To listen or not to listen

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I have a lot of trouble running outdoors with headphone, but when I’m at the gym, I’ve got no issue.

Weird right? I guess I feel like when I’m running outdoors I need to be aware of my surroundings and aware of other runners, cars, dogs, you name in! In fact, just the other day I went for a run and had a collision with a man carrying a hot coffee, which unfortunately landed all over me!

Anyway, back to the point. I was at the gym this evening listening to some of my favourite tunes, so I thought I might share some of the songs that have got me going lately. I will warn you though, there are a few slightly embarrassing tracks on there, so this is not a totally accurate reflection of my musical tastes!


I don’t know if it’s my long-time love of Kasabian (see my About page and it will all make sense) but their latest track ‘eez-eh’ is just the perfect beat for the treadmill. Also, if you’re looking to really step up the pace and raise the heart rate, I really recommend either Pendulum’s ‘Witchcraft’ or the Dropkick Murphy’s ‘I’m shipping off to Boston’. The latter is perfect because for some reason when I listen to it, I feel like someone is chasing me!!
