Couch to 5K podcast, all 9 weeks

Quote  |  Reply
I apologize if it's been mentioned a dozen or more times.  I haven't perfected my searching skills on the forums to avoid dupes.  My holdout on starting the couch to 5k has my lack of desire to operate a stopwatch and run at the same time.  I foresaw face plants rather than a successful run.  So, I was geeked to find this.

There are mp3 podcasts as well that work with most standard mp3 players, for all of us that never jumped on the Apple wagon. html

There was a thread about the Couch to 5k plan, in which this was mentioned. That's I I've seen around.

anyway, the podcasts are great!
I'm starting the plan today!
I'm adding the mp3s to my ipod right now actually!
I checked it out.  I'm not a big dance music fan.  I make my own.

I made a webpage to explain how I do it.  It is pretty easy once you get the hang of the Audacity program.
I also really don't care for dance, but I figured I could live with it until I can run to the music I prefer.  So, thanks for the info about Audacity.  One day I'll have an afternoon to play with the program. 

I love the podcasts.. while I don't love the music. The beat is actually a bit slower than I'd prefer. It is usually just about a tenth of a second too slow for my prefered pace. But, I'm usually them anyway cause then I can't cheat at the time like I would if it were up to me. (like walking to the top of the next hill before starting the next running interval) with the podcasts I can lock my mp3 player so I gotta do exactly what he says. hehe
This is amazing!  Thank you so much - I'm just starting running, and I also didn't really want to carry a stopwatch, this is perfect.  :)

I created a Couch to 5K podcast, because I too loved the program, but didn't like music on the podcasts out there.  Check out my free Podcast/MP3 at It's been downloaded thousands of times, and some have even made it to my Wall of Fame!

Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Running!
