I admire people who run without music. First of all, I cannot wrap my head around how they do it. I need music to keep me on pace, keep me motivated, and keep me moving! I’ve tried running without music, but my thoughts immediately go to the tightness in my calves, my bad ankle acting up, or the burning in my legs. This is extremely distracting. However, with music, I can focus on the lyrics and the rhythm in order to keep me distracted.
Just to clarify, like most runners, I’m not jogging along to country roads, I need fast, upbeat, and quick tempo music to keep me running along.
