Since I’ve got my long run on my mind, I thought I would talk about what I do to help get me through long runs. I like to listen to Podcasts because then you get to listen to more like a story or a show while you’re out which can be more entertaining. There are all types out there, I personally like a few morning shows, which I don’t get to listen to normally, so I subscribe to their podcasts and listen while I run. They talk about news, and celebrities, nothing too thought provoking, but entertaining while running. Here’s an example of one that I like a lot, probably my favorite:
That morning show also does a “secret show” which is a podcast you can subscribe to, but it is for 18 or older and so you can assume the content is different. It is also entertaining, but isn’t for everyone.
The other thing I really like about my iPod is that it plays the radio!! That way when I’m sick of my music or don’t feel like a podcast, I can just see what’s on.
In preparation for this morning’s long run, I made this very simple rice for dinner. It was good, but the goal for a regular dinner is really to add stuff to it, which I didn’t do. So it was a little boring but perfect for a pre-long run
It looked like this:
Here’s what I’m having before I head out.
Are you doing a long run today? How far? Have fun!!
