This is my first podcast from a stationary bike. I demonstrate the high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that is an important part of the New Strategy I have been developing and practicing since episode 70. I also take this opportunity to make a presentation on the show. Since there has been a lot of change since episode 0, this will make a better reference point for folks new to the show. So here is my summary of Running: A FEVER, using the 5 W’s:
What: It’s a podcast! You can get it on your favorite podcast catcher app on your phone. You can also listen and watch episodes at http://runningAFEVER.com. Video is available on YouTube, at http://runningAFEVER.com/YouTube.
Who: Michael Davis, a middle-aged guy who’s not a nutritionist, physical trainer, or medical professional. I have lost 80 pounds, lowered my blood pressure, decreased my pain, and improved my life in other ways.
Why: I love my life and I want to make it last as long as possible. That is why I exercise and do all of the other things I need to do to be in the best possible health. The podcast is part of that, because it motivates me to keep doing what I need to do. I also want to help other peoople get healthy and live full, active lives.
Where: Earth! I record mostly from my home area of Northwest Arkansas, which has abundant hiking and biking trails and other beautiful and wonderful resources. I have also recorded in Mississippi and Kentucky. Occasionall I record a special episode in a store or a doctor’s office, or the studio here at Running: A FEVER World Headquarters.
When: Now and henceforth, as long as possible. I have a long way to go in my health and life, and I hope to inspire others to improve for as long as I can. Episodes are released each Wednesday and Friday, and sometimes a special episode is released on Monday, especially when it is recorded in studio instead of during exercise.
