TRAILMIX:STEP TO THE BEAT OF YOUR OWN MUSIC!
So many runners who listen to music lean heavily on the beat to get them moving. For me, when I'm racing a 5K or doing a speed workout, I specifically listen to songs that have a faster BPM (beat per minute) to help keep me motivated. This past summer I posted a review of TrailMix, an app that let's you play songs from your own library at the BPM of your choice. Though I thought it was a bit strange to listen to some of my slower songs at a higher speed, I loved the fact that if I felt like I needed a little boost during my run, I could get it through my music by using TrailMix without having to stop and think about it. It took a while to get used to, but eventually I started using it on a regular basis to mix things up. With their latest update, TrailMix added the Magic Shuffle, a feature that chooses songs from your library that have a BPM similar to the pace you are running so the song itself doesn't have to pick up or slow down to match your speed. I have tried the new version a few times and I have to say it's so freakin' cool. I love the fact that as I'm cruising along my music is matching my pace AND I'm hearing it all at random which is a new concept for me that I'm starting to really dig. Oh, and when I'm pushing myself on the track or in a race, I have to say, it's really nice to have something to think about other than how much pain I'm in! Want to try it?
