You have your running sneakers on and you're prepared to run just like the wind. You plug in your iPod, and you also are all set. There's nothing that can compare with running to music. Needless to say the die-hard athlete will argue that music isn't the ideal solution while running. But again, just how many folks are marathon runners?
Some think that there are many advantages to running with music. It can help many people move away from everyday stresses and helps them unwind because they run. Some like music and running since it revitalizes your body and soul. Some exactly like to pass enough time hearing music because they run. Music can make exercise easier and enough time spent running seem less.
Running to music is often a good way to alleviate the stress which has mounted up throughout the day. The sounds of the street (particularly if your home is in the town) are eliminated as you have plugged in a few good tunes. All that's left can be your favorite music and an extended, relaxing run. Some prefer to tune to their favorite radio station. While some, enjoy easy listening, hard rock, opera - it generally does not really matter, so long as you enjoy everything you are hearing.
However, you can find those who think that running to music could be hazardous. You can't hear people running up behind you, and you also might inadvertently come across their running path, or in case a bike is approaching you, and you also have no idea it, you and the rider could possibly be seriously hurt. The end result is there are pros and cons to both sides - no-one can stop you from gaining headphones while running.
