    Running for seven weeks now. I have been advised to run with a metronome on 180 bpm. It works for me but gets a bit boring.
    Now I'm looking for rocksongs with a beat of 180 bpm.
    If you have a title and artist of such rocksongs please advise me.

    Tried this today, at the start my headphone wouldn't work with Spotify and at the end had only time for one song. Will try it again tomorrow and start Spotify before leaving.

    The list of music is getting longer:). It must look verry strange to see someone run barefooted or minimalistic while playing the airguitar :woot:.

    I run a metronome app and music at the same time. Way to much effort trying to figure out what all songs are at 180 ish and ones that I'd like for running. As I recall from my run today it seemed that Metallica's The 4 Horsemen was pretty close but I didn't actually measure it. At first it was odd to listen to metronome and music that were out of synch but I've gotten used to it over time.

    I use 'Audacity', a freeware music editor to change the tempo on dance music mixes - specifically lots of acid techno.

    You just need to figure out the original bpm of the music by using a metronome and then input that into the 'Change Tempo' thing under the 'Effect' tab and then input what bpm you want to change it to. Don't use the 'Change Speed' option as that also changes the pitch. 'Change Tempo' only speeds the music up but leaves the pitch as it was.

    So you can have any music you want at any bpm you want.

    My other option is to listen to podcasts on my phone with a metronome app running at same time.

    There's also 'Podrunner' which has a vast array of mixes at many tempos... http://www.podrunner.com/fixed-tempo.html

    I missed this post earlier. That is intriguing. Especially since I have audacity and never new that lol. You mention "dance music mixes" in particular though, does it need a song with a more defined beat to work or something like that?

    A lot of the music I listen to varies in beat though, more of a complex rhythm that changes up a few times, I assume this would still pose a problem?

    Hi Tristan, if you had a track that was say 150 and then 140 and then back to 150 you could select each section in audacity and change each section separately to 180. It will only change tempo on the part you select so you don't need to do the whole track.

    As long as you can figure out the tempo then you can make it work. I use a metronome on my phone while the musics playing to fathom that part and then just input the figures into the change tempo app.

    One thing to keep in mind is the math - that 180 Bpm tempo can get cut in half to 90Bpm and the timing of your feet would stay the same (you just step or lift with one foot on the beats instead of both).

    It gets a bit more complicated when dealing with anything using a 6 count (6/8 time for the musicians paying attention) - "Lights" by Journey or "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals for example. For that you could use something with a 60Bpm tempo, since the tempo beats are technically on the 1 and the 4, and still keep the timing of your feet consistent of 180 footfalls per minute, as you're just counting your steps as sets of 3's instead of 2's.

    Just think "RIGHT - left - right - LEFT - right - left" (ONE - 2 - 3 - ONE - 2 - 3), just like a waltz (for those that know how to do that...)
