My Favorite: Podcasts


I got addicted to podcasts when...

I was battling a series of injuries in the fall/winter of 2015 and had to spend countless hours in the pool. I bought myself a waterproof ipod shuffle on Amazon that I clipped to my swimsuit or swim cap and started to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and music while I swam and aqua jogged. I really like podcasts because I find them more distracting than music during these boring cross-training sessions. I get lost in the stories and the time flies by! I also love feeling productive- I'm learning something and working out at the same time! Double whammy!

Podcasts are also great for the plane. Plug those headphones in and be entertained for 30-45min by someone's story. Here are some of my favorite podcasts and my favorite episodes for each one. If you have any that you would recommend, feel free to let me know
