A while ago my sister asked me if I ever download Podcasts to listen to while I run. The answer was no – I have a couple of running playlists that are my standbys and, being a creature of habit with my workouts, I always listen to one of them whether I am running outside or at the gym on a treadmill.
If I am being totally honest – my playlists are getting stale and they are not motivating me to run the way they used to and since I am always trying something new in other parts of my life, last week I gave the Podcast idea a try. My sister had also recommended I listen to the series Making Oprah: The Inside Story of a TV Revolution. It is a public radio broadcast with several episodes. I downloaded all of them on my phone and found them very interesting and easy to listen to.
I am now hooked on the Podcast thing. I feel like I am running faster, keeping a more even pace and running further – especially on the treadmill. No longer do I turn on my stale playlist and The Food Network and listen to music while watching people cook while I exercise. My new problem is that I need to find a new Podcast series to download for next week – any recommendations?
