The Chubby Jones Podcast
Workout podcasts for beginning runners to get off your butt and start moving.

I'm back with another podcast for you all and in order to switch things up a bit (if you choose to do so), we'll be running sprints every 5th minute. We start out with a 3 minute walking warmup and then we go right into the 80 minute run. Obviously, use your best judgement when it comes to the sprints. If you do every other one, that's fantastic too. If you don't do any of them, it's all good my friends.

The music accompanying us on our run this time is as follows and can all be downloaded at either, or the artist websites.

The Hood Internet - Just Wanna Dance Yrslf Clean (Jay-Z vs. LCD Soundsystem) 


Kings of Leon (Use Somebody Remix)

Har Mar Superstar - Tall Boy

Oh boy, get ready for 25 minutes of non-stop running! Since you have no breaks for this run, please make sure you keep your breathing and your pace in check. Get to the end of that finish line even if you have to go more slowly than usual. I know you can do it!

Wow, week 5 interval 3 is no joke. We're running for a full 20 minutes today. Now, before you go for a box of tissues to wipe away your tears, please keep in mind that you do not need to sprint this or even go as fast as maybe you have on some of your other interval runs. If you're jogging at a 3.0 pace, that's ok - just keep picking up your feet. All you can ask of yourself is to give it your all.


Our music for this run is pretty great (in my humble opinion). It comes courtesy of RCRDLBL, Dance Yourself to Death and Groove Armada.

The Heavy - How You Like Me Now

Hot Chip - Take It In

Dance Yourself to Death - Midnight Affair (Y&R Remix)

Steve Aoki - Green Velvet - Shake and Pop featuring Kid Sister

My dogs, Marshall and Bubble stared at me like I was crazy the entire time, but we got through it and hopefully they aren't too traumatized. At least I didn't do it with only shorts and a sports bra on.
