When I run with music (not every run by any means) it is just set to shuffle and off I go.

Thanks, that's what I've been doing too but need new song now I think x

for me, BBC iplayer radio - I let someone else pick the choons or I'd be there forever putting together a playlist! Or I listen to a comedy show for a distracting laugh (though you look a bit mad running and giggling)

Hiya does this use up alot of data

A three hour (not that you need all that!) music radio show seems to be about 140MB, talk radio/comedy is smaller - can you download over wifi in advance? Not sure how that changes if you stream it. I could check tomorrow as I've promised myself a run!

can confirm streaming doesn't seem to be much different, streamed 35 minutes of an iplayer show today (I didn't run yesterday after all!) and I think I used about 30MB at most (phone estimates are a bit rough). Not bad.

I like this idea , will definitely give this a go, thank you x

I use Apple Music. Iโ€™ve now created my own playlist which is well over an hour. There are also loads of running albums and playlists on there to suit all sorts of tastes. I particularly like the โ€˜running to pop musicโ€™ one

I'm not a country music fan but it's good to find what works for other people ๐Ÿ˜

I have Spotify on iPhone and there are plenty of running albums to download. Iโ€™m using a ministry of sound one at the moment

You can get the app free, for a length of time (I forgot) but the music is interrupted with adverts which isnโ€™t good, so I just subscribed to the next level. I love the app. Iโ€™ve also learnt that trance (I think it called, I call it rave music ๐Ÿ˜Š) has a really good beat for running! But what ever you enjoy and gets you going is best for you. Enjoy !

I use the Ultimate Marathon Mix on Apple Music Pop, on shuffle.

I downloaded an Audiofuel marathon thing yesterday - Run Free, The Second Hour. Electro pop, designed to run to. Not my kind of music but it worked. It was a bit hypnotic, no lyrics to bother about, and I did get lost in it. The run flew by ๐Ÿ™‚

I have Spotify! I make wee playlists! Elbow my favourite at moment! Never run without my music!๐Ÿ˜€

I use Amazon Music, Iโ€™m slowly adding tracks to my โ€˜runningโ€™ playlist as I go. Itโ€™s funny as itโ€™s not the sort of music Iโ€™d listen to at home!
