Let's face it. Running 26.2 miles is a lot better when you listen to music. But not just any music. This Instructable walks you through how I compiled my Marathon Mix Tape. The key features are:
- All the music either
- Is something I love or
- Is something I love AND is between 175-185 beats per minute to help me keep my pacing
- Between every track I have a 20 second sample of a metronome set at 180 beats per minute
- There are 28 segments of friends and family rooting for me along the way.
- At key points of the course I include a description of the terrain and what I need to prepare myself for. I also coach myself on form and pace.
Here is how to do it.
