MAKE YOUR RUN MORE PRODUCTIVE WITH PODCASTS

March 8th, 2012 by Gallagher John No Comments

My story of becoming a bit of a runner this year has been challenging, fun, and is really still in development.  I have learned to appreciate and enjoy running more than I thought I would.  On my iPod, I create playlists with music that last about the time I need to complete my runs.  However, sometimes, the music gets ‘old’ for me.  I needed something different. 

Enter the Podcast!

The Podcast is a great way to have ‘entertainment’ while exercising AND get professional development at the same time.  Here is the list of Podcasts that I currently have on my iPod:

  • The Herd with Colin Cowherd – This gets me my daily injection of sports and Colin Cowherd delivers it in a funny, pull no punches kinda way!
  • In the Loop with Andy Andrews – NYT Best Selling Author shares some really good insights about his writings and other topics
  • North Point Community Church with Andy Stanley – This podcast gives me some spiritual challenges in my daily life.  Andy Stanley delivers it in a way that I can relate to, which means he simplifies the Word.  I refer to it as putting it on the lower shelf so it is easy to reach.
  • This is Your Life  with Michael Hyatt – Leadership development, personal productivity, living on purpose.  This new podcast will be full of nuggets.  I look forward to this one each week.
  • Podcast Answer Man with Cliff Ravenscraft – I started listening to this one at a suggestion of Michael Hyatt.  I am considering starting my own podcast.  Need to let that idea simmer a while.

These podcasts give me a good mix of personal and leadership development, spiritual growth, and sports. 

Do you have any other podcasts you listen to that you would suggest?

What do you listen to on your iPod when you are working out?
