Stop telling me what to do๐Ÿ˜„

I finished C25K two weeks ago and Iโ€™ve enjoyed pootling along at my own pace. On Friday I got lost - well not exactly lost, a footpath was closed so I carried on and then realised the paths were going the wrong way๐Ÿค”. So I back tracked and when I got home I found Iโ€™d gone over 7.5k (it was meant to be a 4k run). It was my longest run but I was fine and really enjoyed it. Yesterday I thought Iโ€™d try the stepping stone podcast and, disregarding the music ๐Ÿ˜, I found that I think Iโ€™m fed up with someone telling me what to do in my earhole ๐Ÿ˜‚. C25K was great but thatโ€™s enough school time for me ๐Ÿ˜„. Itโ€™s ju-juโ€™s plan all the way for me now (thatโ€™s easy to say cos I havenโ€™t even started yetโ˜บ๏ธ).

Good luck, its a fun program...I put a chart up on my fridge and ticked the runs off as I did them..Very satisfying.

It's a great programme and you will do it fine, having done 7k already.

I hate those NHS+ podcasts so much. I've tried them several times but find them genuinely unbearable. The woman sounds laconic and patronising, and the music makes my skin crawl, and occasionally laugh out loud. Just needed to vent. Sorry. As you were.

Well I'm afraid she's not terribly motivating for me... I'm clearly in the minority though! But it's the music that makes me rage mostly. It makes me want to tear my ears off.

Yes Iโ€™m fed up with the voice now too. The reminders are annoying and too frequent! Iโ€™ve just got 1k pace updates on MapMyFitness instead. Well done. Juju for me too.
