That's a fantastic question, Chris. I keep meaning to write a Pandora blog post on this subject...

Here's my advice.

If you're trying for a fairly upbeat station, with high beats per minute, try making stations based on a number of individual songs that exemplify the tempo you want.
[See here (http://blog.pandora.com/faq/index.htm...) for more info on creating and tuning Pandora stations.]

Here's my exercise station, in case you might like it:

I also asked my co-workers their advice:

Here's a station suggestion, from a co-worker who's a musician and a DJ:

Another co-worker, also a musician and a professional DJ, adds these 2 stations to the mix. He makes amazing stations *and* he's a marathon runner, so I'd try his out:

He says, "this is good running station, seeded with jungle & drum & bass.
160-170 bpm, pretty much."

"this is good too. it's house though, 120-130 bpm"

And one last co-worker, an electronica musician, has this to say:
"160-170 - that'd be breakbeat or drum & bass in the electronica world. Maybe try these artists:
deekline & wizard
DJ Icey
Crystal Method
Chemical Brothers"

I hope all that helps, and that I didn't overwhelm you!

Happy exercising!
