Runnin’ to the Jammiez

Pick your jammiez and start running.

Finally, after about a 2 year break, I started running regularly again. I bought some shoes, read GL’s post, and just did it. It feels great.

GL made a lot of excellent points(because he is THE MAN), but I disagreed with his opinion on music while running. His rule number 3 states “Do not run with music. It is unsafe if near traffic, also: unplugging is important!” While I do agree that it is unsafe near traffic, if you are in a controlled running environment I think that listening to an album while running can let you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and really let you hone in on the music and your run. GL goes on to state that if you have to listen to music, choose something that will give you “chills.” Thus finding the perfect running music has been my goal for the last month and a half. Below have been my experiences with various sub genres and bands.


Sick of it All – Scratch the Surface

Assessment

The run started out nicely. Then all hell broke loose. During the first chorus of “No Cure” I commenced to Pickin’ Up Change for the first mile. This soon became a full body workout as I wove in and out of the Classic NY Style, The Gorilla and occasionally  the Creepy-Crawly. In the end I somehow ended my 3 mile run with a Glorious Pile On and an aching body. Afterwards I created a bond of brotherhood with the runners around me. From that day on I had their backs and they had mine. We were a force to be reckoned with.

Verdict

I’ll have to save this one for the days when stress relief is needed most. My back is still sore.


Noble Beast – Noble Beast

Assessment

A mighty dragon of steel erupted from the sky and bore me onwards into victory, raining hellfire as we passed over the battlefield, leaving everything in ruin. With my mighty sword of steel I clove our enemies’ helms in twain. Nothing remained as we laid waste. I crushed my enemies. I saw them driven before me. I heard the lamentations of their women.

Verdict

TRUE GLORY! FEEL THE POWER!


Sleep – Dopesmoker

Assessment

Well, I started to run but somehow I kept slowing down. Not in a natural progression either. I mean I seriously slowed down. My heart rate dropped to bradycardia levels. I’m not even sure if I was moving the whole time, I just remember the colors I saw. And they were moving, so maybe I was moving too… And I saw smoke. Smoke leading off into a distant land. I followed the smoke, so maybe I was moving. Then again, maybe the world was moving. It was hazy. I couldn’t tell if my physical exertion was clouding my vision or if it was something else. When the album was over I noticed I was only a few steps away from my starting point.

Verdict

I didn’t accomplish much, just listened to Dopesmoker for the thousandth time.


Immortal – Pure Holocaust

Assessment 

After a quick warm up my body was feeling limber, loose and ready to go. I started the album and took off. After my first 1/2 mile my legs started to stiffen up a bit. It seemed normal; I was still getting back into the running process so I didn’t pay any mind to it and pressed forward. Then I noticed the temperature starting to drop, getting colder every second. Another 1/2 passed and my teeth were chattering, my arms were barely moving, and the wind had picked up extensively. I pressed through another 1/4 before ice drops started falling into my face and blurring my vision. I had no clue what was happening but I had to keep going, it was far too cold to stop moving. I felt the tingle of numbness in my feet. After the 1 mile mark my feet felt dead and my legs stopped moving. As I looked down I saw they were covered in ice. I was being Frozen By Icewinds. I had to stop the album and allow my legs to thaw before I could carry on.

Verdict

A little chilly, but it gave me the extra push to keep going and not stop.


Napalm Death – Scum

Assessment

Have you ever done a High Intensity Interval for 33 minutes? Have you ever run a mile in 3.5 minutes? Have you ever bitten the head off of a sewer rat for energy during a run? Have you ever started a run as one person and finished as someone completely different? Have you ever gotten into a sociopolitical discussion with your surroundings during a run?  Have you ever licked the bottom of your running shoes? Have you ever attacked unsuspecting fellow runners? Have your kneecaps ever exploded after a run? Have you ever seen a grown man naked?

Verdict

I suffered, but why?


Mortiis – Født Til å Herske

Assessment

As I trudged through the dungeon I heard a faint noise ahead. A roll of my d20 for perception allowed me to smell the bugbear 30 yards away. My keen elf senses aided me to loose one arrow in its direction and my +10 arrow struck true. As the path winds into the darkness the slight incline told me I had reached the heart of the mountain and would soon find the Palace of Drakmir, my final destination. The light emanating from ahead grew stronger, and I entered a great cavern, the Palace in its center. After years of searching it was within my grasp, the Jewel of the Palace of Drakmir.

Verdict

Wait, I was running?


Manowar – Into Glory Ride

Assessment

Many posers were slain that day.

Verdict

Many posers were slain that day.


Power Metal and Black Metal works best for me when it comes to everyday running, despite my love for Doom and Dungeon Synth. When I need the extra mile though I am going straight for my Hardcore and Grindcore collection.

What are some of the artists and albums you like to run to?

  • Lacertilian

    Before that disc in my back bulged back out on Wednesday I was conducting a similar trial and found Black Thrash to be the optimal cardio tunes for me. Here’s some Aussie stuff from last year that works well.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeNQuw0T09A

    • Stanley

      Seconded!

    • This things riiiiips

    • Joaquin Stick

      I already have pacing issues when I run, I don’t know how to not sprint. This would exacerbate that problem like no other.

      • Dagon

        Just do HIIT.

        Fuck jogging.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Can’t do that shit either, gives me weird chest pains that I try to avoid. I just lift and lift quickly, that’s almost like cardio.

  • Dubs

    Not to be contradictory, but I’m with GL. I don’t like running with headphones in.

    • Running is about the only time I can pretend I’m in a great fantasy battle, so yeah I definitely need the headphones in

    • I’m pretty sure I’d rather die than have to run in silence.

      • Dubs

        Obviously you haven’t learned to paint with all the colors of the wind.

        • I can paint with my vomit

          • Dubs

            Cutting down on the personal pizzas will help with that.

          • But at what cost, Dubs? AT WHAT COST!?

          • BACH!!!!!!!!

            The horrifying aftermath of a steady Skittles, Pop Rocks and Mountain Dew Code Red diet.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Contradiction is just fine and welcome! I know its not for everyone.

  • Pentagram Sam

    Not trying to drop the puns this early, but classic Running Wild works well with AHAHAHHA running wildly.

    ….. ok off to work.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      *cymbal*

    • BACH!!!!!!!!

      Don’t forget to tip the bartender, folks.

  • Stockhausen

    Mastodon and Meshuggah are great running tunes when it comes to metal. I’ve been known to devour other runners whole when “I Am Colossus” comes on.

    • Dagon

      RUN

      WITH

      DEAAAATH

  • If the music isn’t making you raise your fist up to your brotherman and/or speed metal, it’s wrong

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvbFXo-M8ec

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Exactly

  • Joaquin Stick

    I bet you got super sweaty after listening to Immortal. Did you take Abbath?

    • tigeraid

      oooooooh shit.

    • Eliza

      You deserve to be PUNished.

      I tried.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      This just made my day.

    • BACH!!!!!!!!
  • In all seriousness, I’ve found that the best running music has been music that I know really well already. I can’t just put any fast track on and go running, I’d rather have some random indie folk song that I’m in love with than 99% of other music

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I think the best music for running would be something with a constant tempo or beat. I used to listen to Nine Inch Nails when I ran, but would generally avoid the off kilter stuff from The Dillinger Escape Plan.

      • Stanley

        190 BPM is the most efficient running cadence.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Very good point, i have noticed this as well

    • Joaquin Stick

      I have a special reserve of albums that I love that I save for moments when I need to work out but have no energy. I don’t listen to them at any other time just so I don’t ware them out. The energy needs to come from your reaction to the music, not the speed of the music itself.

  • tigeraid

    Oh fuck yeah to Manowar.

    I initially made it my GOAL to “be a runner” when I began my weight loss. 95 lbs lost and I still can’t “run.” Top Gear Top Tip: when you were almost 300 lbs, and you lose weight, your knees are still fucked.

    So what I do is, I take an hour or so jog, wherein I walk fast, with various elevation changes near The Ranch, and punctuate it with regular 5 minute intervals of shitty, shuffling jogging. I have a feeling I look retarded, but hey, it works, I get a hell of a workout and feel great.

    So, because my “running” consists of this, super-fast metal is inappropriate. I recommend something like this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O08cqKCpG3A

    • My knees are just fine and I can’t run worth shit. I’ve never been able to distance run at all. I can only go half a mile at most before I have to stop running or jogging and walk for a while.

      • Pentagram Sam

        I think Waynecro might’ve mentioned this awhile back, but when it comes to flat out running, if your knees are jacked up then use the elliptical machines at a gym.

        Hi Intensity Interval training or just make the incline pretty steep. You can actually get good leg conditioning by utilizing this right.

        • tigeraid

          While I appreciate the advice, I can’t fucking stand using the elliptical. And I barely tolerate my treadmill in the winter months.

          BUT I’ve been doing a lot of research into winter running, and the appropriate clothing and equipment. So I can avoid that accursed machine as well.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I’m not a big fan of running machines either. I like to feel like I’m moving somewhere.

        • Waynecro

          Running on concrete/asphalt made my knees sore (which made doing squats a real drag), and I fucked myself up tripping in gopher holes when I tried running in grass. I switched to sprints on a treadmill set to max incline. No more problems. Plus, I don’t have to go outside. I still prefer running up stairs, though.

      • tigeraid

        I found my endurance and cardio was perfectly inversely related to my weight loss–as the months went by, I could jog longer and longer and NOT be gasping or getting chest pains. The further I went, the less pain, the less gasping. BUT my knees still fail me. They’re still my limit.

    • If your knees are hurting, try running on your toes instead of your heels. It may help reduce the trauma of slamming your legs into the ground every time you take another step

      • tigeraid

        I keep seeing that, yeah, or at least landing on the ball of the foot, but boy does it feel weird/wrong. I have no idea how to practice that. Very distracting and awkward.

        • SovereignBCS

          You may be over-striding, which was my problem. When people told me to run on my toes, it felt really awkward. The solution that worked for me was to focus on landing on your foot so that all of your weight is directly over your foot when it makes contact. If you’re reaching out with your leg so that most of your weight is behind your foot when it makes contact, it’s almost impossible not to strike with your heels. But if you concentrate on landing with your feet directly underneath you it’s much easier to change your foot strike (or it was for me).

        • BACH!!!!!!!!

          I think he wants you to start jogging like this:

          http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxfe82wvpG1r9vt2xo1_500.gif

    • Vault Dweller

      I hear that brotha; I been as big as 270 before. Lost nearly 100 pounds the first time I got up that high, then maintained a healthy weight for about 3 years…
      before losing all my healthy habits and getting that big again. Now I’m back trying to lose it and getting ready to start an exercise program again.

      It ended up not being my knees but shin splints that are my problem, probably because I run heel-to-toe.

      • tigeraid

        aaaaaaugh, I’m sorry to hear that. I hope to avoid falling back off the wagon. I cheat more now than I used to, but I’ve still been keeping track of my weight, I think I’m managing.

    • BACH!!!!!!!!

      Shit, I’m 145 lbs. and still can’t jog. Between my allergies during the spring and especially summer, and it getting super humid when I actually can jog, it’s most likely never going to happen.

  • During the winter I ran in the snow to a lot of black metal. It fit the mood perfectly!!! Now that it’s getting warmer and sunnier out I’ve found a lot of Hardcore Punk classics to do the trick. I can do grind, but the flow can become to sporadic and jarring. Although, the new Gadget and Rotten Sound albums do very well I find. My running playlist for the past month has been stickily as listed:

    Driller Killer – Total Fucking Hate, Fuck the World, Reality Bites, & And The Winner Is… LP’s

    Anti Cimex ‎– Absolut Country Of Sweden

    Agathocles – Razor Sharp Daggers

    Nuclear Death Terror ‎– Nuclear Death Terror

    Martyrdöd ‎– S/T LP

    His Hero is Gone – Monuments To Thieves

    General Surgery – Left Hand Pathology

    Caveman Cult – Savage War is Destiny

  • tigeraid

    But also, non-music related: I may have mentioned this before, but I DEVOUR long podcasts while jogging. Far more than music.

    Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History is a revelation: the guy tells stories better than any movie. His oratory skills are top touch, and you just imagine sitting around a fire listening to him tell these stories.

    I cannot recommend it enough when you have time to kill. They are ABSURDLY long, and that’s what’s great about him. Start with Ghosts of the Ostfront, which tells the story of Hitler’s attack on Russia. Then move on to his greatest work (so far), the six part Blueprint for Armageddon, telling the story of WW1 from start to finish.

    http://www.dancarlin.com/hardcore-history-series/

    There’s lots of other good ones. I listen to a lot of Joe Rogan’s as well. The longer the better, as far as I’m concerned.

    • Audiobooks can be good, but only if it’s in the middle of a good part. Kingdom politics is terribly dull running music

      • tigeraid

        eeeeh see, I’ve yet to try the audio book route. I feel like I couldn’t “pause” fiction randomly, yet I can do it with non-fiction just fine. I might try it sometime, though.

        The wife loves audio books though, ever since her concussion, when she couldn’t read visually.

    • Hans Müller

      Recently found one called The Dollop.
      One guy tells an absurd but true story (more or less historical stuff) to another guy who never heard of it before. They joke a lot and laugh like complete maniacs, but you learn stuff (of the sort that’ll likely never be of any use).

      A recent one that stuck with me was “The Jackson Cheese” about Andrew Jackson and a 1400-pound wheel of cheese that resided in the White House for a good year, stinking up half of Washington.

      • tigeraid

        woah. Will look into it, thx.

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      My favorite Dan Carlin podcast is the one about the Mongols, closely followed by his stuff on Hannibal and the Carthaginians. But really, all his stuff is awesome, even if he does take a bit of artistic license describing certain events. I love history anyway, but he makes it even cooler.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Noted!

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    My running playlist:

    Van Halen–Runnin’ with the Devil

    Maiden–Running Free

    Maiden–Run to the Hills

    Maiden–These Colours Don’t Run

    Judas Priest–Running Wild

    Bruce Springstein–Born to Run

    Wings–Band on the Run

    Allman Brothers–No one to Run With

    The Beatles–Run for Your Life

    Bon Jovi–Runaway

    Blues Traveller–Run Around

    The Ventures–Walk Don’t Run

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      This is a good running playlist.

    • tigeraid

      Holy fucking dad rock.

      But I can respect. I see what you’re doing there.

    • Jason Kolkey

      What, no “The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner” or “Run Like Hell”?

      • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

        That would make the playlist longer than I care to run. I’m lazy

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        LOOOOOOONLIENESS OFF THE LOOOONG DISSSTANCE RUNNERRRR!

    • Van Halen – YEP

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Solid!

  • Stanley

    Quorthon died 12 years ago today. Go out for a run. Don’t die young. Be healthy and run free.

    • Count_Breznak

      Na, I’ll keep my joints. Montainbiking and swimming it is. …but I prefer to do the latter in lakes, not on the main road like last weekend.

      • Stanley

        Mountain biking is the most dangerous sport know to man (at least to me). I get hurt all the time doing that shit. I really need to find some easier stuff, but thats easier said that done where I live.

        I swim too, but that’s my least favorite cardio. Swimming in the see is alright, but pool swimming is so blah.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    the only running I do is after my toddler when he’s bolting for the street from the front door, something he’s just begun doing now that he can reach the doorknob. The soundtrack to that is quite frightening, courtesy of my wife.

    • Dubs

      Actually, this is kind of the way you go when you live a healthy lifestyle (although ideally at an older age). Doctors will tell you that not being active/eating well will basic lead you into a long, prolonged decline of poor health, whereas staying active and eating well usually ends in an abrupt and much sharper decline. Basically, you’re sicker for a much shorter time and then just sort of kick the bucket.

      • long, slow death due to preventable disease and a sedentary lifestyle >>>>>>>

      • more beer

        I am extremely active with my job. It’s cardio all day. I was just kind of pointing out the irony there. Since he wrote all of those books on the subject. The truth is no matter what you do. When your number is up it’s up. But he did die doing what he loved.

        • Dubs

          I’d be fine with dying suddenly on a jog.

          And I remember how much physical effort landscaping took.

          • more beer

            I agree going out quickly seems best. I have to say, I am in much better shape than a lot of my friends from back in the day. Who all had jobs that were less demanding than mine. They also didn’t get any sort of exercise.

          • Dubs

          My dad told me about a chick he used to work with who was a super health nut. Vegan, never drank, never smoked, jogged everyday (on top of whatever she did in the navy, which I’m sure was active), never took drugs, etc. And bam, dropped dead while jogging at 22 years of age.

    This very non-metal album was designed specifically for running, at least according to the (possibly not entirely genuine) backstory. Any Krautrock fans?

    https://kosmischerlaufer.bandcamp.com/album/volume-one

  • Haha, I ran to Scam the other week. It was interesting. I prefer to run to From Enslavement to Obliteration and Harmony Corruption instead. Harmony Corruption is a great album to run to actually! Great flow to that album and it’s heavy as a goddamn!

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    I once timed listening to two particular songs off the first Paradise Lost album exactly to running a mile. It worked out alright.

  • Scrimm

    I miss running.

    • Damn, sorry to hear man. Do you have health issues keeping you from doing it? Or just the time?

      • Scrimm

        Gotta get this hernia fixed

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Aww, bummer.

          • Scrimm

            It certainly is. A painful one

  • I’ve never been big on running, mostly cause I had really bad asthma when I was young. I’ve outgrown it now though so maybe I should give it a shot and die outside on the sidewalk instead of inside in the air conditioning.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      solid plan

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      I had really bad asthma as well. You just gotta push through and pace yourself.

  • EsusMoose

    For a couple weeks in late April and early May I ran, I ended up preferring to not to listen to music as I found it harder to not concentrate on the pain of running with earbuds in. One of my earbuds also constantly made a popping sound, so there was that.

    • I listen to music during pretty much everything, except work cause my new job doesn’t allow it (lame lame lame lame) but I imagine running would be no different.

      • EsusMoose

        The lulls between tracks is maddening, any track that doesn’t get start by the 3 or 5 second mark is immediately awful while running.

        • so crossfade them

          • EsusMoose

            These fixing shit ideas are too simple. But I’ll have to see if I can make a running playlist that works well with crossfading, both the transition being smooth and making sure the songs themselves don’t have slower bridges

          • I’m hearing a lot of excuses man

          • EsusMoose

            If there’s something I’m good at it’s excuses and not running

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Definitely a ersonal preference when it comes to exercise and music listening.

  • Jom Pootersan

    Started running on the regular when I was 19, now 23 and still going at it. Once it becomes a normal part of your routine motivation to do it ceases to become difficult. I’ve added weightlifting to my exercising but cardio-based stuff will always be my favorite.

  • Eliza

    This would have been useful if I actually ran, or do any other sort of thing that resembles sport in any way. When you sit around for most of the day, any music can be appropriate.

    • You shouldn’t sit around for most of the day. The void will take you much sooner if you do. Plus, at least in my case, I start to feel like shit when I just sit around doing nothing and dont excercise

      • Eliza

        I know I have to be more active, I just can never bring myself to change anything about my lifestyle.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Try just walking and hiking. Running is kind of intense, but if you start out slow and get your body moving you’ll get there in no time.

      • Eliza

        Thanks for the advice. I do walk back from school, but that takes about 20 minutes. I guess that’s not enough.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          It is a good start!

          • Eliza

            On top of that, I have finally found the stepped I thought was long lost ,so I’ll try to start exercising on that. The playlist recommendations will prove to be useful after all.

        +1 for hiking especially. Find local trails in your area, you don’t have to live in bumfuck country to find good hiking. It makes the walk more varied and interesting and keeps you from getting bored. And you’d be surprised all the cool things and interesting people and neat architecture and crumbling infrastructure you’ll find on the way.

    Awesome article, Boss! Congrats on getting back to running. I hate doing any kind of exercise without music. Actually, pretty much the only time I stop the music is when I’m watching TV.

    • Eliza

      I I didn’t have HBO and Cinemax, I would never watch TV.

      • Waynecro

        I don’t care much for movies these days, so I seldom watch channels like those. I do watch Penn & Teller: Bullshit! on Showtime, though.

        • Eliza

          I haven’t heard of that. Is it some kind of documentary? I forgot to mention I watch those too.

          • Waynecro

            It’s sort of a documentary, but it’s more of a comedy. Penn and Teller (famous comedy magicians) use snarky humor to point out the bullshit in a variety of topics and issues. The show ran for eight seasons, I think. I’m catching up now because I didn’t have Showtime until recently. I’m most psyched about Preacher on AMC, though. The comics were so good, and the show looks like it won’t totally desecrate the source material.

          • Eliza

            If something like this were broadcasted on TV over here, I would know about it and watch it. Sounds like a fun show. Maybe it’s streaming somewhere.

          • Waynecro

            They stopped making it in 2010, so it’s got to be online by now. It’s a fun show.

          • Penn Jillette also has lots of sound theories on life, religion, etc. i dig him.

          • Waynecro

            Totally. He seems pretty on the ball.

          • RJA

            I’m pretty psyched for Preacher too – let’s hope for the best!

          • Waynecro

            The first episode was pretty good, though I’m not sure why they changed Arseface’s character the way they did. I think the show will be pretty good as long as I don’t go all fanboy and freak out when the show diverges from the source material.

      Thank you Mr. PRESIDENT! I’m pretty much the same when it comes to listening to tunes. Unless i absolutely have to not listen, I’m listening.

      • “Mr. President”… that’s got a ring to it. can we organize Mr. Cro as a write-in for the upcoming election?

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          What do you think I’ve been campaigning for the past 2 months?

          • (i’m just building hype here, my Rossy friend)

            You guys are totally getting cherry spots in my cabinet.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yesssssssssssss!!!

        • Waynecro

          If you really want to confuse the system, write in misspellings of actual candidate’s names. For example, “Dolan Tramp” or “Hollary Clampton.”

          • i love little Life Tweaks like that. say it aloud with lots of confidence and the people surrounding you get rill confoozed.

          • Waynecro

            I often mispronounce words just to see if anyone notices. It’d probably be a lot funnier if I weren’t just talking to myself.

      • Waynecro

        Hell yeah, man. Life is much more of a drag without sweet jams blasting. And music gets me way more pumped for exercise than even the most meth-like preworkout supplements.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          The only preworkout i take is my morning cup of coffee

          • Waynecro

            I take a few supplements like creatine and beta alanine, but I’m not trying to get caffeine blasted and meth hyper before workouts these days.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I tried a preworkout once. Made me sick to my stomach, never again.

          • Waynecro

            I’ve used some pretty crazy ones before. My brother tried one I liked and said he felt like he was on meth again. Plus it made him puke and prevented him from pissing for some reason.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Gah!

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          The only preworkout I take is my morning coffee

  • remember Paris Hilton? i miss that flusher. Paris, if you see this… hope you’re doing well! hope you’re still hot AF and eating lots of Carl’s Jr.

    I love running but I keep fucking hurting myself when I do it. Haven’t gone on a run in about 3 or so weeks because I screwed up my foot (think it’s plantar fasciitis). Had to start getting my cardio out of drumming like a maniac, now in the past 2 weeks I’ve been able to do hiit routines with no pain in my foot. Actually debating testing the waters and taking my first run today, so what a perfectly coincidental article! Anyhow, I love running to Mgla, might try out running with the new Moonsorrow today.
