Tough Girl Podcast: Podcast of the Month

podcast of the month

Have you ever wondered where all the women adventurers are? The women who row across the Atlantic Ocean, cycle across continents and run some of the toughest races out there. From full time explorers and mountaineers to the ordinary women doing extraordinary things, Sarah Williams has interviewed them all on her Tough Girl Podcast.

The Tough Girl podcast is really inspiring, Sarah talks to women who are doing amazing things and who, without the podcast, I just would not have heard of. Some of the challenges the women interviewed are doing or have done can seem a bit unachievable for the mere mortal, but Sarah isn’t afraid to ask about the practicalities of these adventures. Finding out how ordinary women, with family, with a full time job, find the time and the money to go on these adventures certainly make adventures seem possible.

Sarah’s mission is to motivate and inspire women and girls and she certainly does it by talking to these adventurous women. She’s not one to shy away from challenges herself, having completed the Marathon des Sables in April 2016 and in 2017 and about to hike the Appalachian Trail (2,190 miles) in 100 days.

Essential warm up routine for runners

How much time do you give your warm up routine before you start running? Be honest! A brisk 5 minute walk, an ‘easy’ first mile or a half hearted attempt at a few stretches because you kind of know you should? Your warm up routine is an essential part of your running and could be…
