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.
