Fave OCR / training / running postcast

Can’t get enough of this podcast- right now it’s all I’m listening to on my recovery workouts, while stretching and even commuting to work. My only fear is that I’m going to catch up to the content and have to wait for new episodes to drop 😂seriously much love from Australia 🇦🇺

After years of not wanting to learn how to program running.
