Couch to 5K

Gone off the Boil

Have just graduated and have been out twice since. Still manage my 30 minutes (just) albeit at a fairly slow pace. But without the challenge feel rather deflated. What next? Although I have a race for life in 3 weeks and need to run for another 5 mins or so to get that sorted I'm not sure how to make it a challenge again. With Laura it was exciting. Now it's a bit of a chore. What do you all think?

You need silky Steve ( Audiofuel) , he will definitely sort you out. It's great beats and helps you improve. It's on the C25k + and do that if you haven't already. Don't give up its just the beginning!

Where do you find Steve? I still have Laura on C25K+.

iTunes... Audiofuel .. He's 8.99 per hour quite cheap!

How do I know which one it is? There are a fair few on there if I just type in Audiofuel.

It's run free the first hour 150- 165 BPM. Hope you find it- sorry I wasn't very clear was I!!!

RIGHT! Found him; downloaded him and will be out with him on Sunday. Thanks so much. Really needed something else....lets hope silky Steve will be the answer!!

Excellent I think you will like him and his beats, good luck and happy running!

Are these the stepping stone, speed and stamina podcast??

They are done in conjunction with Audiofuel but then you can buy Audiofuel separately and that's when you get silky Steve instead of lovely Laura. He's a bit harder than her but does still encourage you.

He's hilarious on Pyramid 180 - "Steel yourself to go" and "Recover as best you can" "Walk if you need to"

'You are officially in the long run zone' ... Can't wait for that one (after 1.5 hours)

please don't give up, you have come so far...have a look at the 'parkrun' page see if anything there takes your fancy and runners world do a C25K graduation t-shirt to wear with pride at your race for life (although think they only do red not pink!) Good luck with that too it is a really good day out and for a really good cause :-)
