Like listening to music while you run?
Multiple playlists are a good idea! On recovery runs, when runners are often tempted to run too fast, make sure your playlist includes slower tempo music and relaxing songs. Listening to songs that pump you up can lead you to running faster on your slower paced runs than you should.
Not sure what pace to run on your recovery runs? Check out McMillans Running Calculator, enter a recent race pace and a goal pace for your goal distance and calculate. http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/
A good measure of the pace of your recovery runs is that they should feel VERY easy, almost painfully easy. Runners often fall into the trap of only running in their COMFORT ZONE. Get out of it. The only runs that should be completely in your comfort zone are easy runs.
Do you have different playlists for your runs? Do you prefer to run with or with out music?
