    280: Running is Not The Best Way to Lose Weight

    280: Running is Not The Best Way to Lose Weight

    Running is not the best way to lose weight.  So many people get into running trying to lose weight or get in shape (I’m one of those people!), but today we want to talk about why this is not a good way to look at your running or even to lose weight.

     

    When people run to lose weight, it often leads them to train too hard and only care about burning calories, which leads them to overtraining and actually the opposite of what they want.  In fact, many runners tend to actually gain weight, especially if they are training for a longer distance race.  This leads to so much frustration and defeat because not only are you not losing weight, but you are also now hurt and exhausted in the process.

    278: Pros and Cons of Running Groups

    278: Pros and Cons of Running Groups

    Some of you may be solo runners and some of you enjoy running with friends or a running group.  Today, we are going to take a look at the pros and cons of running groups, so you can decide if you want to join one or if you’re good flying solo.

    Many runners love their groups and can’t run by themselves.  Others feel too self conscious, thinking they might slow other people down, so they only run alone.

    This leads both types of people to potentially limit themselves in some way and miss out on a really amazing part of running.

Great podcast!

This podcast is great for new runners, current runners, and getting-back-to-running runners! Whatever your goals are as a runner, you can find what you need from this podcast! If you want running to be a part of your real life, this podcast is a great place for you!

Awesome advice from real world experience

I really enjoy this podcast. I feel like Kevin and Angie have personalities that relate well to a lot of runners and always look to solve the problem so it won’t happen again. Injuries and over training are issues and they aren’t afraid to get real about how to resolve those issues. I’d 100% recommend this to a person wanting to get into running or even someone who feels like they just aren’t getting better.

Give it a try

I have been running for many years and I am slowly learning that feedback is not always bad. These podcasts make me enjoy running. It makes running feel more like a hobby versus a chore. I am learning something new every podcast and highly recommend it for the new and the old.
