Pick up the Pace: Tempo Run Playlist

If you’re leaving your heart out on the track (or road, or even treadmill), you’ll need a playlist that will help you kick up the pace! With high beats per minute (BPM) and upbeat hit music, this Tempo Run Playlist will help you train better. We asked three Vega Bloggers to share their favorite fast pace mixes with you in one playlist to rule all Tempo Runs.

*Consult your health care provider before starting any exercise regimen.

Note: Rocking this loud in your office to get pumped up before your afternoon run? Know that you might hear a couple of swear words in this playlist. These songs were chosen by our Mix-ologists as what gets them ready to rock their runs—expletives and all. These songs do not reflect the views or values of Vega.
If you don’t know, now you know.
