Script:

Presenter: Thank you for joining us in another edition of Live Science. In our studios today we have Dr. Patterson, who has come to talk to us about the benefits of exercising to music. Dr. Patterson, welcome.

Dr. Patterson: Good morning, Chloe. Thank you for having me. Running has been gaining popularity over the last few years. More and more people go running on a regular basis and even lots of them take part in races. Even if you don’t run a race or a marathon, it’s very important to keep some things in mind. The first thing, of course, is to warm up properly, at least for 10 minutes. Another thing which can help runners run better, believe it or not, is the music they run to.

Presenter: So, you’re saying that there’s a specific kind of music we should listen to while running?

Dr. Patterson: Definitely. In fact, recent studies have shown that there’s a strong connection between our ears and our feet. Many doctors have found three factors that contribute to a song’s motivational qualities: the rhythm, the musicality and the association the runner makes while listening to it. These factors are related to how the music matches the heartbeat of the runner and how fast he/she intends to run.

Presenter: I see. So picking the right music can have several benefits, right?

Dr. Patterson: That’s right. In fact, it’s been discovered that people who ran in time to music they liked found that they required 7 percent less oxygen to do the same work when compared to running with music they weren’t interested in. So, it’s fundamental to run to music you really like. Besides, that music can also help block out that little voice in your brain telling you that it’s time to stop. As a result, there is a reduction in the effort people perceive while exercising, which helps them continue exercising longer.

Presenter: Oh, now that I think of it, I usually run longer when I’m listening to music. I feel I get distracted and forget what I’m doing.

Dr. Patterson: I’m sure you do. The same happens to me as well. I’ve been running for almost all my life and if I ever forget to take my MP3 with me, I run much less than when I’m listening to music. In fact, I get bored and go back home quite soon.
