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.
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.
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.
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!
Somehow we’ve managed to make it to the last weeks of February so it’s about time my intro to 2014 mix made it to the blog. I’ve been busy searching for jobs, accepting a new job (I start next Monday!!!) and finding some sweet jams to bring some warmth to the icy snowy mess we’ve been dealing with this winter.
Another task on my to-do list for today will be to finish version 3 of my week 8 couch to 5k podcast for you all. I am signing up for the Brooklyn Color Run taking place July 5th, so if you’re in the area and want to run with me, let’s turn this mother out!
