Pacer Series: 9-Minute Mile Running Pacer

When I signed up for my first long distance race, I was asked what my “minute mile” pace was. Ugh… since it was my first race, I had no idea! What should my minute mile pace be? How do I know I’m actually running at that pace? And what BPM supports that minute-mile pace?

Since I’m a beat fascist, I simply had to know the right BPM to help me finish my race at my goal time. I found a couple (not many!) generic charts with recommendations, but none with all the pieces in ONE convenient spot (bpm, pace, mph, race finish time). As I tested each pace I found the following BPMs to most fitting:

Once I figured out that 160 BPM was my perfect 9-minute mile pace, I simply had to have a workout album with a consistent, non-stop, hard-driving BPM to keep me at that pace. Enter… 9-Minute Mile Running Pacer!

It’s designed to help you train at the following pace:

  • 6.7 mph
  • 28 minute 5K race time
  • 3 hour 56 minute marathon time

This is an album with highly technical music that puts you in the right frame of mind to run… and run hard… at the same, results-driven pace. Check out the song list! It mixes multi-decade hit songs (like Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” to current favs like “Happy” and even to Zepplin-era hits like “Whole Lotta Love”) with technical running songs - and it feels like pure running magic.

Take a listen ;) #keepingitfresh

*This workout album is a “training tool” only, actual finish time depends on fitness level and stride length.
