Unfortunately, the podcast host I use to publish to iTunes hasn’t updated my storage like they should have, but even if I had all my storage for the month, it wouldn’t be enough for this Week 8 Couch to 5k Podcast (right click “save as”), because it is packed with JAMZZZ!
I didn’t want to make you wait any longer, so while I try to figure out my storage situation, you can get your run on.
Start with your 5 minute walking warm-up, and then get your head together to run/jog/walk/twerk for the next 28 minutes.
We’ve made it to week 7 and considering the political shit-storm currently happening (I’m sure you feel it regardless of which candidate you’re rooting for) it’s the perfect time to channel your rage into something positive – like accomplishing your goals and getting healthy!
We’ll be doing our regular 5 minute walking warm-up, followed by 25 minutes of nonstop running! Lace up them shoes, stretch it out and get ready to leave behind any limiting beliefs you brought with you because you’re about to kick some serious ass.
I’ve been doing a lot of meditating recently. I don’t know if it’s because I finally reached the age where I’m ok with alone time, or because I’m trying to deal with all the changes happening at once in my life in a way that doesn’t turn me into the shorter, less-green version of The Incredible Hulk, the insane dark dark darkness of this time of year, or what – but I’ve actually enjoyed it, and somehow came to a few realizations that I hope you don’t mind me including in this podcast.
If you do mind, distract yourself by staring at this cute picture of my mom’s cat, Willow:
This week we’re starting with our 5 minute walking warm-up then heading into a 5 minute jog, 3 minutes of brisk walking, 8 minutes of jogging, 3 minutes of that brisk walking and 5 minutes of jogging followed by a cool-down. Also, just like Week 5, there are actually three different intervals you’ll be running this week, but unfortunately, I don’t have the space to upload more podcasts to my host for this month, so if you don’t mind, please use the ones from previous versions which you should be able to find riiiiiiiight here. If you do mind, refer back to Willow. Meow.
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!
Your new Couch to 5k podcast is up and ready to help get your sweet behind moving. This week, we’ll start with our usual 5 minute walking warmup then go into intervals of 90 seconds jogging and 2 minutes walking, for a total of 20 minutes. Don’t forget to cool down, stretch and most importantly, when you’re done:
