If you gave me one of my favorite decades of music, no doubt the 90 would have a place of honor on the list. In addition to giving birth great successes like the Vogue from Madonna or the Basket Case of Green Day, coincided with my adolescence (and with that of many of you, born in the 80s; eye, we are still millennials), with the first parties and those first afternoons of light discos where we began to go out with friends.
Those songs are the ones that most often accompany me in my career training because they fill me with energy to add kilometers. Here you have them, compiled in a playlist two hours long, so that you fill your training and careers of rock, pop and, of course, dance.
We know that listening to music while we are training can help us run more kilometers and that, in addition, we can also give it other uses such as helping us maintain an objective race pace (the famous 180 steps per minute). But for many, as is my case, the most important function of music is motivation.
That song that appears at the right time, when you’re cursing because you think you can’t take another step (yes, that can happen in training and even in the race) and that fills you with energy in order to move forward and cross the finish line or finish your training full of pride.
Or that song that brings you such good memories of previous races or workouts that makes your strides look lighter. Those songs, for me, are in this playlist.
If you are a 90’s music lover, what other songs would you include in this playlist for running?
