The Couch to 80k Writing Boot Camp
I made a free 8-week fiction writing course in podcast form.

48 daily episodes, each with a 10 minute writing exercise, to take you from wherever you are with your writing, to being ready to finish your novel. It's aimed at all experience levels and is meant to be low-commitment, fun, and motivating. It's all available to stream or download for free.
Role: Writer, presenter

So excite! I'll clear some time out this evening to get started.

to clarify: can I run while I listen? because Couch to 80k Novel via Half Marathon would be perfect for me right now

I think that's not the kind of exercise being discussed here:
WARNING: BEFORE YOU START. This is an active participation podcast. If you want to just kick back and relax, by all means listen to the other episodes of Death Of 1000 Cuts, where I ramble and swear amiably about writing. But DO NOT listen to this course without doing the exercises. You’ll be shortchanging yourself and missing a real chance to get good, and motivated, and change your writing forever. Try the first episode. All I’m asking is 10 minutes of writing from you. I spent months writing and recording this course. Are you willing to try for 10 minutes to see if it suits you?

I just started this too. Did days 1 & 2, and liking it so far. Different from what I expected, in a good way.
