Week 7 wiped me out!  Well, my 9 mile run this past Sunday took me down.  I was SO exhausted.  When I tried napping on the couch, Vishnu jumped on me and talked to me as if I was wide awake.  Gah!  I may or may not have told him that I would punch him in the face if he didn’t stop bothering me!  Haha.  Don’t mess with a tired Par!

Here’s what week seven looked like:

Monday – Gaiam TV yoga + 2 short You Tube dance videos (this one and this one)
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – 4 mile run
Thursday – Full body strength training
Friday – 4.5 mile run
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – 9 mile run

My long run wasn’t as fast as I would have liked it to be, but I’ll take it.  At this point, I’m focused on endurance, pacing myself, and finishing strong.  Double digit runs here I come!

What do you listen to?

What the heck do you listen to when you run?  I get this question a lot.  Because running is so mental for me at this point, I need to be distracted.  While most people probably create running playlists, I create podcast playlists!  Music is secondary for me.

Here’s a list of the podcasts I listen to:

The Jillian Michaels Show (she still annoys me sometimes, but I like her fitness approach)
The Smart Passive Income Podcast
This American Life
No Meat Athlete Radio
Katy Says
Dishing Up Nutrition
Kimberly Snyder’s Podcast
The One Your Feed

With quite a few podcasts lined up, I’m almost guaranteed to have something to listen to!

What do you listen to when you workout?  Music, podcasts, nothing?

  1. Ohh I am so glad you posted these podcasts! I usually prefer listening to music when I run but during my walks, I rather listen to podcasts- the time really does fly by! I usually listen to Jillian Michaels too but looking forward to checking out some of the others!
