I've just joined the forum having just completed week 6! (Yay!) I wish I had found it before!! Anyway I was surprised how many people put up with the music on the podcasts - I downloaded the free app and that allows you to play your own music and just turns the volume down when Laura comes on. All the podcasts are also on it and it keeps track of when you complete each run. I just felt I should point out that there is another option!!
