How To Boost Your Jog Morale Using Military Cadence And Run Farther

Run beyond your max with this professional mind hack.

Running with military cadence


  • Keep the pace
  • Clear your mind
  • Improve mood

Military cadence is a call-and-response work song sung by military personnel while running or marching to maintain a united pace. If you are like my past self, you are having problems running as far as you would like and you will benefit greatly from listening to jody calls.

Listening to these chants will make you feel bad slowing down your pace - not being up to speed with virtual others. And the same time, it blanks your mind, and puts you into an active, but also meditative state. It makes you truly love your life.

After finding that I am not motivated enough for high-intensity interval training, which is superior after a certain fitness point, I returned to the above method today. And it works as perfect as ever.
