Interval 2Here we go, it's interval #2 time and I know it looks menacing - but you just need to kick its butt before it kicks yours, right? RIGHT!

Today's music came almost completely from with some special help from Visit those sites, often - there is nothing but good music on both of them.
Weird Tapes - My Babe Walk
Estelle feat. Kanye vs. The Ting Tings
Wallpaper vs. Little Boots
Rick Ross vs. Hercules & Love Affair
Ke$ha vs. YACHT
Biz Markie vs. Phoenix

Interval 3Wow, 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
Groove Armada - I Won't Kneel (Treasure Fingers Epicwave Radio Edit)
Hexes & Ohs - Whadaya Know
