'Music is a legal drug for athletes," claims Dr Costas Karageorghis, an expert on the effects of music on exercise, at Brunel University. In his latest book, Inside Sport Psychology, he claims that listening to music while running can boost performance by up to 15%.

I take it naijarulers don't do much running going by the response to this thread so far.

Hahaha. I have not ran in some time but when I did, music helped. As long as your focus is not on the actual running on the burn in your legs and thighs, you tend to run longer distance. And music is a good distraction especially when you have the Rocky-type music.
