i have always relied on music to get me through solo workouts and through 95% of all of my runs. but i only refresh my music once every three months or so which means a playlist gets pretty stale by the time three months comes along.
i have heard of a lot of folks using podcasts to "fuel" their workouts or runs but i'm not sure that i'm sold on it. i hate listening to npr and i imagine listening to a podcast is very similar. plus, how motivating can a person blabbering in your ear be?
so i've been skeptical to the podcast idea but also open to it since it seems to work for so many.
i want to throw the question out to you all:
- what do you use on your workouts?
- are you loyal to music?
- a podcast fan?
- and if you're using podcasts, which ones are the best to start with?
