Retro Runners PlayList Library

This page is in honour of my running buddies on Health Unlocked C25K Razouski who was the first runner to join. We now have Antet, Decker, Polly 2810, Lard of Ale, GingerBohemian and are known as the retro runners.

We share playlists and shriek (virtually) usually at the 80s music choices. It seems we have tried big hair, knickerbockers, gold lame, and frilled shirts. Razouski was a little under the weather, suffering with an ear infection, and  it was causing her a lot of grief. So the creation of this page and increasing playlist, is in her gold lame honour!

Each week I treat myself to 3 or 4 new downloads, depending on how well my running has gone.  The rules are :-

Downloads made each Sunday

The weekly km is determined by my training system,  as follows:

Week X = 1 x run 7km, 2 x 6.5km

Week Y = 1 x run 7.5km, 2 X 7km

Week Z = 1 x run 8km, 2 x 7.5km
