Well my friends, the heat in NYC right now is ridic, but I recorded a new podcast for week 4 and just got back from taking it for a test run. I gotta say, the music is pretty fierce, which is great because I needed it to distract my attention from my heavy breathing.

We’re starting with our usual 5 minute walking warm-up and then head into 3 minutes of jogging, 90 seconds of walking, 5 minutes of jogging, 2 and a half minutes of walking, 3 minutes of jogging, 90 seconds of walking and finishing strong with another 5 minute run into a 5 minute cool down. Now sissy that run hunties!
It might be a chilly 48 degrees here in Brooklyn today, but this weekend is supposed to climb into the 60’s so this little running ball of chub will be taking her running shoes to the streets and listening to the most recent version of my Couch to 5k Week 3 podcast.
This time, we’ll be doing our usual 5 minute walking warmup followed by 90 seconds of jogging, 90 seconds of walking, 3 minutes of jogging and 3 minutes of walking. The intervals are so nice, we’ll be doing them twice.

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).

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.
