Five Running Podcasts to Help You Get Sweaty

It’s National Running and Fitness Week. Let’s get sweaty.

Here are 5 podcasts you need to listen to if you gotta go fast:

I’ll Have Another with Lindsey Hein

Lindsey Hein is a runner and her podcast I’ll Have Another features interviews with people of all types. Not every episode is about running, or even fitness in general, but more about motivation and living with purpose. This episode features Jackie Merritt, a physical therapist, doctor of biomechanics, and competitive ultra runner. She gives advice on healthy training and prioritizing the important things in life.


Running Rogue

This podcast is hosted by professional running coaches, some of whom coached athletes in the 2016 Rio Olympics, so they kinda know what they’re talking about. Many of their episodes are geared toward experienced runners, but in this episode they give advice to anyone who is looking to start a running program.


Trail Runner Nation

If you gotta run, you might as well run where it’s beautiful. Trail Runner Nation exists to share knowledge and advice to the trail running community, and is for beginners all the way to pros. This interview with professional triathlete Brad Kearns tells you why slowing down may help you go faster in the end.


Get Fit Guy’s Quick and Dirty Tips to Slim Down and Shape Up

GFGQaDTtSDaSU doesn’t really roll off the tongue smoothly, but Brock Armstrong’s advice is fit for everyone, whether you’re just beginning to get into the gym or have been working out for a while. This episode on why you should incorporate obstacle racing might convince you to sign up for that mud run you’ve been thinking about.


Endurance Planet

If you’re into long-distance running and looking to improve, Endurance Planet is here for you.

Bonus! Underdog Podcast Episode 24 with the Father of Aerobics

This episode of the Underdog podcast takes us back to the roots of modern aerobics. Dr. Cooper coined the term ‘aerobics’ and was ridiculed by the community, who told Dr. Cooper that running could only do harm. Early adopters who did not have a term for running called it ‘Coopering’ and helped start the running phenomenon.
