The pace variations could be interesting with say....

Radestksy March (Strauss)

'Post Horn Gallop'

William Tell Overture

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHFf7NIwOHQ (it just had to be this version to illustrate it.......)

'Sabre Dance'  (let alone the fantastic guitar version by DaveEdmunds)

Good to see that i am not the only one who runs to clasical music.

yesterday i went for an evening jog and it was near a countryside green and vegetation and i was listening to the sping theme from vivaldi. It was quite nice, as you can get a good feel of the music and the greenery around...................and then you realise how it was composed.............that piece is really like the spring in the countriside................

Also, me being spanish i also use folkloric musis, like the Gipsy Kings, and similar....................ole!

I also like the "operture piece" of Carmen, is very uplifting. I use that one when i start feeling heavy legs need that extra energy.

The other day it was quite funny. I was litening to a waltz and i was sliding a bit from side to side, like walzting down the street............quite funny.

Other times i can't help moving my hands at the rythm of the music, as if directing a orchestra.........................peope looking may think i'm quite weird out there..........................

Really glad you posted this, as I thought I was the only one! I don't listen to music while running outside, because I want to be alert for what's around me, but yes, I often have (classical, or e.g. Loreena McKennitt) music in my head. And I like classical music to listen to if I'm on the treadmill.

Could we do some play lists of fast and uplifting music? I've already bought the "20 thunderous classics" CD. I was wondering if some Spanish guitar music might be appropriately fast-paced for 180 cadence?
