RadioPublic is a free podcast app that’s perfect for your run.
Music can be a great motivator to help push you through a hard run, but sometimes hearing the same songs over and over can be, well repetitive. Podcasts are a great alternative to a music running rut, and with shows covering thousands of topics and millions of episodes you can press play and never hear the same thing twice. We’ve compiled four playlists of awesome shows to get you started.
30 podcast episodes perfect for a 5k run
I was on track for getting my 5k down to below 20 minutes before my right achilles decided to put the kibosh on that goal… grrrrr. Maybe this will be the year! Anyway this 30 podcast episodes that are 30 minutes playlist is chockfull of great 30 minute episodes. The perfect length for a warmup, training run and a short cool down. Press play, learn, laugh and feel more connected to people while you run.
