How Swimming Can Make You a Better Runner. Whether you are a competitive runner or not, the benefits of swimming for runners are endless.
Recently I went down to Half Moon Bay and decided to hike the Purisima Creek to Grabtown Gulch to Borden Hatch Mill Loop. I’ve been to the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space before when we were out for vacation. I enjoyed it last time, so I thought it would be fun to come back.
The New Balance More v2 is a high cushioned trainer from New Balance. While I tried on the original NB More, I didn’t run in it. It felt slightly bulky and cumbersome to me.
As the racing shoes get higher stack heights, it seems like the maximum cushioned trainers from various brands do. It isn’t a new concept, and Hoka has built most of their shoes on higher stack heights.
The higher stack height in trainers allows for more plush and luxurious rides. The New Balance More v2 is also known as the “New Balance Fresh Foam More v2 or NB More v2”. All different names for the same shoe.
If it isn’t obvious, More in the NB More v2 stands for “More Shoe.” LOL. Compared to the New Balance 1080v10 or NB 880v10, it has more cushion. If you feel like you want or need more cushion, the NB More v2, might be for you.
Over 2 years ago, I blogged about running podcasts. Since then, some have come and gone. The podcast world has only gotten bigger since early 2016 or even 2018. Is it the new blogging? These days you can find topics ranging from weight loss to marathon running to interviewing professional runners, whatever your interest.
I’m by no means a podcast expert (and you will not see a LOLZ Podcasts anytime soon), but here is an updated list of podcasts I’ve been listening to. I’ve listened to at least an episode of each podcast, but not every single episode of everyone. I prefer light-hearted podcasts. Most of these podcasts are hosted by runners for runners. Some are from professional coaches and some are from your everyday runner. The running world is a big space with room for all.
For me, I listen to podcasts when I’m working or even cleaning. I usually struggle with listening when I’m running because I can’t focus and run. I do like listening to podcasts for swimming though and some of my long runs are a couple of hours long, I’ve listened to podcasts.
