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!

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”)
I’ve been a bad podcaster lately and for that I apologize. Life, ya know? Totally gets in the way a lot of the time. You may ask, “Mia, have you figured out what you want to be when you grow up since you’ve been ‘so busy’ with your time?”. Sadly, the answer is still no but only because there are even more things I want to do now than I did in the past. In fact, I’m pretty sure I can add “Super Sleuth” to possible future professions thanks to my desire to hunt down and kick the shit out of the assholes who have repeatedly used my stolen identity information to open up credit lines in my name regardless of there being fraud flags listed on my social security number. I’m fairly certain I’ve tracked one of the offenders down – now it’s up to the respective fraud agencies to see if they want to go after them.
This has also made me want to speak with someone in the government about doing a better job of protecting consumers. Considering the technology available these days, I find it very hard to believe it’s too difficult for any companies handing out credit to figure out whether someone is using a child’s social security number in order to get a credit card. I also think it’s ridiculous that grocery stores are able to scan your driver’s license to make sure it’s valid and you are of age, but other retailers don’t have the same scanners to ensure someone maxing out the credit card they just applied for is who they say they are. Who do I speak to about this?
Ok, I know, I’ll get off of my soap box for now and just give you the goods you’ve been patiently waiting for. Without further ado, here is week 4 version 3 of the Chubby Jones Couch to 5k Podcast (now brought to you in Soundcloud form, so just click the downward arrow to get it to your desktop):
