I briefly mentioned that I was updating some of my original Couch to 5k mixes to match more of what music I’m diggin’ lately. I wanted to give a little update on that. So far, I’ve successfully finished Week 1 and Week 3’s do-over podcasts. I prioritized Week 3 over Week 2 because I’m using Week 3 this week. As soon as I hit publish, I’ll be back to work on Week 2.

I promised a commenter (whose name escapes me right now. Sorry!) that I’d eventually provide a different podcast option for Week 2 due to my personal decision to include Black Eyed Peas’ “Let’s Get Retarded”. I really do “get it”. That word isn’t even in my vocabulary. I just like the song in it’s original format because that’s what I heard first. Plus I hate censored/radio mixes. But I do get it, so for those of you have been wanting something else, this is also for you. I do care.

For now, I wanted to share the playlists of these soon-to-be-shared podcasts, so you know what you’re dealing with. I told y’all that it would mostly be songs that are on perma-repeat on my iPod and that’s pretty much how this played out; well except for the ballads. Don’t know about y’all, but I can’t run to slow stuff!

Anyway, here goes! Yes, Week 2 is all over the place, but I think it might be more fun that way!
