Anyone listen to music while running/jogging? If so what music, need to find a few songs that are good to listen to and yet are long.

Try 'NSync, The Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block...

or try running without music so you can avoid the cars and stuff.

Cars and semi's going at 50,60 or 70 mph is constant moto... or something to the effect.

I'm lucky enough to live in the country...

Unless you're on a track, trail, or treadmill it isn't safe. If I run under those circumstances I may listen to some music. My ipod is usually full of 60s rocks, 80s hairbands and pop, and modern country. My pace is set by the garmin, not the music, so it doesn't matter too much.

In all honesty, don't allow yourself to depend too much on the music to set your pace for you. You won't have that ability on the PFT, so run at least some without it now.

If im not running with someone I start to lose intrest in it and just want to stop. Notice this a lot. Ran with my broinlaw other night, hes in the Army. I kept up with him, and it was a competition and I didnt lose intrest. When im running with other Poolees I dont. But when im by my self I just dont want to run. Why I need music.

Well hardly anyone answered this question normal...I dunno I am one of those people who likes every kind of music. Even country:scared: . So ya I listen to rap to hardcore to country to whatever. My last Cd's I got were Say Anything: is a real boy, Brand New's new cd, and Eminem: the re-up. Our RSS' favorite song as a group though is the Korn/Dem Franchize Boys - Coming Undone Wit It..

I didn't answer with a list of songs because I'm starting to 'get' what echo four bravo was saying... we wont have Ipods and walkmans in boot, so why start now. (IMO)

I listen to alot of chris ledoux and merle haggard and older country, modern country tends to **** me off. Other than that its all some random songs most people never of like mad sin, horrorpops, chop tops, carl perkins, nekromantix, the sea legs, time again, the unseen

If you must run to music then let the music you like be your choice. Try to make the beat one you can pace yourself to. A fast beat will make you want to run faster and wear you out quicker, too slow a beat will not give you the workout you want.

Personally I ran to no music so that I could listen to the sounds around me (and my raggedy breathing, ha ha ) and I used the time alone to concentrate on having a good, fun run. In Hawaii we used to run up through the mountains and I just enjoyed the scenery and listened to the birds...

so? whatever makes running right now more enjoyable so you're motivated to do it. You're training for boot camp but you don't have to pretend its boot camp and deprive yourself.

I don't run without my iPod. I get bored.

Exactly! I know DEP-ing is getting prepared for boot camp, it's actually helped me improve my IST greatly. But I hate when people say don't do this because you won't be able to at boot camp. Boot camp is going to shock us no matter how much we prepare. So get prepared physically and mentally, but don't take things so seriously, you ain't going to be sitting at boot camp thinking "Well I'm really glad I didn't listen to my IPOD while running, it prepared me so much more".

Oh yeah, and that whole car issue.

I didn't tell anyone to do anything, just stated why I didn't reply with songs.

I've waited a long time on getting approval to ship to boot camp... I'm going to do what I need/think I need to do to make sure it wasn't a waste.
