I was thrown off of my running this week and will not be able to recover before I go out of town. I had planned on doing my runs Mon-Wed-Fri, as usual. I head to Omaha on Saturday. However, Mother Nature had other plans!

I waited around most of the late afternoon/evening for these storms to hit the road, but they never did.

So, I headed to the basement to do the Turbo Jam Fat Blaster DVD. It’s cardio that features intervals, so I thought that would be closest to the interval training I’d have been doing with the Couch to 5k plan.

If you’re familiar with Turbo Jam, you know that the high intensity interval — which usually last anywhere from 60-90 seconds — is called the “turbo”. And you know it’s starting because a siren sounds. The Fat Blaster workout features nothing but turbos. The funny part tonight was that when one of the sirens went off, a tornado siren started going off as well. That messed me up because I cracked up laughing. What a coincidence!

Anyway, I’m running out of days to get things done before I leave! I’m going to work on the Week 5 Couch to 5k podcast, but I can’t promise I’ll get to Week 6 before I leave. So I may be going on “hiatus” until I return from Omaha after July 7th.
