If you’re a runner and you don’t have this on your phone…you’re missing out.
Go to http://www.rockmyrun.com, or download the rock my run app.
You create an account, and then can download a workout mix of your favorite songs for free! It’s not a collage of songs in a genre, they’re like DJ mixes where they will add a beat in the background and cut down the songs length. I downloaded the app, and it’s awesome!
It’s nice because even though I love my iTunes, it’s refreshing to have a mix of songs that I’m not expecting. Plus slow songs I like they will add a beat too, which revamps the sound for running.
I used it the other day on a treadmill because it was too dark in the evening for me to safely run outside (I don’t have reflective wear yet). Definitely helps with treadmill days (:
You get one free download a month, which kind of sucks, but you can always pay to access more mixes or get more downloads.
