My favorite podcasts

Podcast are a great way to shorten your time while holding a plank position. Or any other strength exercise, especially those uncomfortable positions that make your muscles screaming in search of “time forward button”. They are also quite effective for keeping you up to date with recent research, new opinions or getting to know new people and their views. In the past I literally listened to thousands of podcast episodes, mainly from the nutrition & lifestyle fields, and some from triathlon & endurance world as well. While I listen them mainly during strength exercises and while cooking, I could never wear headphones while running outdoors. Not only due to safety reasons, have I just never found it boring to run outdoors. Probably due to enhanced blood flow through the brain and the flow of ideas that follow 🙂

Nonetheless, here are the podcasts I listen to most often:



Robb WolfThe Paleo solution podcast (Robb Wolf)

Je hotela imeti tudi svojo sliko na mojem blogu.
Sem ji rekel, da samo slika ne bo šla, bo treba nekaj zraven napisat.
Je rekla OK.
Sem rekel brez dlake na jeziku in šel za uro na spinner.
Tole je ratalo. Necenzurirano, nelektorirano…



Ok, najprej naj povem, da je njegova paleo prehrana kar spremenila moje bivanje pri njem.

Najprej so mi bile vse jedi zanič.Najbolj me je motilo laneno seme.Naprimer pizza ali polpeti z laneno moko…

Zdaj pa k treningu in tekmam! Ko mi je prvič povedal, da gre na Hawaje sen bila hkrati vesela, navdušena, presenečena in vznemirjena.Moje misli so vse pogosteje uhajale k strahu, da se mu bo kaj zgodilo.Tistih nekaj mesecov sem se spraševala ali bo ali ne bo.Olajšanja, ko sem ga naposlet spet videla ne bom pozabila.Za druge Hawaje ne bom izgubljala besed, dodam lahko samo navdušenje in nekakšen ponos nad očetovim rezultatom.Na drugih manjših triationih ni imel treme, je pa priznal, da jo ima pred Hawaji!

Vsak torek se dobimo pri babici in dedku.Takrat se oči in stric(tudi on je triatlonec) najpogosteje pogovarjata o treningu in tekmah.Večinoma mi je takrat dolgčas.Ponavadi mi oči takrat pokaže slike in video posnetke.To pa mi je všeč.

Zadnjih nekaj vikendov imamo tako kombinacijo, da ob sobotah hodimo v hribe ob nedeljah pa se hodimo kopati.Oči me je poskušal navčiti plavti kravelj.Najprej s plovcem.Ampak so se moje noge dvignile, glava pa je ostala v vodi.Kolesa ne znam voziti, tečem pa tudi ne preveč hitro.Tako, da jaz ne bom triatlonka!

B00301 My daughter & me



She wanted a picture of herself on my blog.
I said only picture won’t go, there needs to be text as well.
She said OK.
I said don’t mince words and went for an hour on spinner.
The following came out. Uncensored, unedited… (only translated from Slovene)


Okay, first let me say that his paleo diet changed my life with him.

First of all, all dishes sucked. I was most bothered by linseed . For example, pizza or burgers with flax meal…

Now to training and races! When I first heard that he will go to Hawaii I was happy at the same time, excited, surprised and thrilled. My thoughts increasingly escaped the fear that something will happen to him . Those few months I was wondering whether it will or won’t . The relief when I finally saw him again I will not forget. For his second Hawaii I won’t lose words, I add only kind of enthusiasm and pride of my father’s result. On the other smaller triathlons he did not have stage fright , but admitted that he was nervous before Hawaii !

Every Tuesday we meet at Grandma and Grandpa . At the time, he and uncle ( he’s triathlete as well) frequently talk about training and races. Mostly I am bored at the time . Usually my father then shows me pictures and videos . I like that.

The last few weekends we have such a combination that on Saturdays we walk in the mountains on Sunday we go swimming . Father tried to teach me freestyle . First with a pull buoy. But my feet surfaced and the head remained in the water. I cannot ride bike and I’m not running fast. So that I will not be triathlete !
