training run #1145

14C, wet, cloudy, mild. A 15 mile run.  I heard the rain on the window but dragged myself out of bed.  There were heavy showers for the first 5-6km.  Turning west in Kiveton I had a headwind, then the sun broke through and it felt warm for the return home.

This was my second long run done listening to running podcasts. They seemed to distract me from monitoring my running effort, and a collection of niggles came and went. Again, I seemed to run slightly faster (than without iPod) and I finished tired but not wrecked.

    Podcasts are great. I have listened to audiobooks in the past too and it really helps. Marathon talk is one of my favourite podcasts. People talking about running whilst I run! What could be better.

      Someone suggested Running On Om podcast. Supposedly about running yoga veganism feminism etc. I’m not into yoga vegan or fem but the guests interviewed have been very interesting and inspiring :-). Think I will keep listening to podcasts on my weekend long runs, for now.
