So I just started doing the C25K program, still in Week 1, and I am loving it!! The only downfall is I like to do most of my running outside, HATE the treadmill. This makes it difficult because it is harder to keep track of the times when running outside without the aid of the timer on the treadmill.
A friend at work told me about the C25K podcasts you can find on the internet that tell you when to run and walk. Has anyone tried these? Are the actually good music?

I have done three- the “main one”, can’t remember the name, I think that last nameis Ulrey, as well as the christian indie one and Chubby Jones podcasts. I am not a huge fan of any of the music, but the cues are so helpful that I don’t mind if the music isn’t great. The Chubby Jones has the most talking by far- lots of “one more minute dow, three to go!” which is what I like. I think the christian indie one has the best music, but I was in a Catholic rock band for 4 years, so I am biased.
If you have an iphone or ipod touch, there’s an app for about $3 that lets you use your own music with the reminders added in. I have a regular ipod so I can’t, but the podcasts are very helpful!

I just started tonight! I used the NHS British one that I found for free on itunes. I like that the music is timed/paced to when you’re walking/running, though I think the lady on there may get old.
