Oh snap – it’s 2015 y’all! I’m a little bit concerned about how quickly time is going by these days, however, I am also enjoying myself a lot more these days. Damn, that adage is true! Unfortunately, I’m also concerned about the way my winter weight isn’t just creeping up on me, it has basically slapped me in the face and decided to crash on my couch for an undetermined amount of time. BUT – I just forked over money for a gym membership and new running shoes and I’m ready to evict that bitch and get my ass in gear to run a 10k this summer (I realize that a half marathon would’ve been more impressive, but all that training would really interfere with my drinking schedule).
And so I present to you: Week 1 version 4(!!!) of the Chubby Jones Couch to 5k podcast. I think I found some great music to get us started with a 5 minute walking warmup followed by intervals of 60 seconds of
running jogging and 90 seconds of brisk walking for a total of 20 minutes (the math on this is a little iffy, but whatever).
Without further ado, here is the latest Couch to 5k Week 1 podcast (right click, “save as”)
We’ve finally made it to week 9, now let’s get out there and kick some serious ass. When you’ve made it past the finish line, take a moment to think back to week 1 and appreciate how far you’ve come and be proud of yourself damn it!

It’s my 35th birthday today and to celebrate, I figured I’d pass along my New Chapter Jams mixtape since I can’t pass cake through the internet. To anyone else celebrating a birthday today (and all other days), I wish you a year of great things, amazing music and lots of happiness.
DJ Zebra deserves a standing ovation for this INSANE mashup of Nine Inch Nails “Closer” and The Beatles “Come Together”. Seriously dope.
Week 8 and 28 minutes of time devoted to you and doing something great for yourself. I’ve got some great jams to help get you through it so lace up your shoes, get your head in the game during the 5 minute walking warmup and then get ready to go all out.
