I follow the recommendation that it's good practice to run with a close to 170/180 bpm pace, at any speed (slow or fast). That is, when running you should be hitting the floor around 180 times per minute, which is near to 3 per second, in a somewhat waltz rythm. I understand this bpm timing is also recommendable for riding a bicycle. One available resource to get to this pace is a metronome, that is many times included in the features of different watches, such as the gps type.
The broader question is if it's possible to find musics that have this type of rythm. There's a page that does this for you: jog.fm. It's awesome but it just offers song by song ideas. I'd like to know:
Is there a software that grabs a music collection at 180 bpm?
...perhaps possible to fetch from my hard drive directly, or online music. Most likely a fitness instructor, or even a dj should be able to answer this. Open source options? Maybe there's even a certain amount of music genre that can answer this directly, say a set of LPs that have this pace.
Is there at least one LP that has a 180 rpm?
I think perhaps something by Kraftwerk, but just guessing.
