Podrunner and John Piper

I went and worked out last night. It was so enjoyable. I didn't think I'd ever say that. The thing that has been making a big difference for me lately has been this podcast that I have been listening to. It is called Podrunner. It is all electronic dance music, which I would normally not be into at all. But the DJ that does it, DJ Steveboy, really puts the music together well. He tells you how many beats per minute which lets you know just how fast of a workout it will be. It helps me keep my pace up and keep my focus. You can check out the website here. If you would like to check out Podrunner on iTunes, click on the Podrunner icon above.

I have also been watching and listening to the last two weeks of John Piper's sermons. He is focusing on marriage right now. He is a good preacher but maybe an even better teacher. The crux of his sermons has been that the main reason for marriage is to demonstrate to us and to the world God's covenant love for us. Through showing undeserved grace and mercy to our spouse, we demonstrate God's undeserved grace and mercy. They are great messages. Check them out here or in iTunes here. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

So glad to hear that you're working out. I'm convinced that it's not only good for the body, but good for the soul too.

I will listen this weekend when I've got some good time to devote to it...thanks for the recommendation and I will pass along the podrunner to Alex, who by the way has been hitting the sauna and hot tub after his workouts. Does your gym have one? If so, he would highly recommend that right back at ya.

I like the podrunner idea--i know there are different 'workout' mixes you can download--i need one that pumps me up, which is usually hip hop, but I could give techno a try!!

Our t.v. remote broke and now I have to turn the treadmill down to walking to change the channel!! Is it possible to be lazy while running?? I usually just end up watching 'The Wheel'--commercials and all :(
