The Lady Southpaw website and Running Rocks blog have been re-built. I decided to fold the blog into the website so they now function as the same entity.
Check out the new site:
The home page is www.ladysouthpaw.com
Read about the origin of “Lady Southpaw” and the band
This page will be updated with events as they come. Right now we are ramping up to play alongside the New York City Marathon course. Look for a blog post on that soon!
Running Music –
This is an article about the concept of “Running Music.” It is something I’m really passionate about. Running music isn’t be just any music you’ve got on your iPod anymore. It has the potential to really tap into your brain and enhance your whole experience if you choose it wisely.
180 bpm Cadence –
Following some of the more artistic and philosophical reasoning behind running music, this article on cadence is more about the functional aspects and how training with properly timed music can actually affect your running biomechanics.
Soon, I will be previewing events, song releases, and sharing relevant running music news including race reports and music reviews from a runner’s perspective.
A new exciting feature of the blog will be an archive of running approved songs and playlists. I will be posting what I have so far from my personal iTunes library for running and building from there. I will also be sharing my playlists with built-in workouts. This should be a useful feature for runners who are always on the search for new music to listen to.
Check back soon and let me know if there are particular songs you want me to review or include!
