Music is a key element in my entire being. It helps me concentrate while working, shutting myself down from my environment when I need to focus on something, helps me when times are hard, and helps me to celebrate.
In that sense, it’s indispensible during training (running), it really frustrates me if I can’t find my headphones (like this morning), don’t have it at the right volume (either too loud or too low) or select the wrong tracks. The kind of music I play really depends on the kind of training: up tempo,aggressive music when doing high intensity (interval) exercises, more easy going for longer runs. I notice I’m running at higher pace on aggressive, fast music. Wonder stuff in any sense!
