Do you like techno of any kind? I find that a lot of Paul Oakenfold’s remixes have great rhythms for running. Also, he uses popular songs so it’s not just some crazy techno beat.

I also like a lot of Reggaeton/Latin stuff because of the beat.

I usually get moving to Black Eyed Peas and Fergie (specifically Boom boom pow, Here I Come and I gotta Feeling); Pussycat Dolls’ Wait a Minute; other songs I like “Great DJ” I forget by who, Stronger by Christina Aguilera… hmm there are a lot more but I can’t think now

I’ve been meaning to check out PodRunner.com for a while, I’m pretty sick of my music too.  The podcasts all look like they’re free, too.

I’ve been working on this myself.  My playlist is sort of all over the place:

That’s Not My Name – The Ting Tings
Love You Madly – Cake
I Know You Want Me – Pitbull
Boro Boro – Arash
Paper Planes – MIA
Hey World – Michael Franti & Spearhead
Poker Face – Lady Gaga
La Gallina – Ozomatli
Chelsea Dagger – The Fratellis
Clocks – Coldplay

Hope a few of those help

I’d recommend The Hood Internet, they make a bunch of mashups if you’re into stuff like that. Their mixtapes Vols. 1, 2, and 3 are my favorite. And the best part is you can download everything for free from their site: http://www.thehoodinternet.com/

Asn an FYI, I head that when you listen to loud music, it actually helps with your workout, b/c it blocks out the sound of yourself breathing heavy, I’ve read that if you can hear youself breathing heavy, you actually get more tired, vs. if you have loud music it blocks that out. Don’t know if this is true, but loud music seems to work for me πŸ™‚

My workout music is kind of random, but I def have my songs that I LOVE to run to, they just pump me up:

-Red Hot Chili Peppers: pretty much anything is SO awesome to workout to, and my fav one to run to is “Suck my Kiss” Or “Give it Away Now” they are nice and loud πŸ™‚

– The Offspring: again pretty much anything by them

– Michael Jackson & Jackson 5: again all songs are great, except the slow ones LOL

– Here are a few specific songs that really get me going more then others when they come pop up on my Ipod : Jessica Simpson ” Public Affair,” Avril Levine “Girlfriend,” The Commodores “Brickhouse,” and prob my all time favorite song to run to is The Bee Gees “Night Fever,” whenever it comes on, I just push myself, I think its because the song builds up so well πŸ™‚

PodRunner.com looks cool – I like Fitness cause you can even download actual workout routines to your ipod which is nice if you want to mix it up.

When I listen to music and don’t just watch tv, I love listening to latin music – either spanish rap or like.. salsa music (gypsy kings are pretty good). It sounds totally bizarre, but the beats stay pretty constant and I can keep going a lot longer. And the fact that I speak a little spanish means I focus more on trying to figure out the words than on how tired I’m getting. I could just be weird πŸ™‚

There are some great podcasts that you can download off of iTunes, a few were mentioned above.  Some of my favorite workout songs are “Here It Goes Again” by OK Go, “Animal” by Miike Snow, “Umbrella” by Rihanna and “I’ve Got a Feelin” by the Black Eyed Peas (if you’re not sick of that song already).
