I like to listen to podcasts when I go running. Music is encouraging for getting my sweat on on a cardio machine or in a workout class, but for running a podcast gives me something to listen to and think about so I'm not thinking so much about how far or how long I am going.
I don't go to a therapist, though there are times I think I should with regards to my food issues (only slightly joking here..), but many times these podcasts are all the therapy I need.
Today I picked a Half Size Me podcast solely based on the length of time so it would last the duration of my run. Heather's interview with Scott Abel was interesting, full of good reminders and also well balanced.
None of the information was new to me, but when I completed four miles of running I not only felt better physically I also felt better emotionally for the words of encouragement I listened to. *contented sigh*
