Chubby Jones C25k Week 8 V4 Podcast

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.

Interview with Health and Fitness Expert Yuri Elkaim


Yuri Elkaim

And now for a Chubby Jones first: I had the pleasure of interviewing health, fitness, and nutrition expert, Yuri Elkaim. The former pro soccer player is also the New York Times best selling author of The All-Day Energy Diet and The All-Day Fat Burning Diet.

I know that, like me, a lot of runners got into the Couch to 5k program as part of an exercise and diet plan – so I wanted to ask Yuri for his expert advice to help aid us in our health goals. He provided some great info, including ways to exercise smarter, things to avoid, and the best news about carbs I’ve heard in a long time (and gives me the perfect excuse to use my Oprah gif again)


You can find out more about Yuri at his website,

And while you enjoy that, I’ll be working on Week 8 version 4, hitting your nearest iTunes this weekend!

Podcast: Couch to 5k Week 5 Version 4

Hiyeeee friends, family, acquaintances, strangers and even any enemies who still listen to my podcasts! I’m alive and now living in Seattle, where the air is fresher, the people are Midwestern-levels nice and they have these amazing things called trees!

I apologize for being out of touch and not getting some new podcasts your way until now, but…life. Also, I had a hell of a time trying to find (free) music good enough for my runners, but I am pretty sure this latest mix will have been worth waiting for.

It’s time to get your sweet little buns moving to this Week 5 C25k Podcast.

We’re doing our usual 5 minute walking warm-up followed by 3 sets of 5 minutes running & 3 minutes jogging. Special shouts out to Chris T and Jessica for their tweets to let me know you all are still listening and wanting more!

Chubby Jones Couch to 5k Podcast Week 4 Version 4

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.
