    Hi guys. I am doing c25k running program. Tomorrow I will be on week 6 day 3 and have my 25 minute run. I am looking for some new music to run to to help me get through it. As it is only fair to share, I currently enjoy running to the Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling" and the theme song to Rocky. (yes, I know it is cheesy but it works for me) :)

    Good Luck on the C25K!

    I have so many. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite. I love Rihanna, but could't pick one over another. Jazz Machine which is a latin song that I love, but can't think of the artist. Ironman by Black Sabbath. And, Drop It On Me by Ricky Martin. I love to dance, so my music I dance to inspires me to run faster!:banana:

    My favorite is Right Now by Van Halen. Another good one is I Can go the Distance from the Hercules soundtrack.

    Another vote for both of these songs, and I also like Break my stride covered by Ace of Base, or almost anything by Ace of Base. The Spectromagic theme is always good, too! :dance3:

    I always set up a playlist before I start my c25k each night. Here is what I had on mine for tonight:

    Stronger - Biggest Loser Power Mix
    4 Minutes - Biggest Loser Power Mix
    Bad Romance -Lady Gaga
    Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho - Pirates of the Carribean at World's End. (It actually has very upbeat music, because of course it's pirates fighting. It's actually one of my favorite songs to run to.)
    New Divide - Linkin Park
    King of Pride Rock/Circle of Life (Reprise) - The Lion King Broadway Show. (Also very upbeat.)
    Paranoid - Jonas Brothers. (I'm not sure if many adults like the Jonas Brothers, but I still find this and their other songs very upbeat and easy to run to.)
    Fly with Me - Jonas Brothers
    Jump - Glee Cast
    Hate on Me - Glee Cast
    Telephone - Lady Gaga

    Hope that helps some!

    My absolute favorite go-to song is Tubthumping by Chumba Wumba (the lyrics are..."I get knocked down, but I get up again, ain't nothing gonna keep me down...") You have probably heard the song but might not recognize the whacky title.

    I also like "No one Left to Run With" by the Allman Brothers and, of course, "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen. If you need to pick up your pace, there are lots of Michael Jackson songs that have the right beat. I also use Katy Perry Hot n Cold.

    I love these threads as I always get new ideas.

    A fun topic! I always look forward to "It's My Life" coming up on my ipod. I also like a good dose of U2, "Where the Streets Have No Name" is an oldy but a goodie. For whatever reason, it gives me a little boost. My husband likes "Jump" by Van Halen and "ABC" by the Jackson 5. Have a great run!

    I like "I Gotta Feeling" too! I also like "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas, and just about any dance mix. I have some Lady Gaga and Rhianna dance mixes that are pretty fast and they keep me going. :)

    One of my favorites to run to is the Doors' LA Woman.

    The songs speeds up and slows down so I can do intervals, and at the end gets really fast so I can push myself.
