Beats Per Minute Chart

By Skip


Here is a chart that I found online to help you create playlists based upon the BPM (Beats Per Minute) of a song.

Figure out your range of BPM (Beats Per Minute, which is steps per minute) for running at a variety of speeds (MPH or Minute Miles). Use the following chart as a guide for now:

Minute/mile 10 9 8 7 6 5
Miles/hour 6 6.7 7.5 8.6 10 12
Minute/km 6.2 5.4 5 4.2 3.4 3
Kilometers/hour 9.7 10.8 12 13.8 16 19.3
BPM range 146-151 153-158 160-166 169-175 178-183 184-192

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
