MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE PODCASTS

I started listening to podcasts about a year ago. I was struggling with my runs post Seawheeze, and a good friend told me to try listening to a podcast, as that’ll help take my mind off the struggle train I was on. And O-M-G, she was blooming right!

Now I tend to do a third of my runs listening to a podcast, a third listening to music, and the remaining third I go without earbuds so I can listen to my breathing and foot fall.

I dip in and out of a lot of podcasts, but the 5 below are definitely my favourites. The presenters are motivational, inspirational and I get so much out of each run; I now see those podcast runs as personal development AND physical development – double whammy!

AHH Lululemon SEAWHEEZE, HOW I LOVE YOU SO…

Seawheeze 2019 is just around the corner, how did that come round so fast! It doesn’t even feel like a year ago that I raced….and then got terribly injured! I was reminiscing about the race the other night while I was on a client consultation call, and it inspired me to write up a blog with all my tips and highlights from the expo and race. Now it’s likely that the race format will be slightly different from my 2018 experience, but it might give you a taste of what’s to come!

I’m only running one race this year, and why I am super excited by that.

It’s March 9th – normally by now I’d have at least 80% of my races for the year booked in, or at the very least know exactly what races I plan to run and my goal for each. This year is different – I only have one 10k race in April, and that’s only in my calendar as I am a clinic instructor for the group – the rest of my year is wide open, and I plan to keep it that way.

LULULEMON SEAWHEEZE (VANCOUVER) HALF-MARATHON – MY TRAINING SO FAR

Where has the summer gone? I feel like I was just starting (and re-starting) Seawheeze 2018 training, and now we are in week 10 – THE RACE IS IN 4 MORE WEEKS!!!! YIKESSSSS!  If you are training for this race (or any fall/autumn race for that matter), how has training been going for you? Are you feeling race ready, or wish you had a few extra weeks/months before race day?
