For many of us, tunes have become as essential to our running or training routine as a quality pair of shoes. Music can be a powerful motivator that helps provide that extra dose of inspiration when energy dips or doubts creep in.
While science is actually discovering that there are some benefits of listening to music while training, there is a flip side: listening to your peppy playlist via the traditional dual ear bud system can compromise your safety and well being by removing you from your physical environment.
It’s no secret that music has an uncanny ability to motivate us. But blasting the Beastie Boys can leave you in isolation, removing you from the sounds that running produces (i.e. breathing and footstrike) which are essential cues offering feedback on your effort. Moreover, listening to music while running or biking can removes you from the physical environment surrounding you.
You may not hear a car or person behind you. You may not hear thunder in the distance. And in races, it makes you oblivious of other competitors and you can’t hear the directions being given by officials.
So what’s an athlete to do? You could always go the way of the unplugged purists who prefer the solitude of the road minus the music. But for us, and millions like us, whether it’s a steep hill or a wicked headwind, there are moments in your run or training session that you’ll need to dig deep, and often we rely upon music to summon that extra energy boost.
