Best running playlists for Polar Running Program

July 6, 2016

You know the feeling. Knees weak. Arms are heavy – even though you’ve been carbo-loading on mom’s spaghetti. Then you put on your power anthem and the fatigue’s gone. You’re ready.

Sometimes the difference between nailing or failing a running workout is the right running playlist. We put together playlists to go with the different running workouts in the Polar Running Program – the personal and ready-made running plan available for free in Polar Flow.

Before every playlist, we’ve included a screencap from Polar Flow for each of the different types of workouts. If you don’t yet know what the different intensity zones mean, read this easy-to-understand guide to heart rate zones.

Oh… for the best experience, go full retro and disable shuffle.
