S2E7: How To Pretend You Know What You're Doing While Training for a Race

In this Episode

We are by no means experts when it comes to training for a race - but these products definitely made us feel like we were.

BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES

BOSE

For a reliable, long-range bluetooth headphones, look no further than Bose SoundSport. A little on the pricier side, these are a great option when you’re looking for long-lasting quality and a perfect in-ear fit.

MARSTECH

Don’t want to break your bank on bluetooth headphones? After sorting through reviews, pricing, and quality, I landed on MarsTech. Designed with sports in mind, these headphones are noise cancelling, lightweight, long-lasting, and did I mention, sweat-proof.

SPOTIFY

I know, I know… Spotify. Can it get any more basic? I’m sure most of our listeners are familiar with this service. If not, it’s a music, podcast, and video streaming service. All we’re saying is don’t waste your time on the free version. If you’re going to spend long hours training, Premium is worth it - if just for the uninterrupted listening.

Koo-Care

Although this is probably the lowest tech, least modern thing we’ve ever talked about on the podcast; this is absolutely a lifesaver when you need to be icing your body while also finishing up your household chores. Seriously, don’t waste your time lying down while taking care of all of your aches and pains - get up and moving with this simple solution.

ULLA

A smart hydration gadget that keeps track of how much water you drink and reminds you when it’s time to drink more. The company behind this device claims that users who follow the device’s blinking sensors will drink 3 x more water. We can vouch! Although bright and slightly disruptive, it gets the job done. This tiny bottle attachment is the reason why I was able to stay hydrated during a busy workday. Honestly, when I would take the battery out because it was annoying me, my water consumption went to shit.
