Audio Podcasts for C25K and more...

Hi all...

For all those working there way through C25K, for info I have uploaded various podcasts to my OneDrive account to share if anyone is having problems locating them :-)

I first posted this info many months ago...but thought it may be useful for new starters. Just click on the links or copy them to your browser and you should be able to download the audio files for transfer to your phone or MP3 device..



Samantha B210K

Bluefin B210K

Thank you very much.

I have downloaded Samantha and am ready to go....

Just one question, is there a week 6 podcast? Posts I have seen elsewhere seem to suggest that there should be. No rush for me though, I don't expect I will need it very soon. I think I will take longer than 6 weeks over this.

Hi, tried to search the internet to see if there was a week 6 podcast, but sorry no luck confirming either way. Looks like this program was created many years ago.

Thank you so much for sending this to me.🌟

In a couple of weeks on finishing wk 9 and I am considering for the sheer pleasure of taking a further 9 weeks to repeat everything with Laura and her original podcasts.🏃‍♂️Of course not as a Newbie, but I will still be cheering from the sidelines.👏👏

After GA and new shoes and a right knee that will come to the party, 🤔 Laura may cut me a little bit of slack and allow me to push on a bit during the runs and pick-up my pace🤔👏👏

At the moment I am very comfortable with applying Michael’s running form, but he has been easy on me😴😴

This is certainly a very patient option for me ,as well as I’m sure an unbelievable experience in the company of Laura,having only listened to the first 5 min warm-up walk and one minute run.🌟

Of course I listened to the misunderstood wk 2.1, run on your heel 🤔, get a life and a brain.🙈😂😂.

Thanks to Andy and especially you.🌟

I have enjoyed doing the programme in isolation and just from the Stone Age, so imagine the treat with Laura, not to mention maybe being able to progress to a current experience with all mod cons.👏👏

I better go and lay down.🙈🙈😂😂

Should be all back to normal now :-)

I think when some people access these files they inadvertently delete them.. but I have a backup :-)

Thank You very much! :-)

AndyD, long ago I worked up to my first 10K with the Sami Murphy B210K. I am now desperately searching for them again to rekindle my love for running. Your folder no longer has the whole set, but just one run from week 5. Any chance you could take a look?

All should be back to normal now... but let me know if you cant access anything :-)

Hi sorry to bother but the regular download is down and Stamina (the one I use) is missing from the folder

AndyD profile image
AndyDGraduate in reply to Folksriker

Hi, I'll take a look at the links as soon as I can. I put the links up originally many years ago, glad to hear they're still of interest.

Leave it with me 👍

Hi Andy!

Thank you so much for your help.

We are having a bit of a problem because the links to download the podcasts have stopped working on the NHS website.

I put up a quick post to explain the situation, and included a link to your post and dropbox - but I wasn't sure if you were still active on the site - hope you don't mind?!?

Hi, I have just moved all the folders/files over to Google and they are uploading now (may take an hour or so). Think I had an issue with the old Dropbox links.

Let me know if there are any further problems.

All the best

Hi Andy - can you please provide a link to the original NHS couch to 5K that seems to be now unavailable, thank you!

AndyD profile image
AndyDGraduate in reply to Spydeco68

Hi.. I'm away on a short break for a few days so will check all is available when I get back. I thought all was OK now.

Spydeco68 profile image

Thanks so much. Someone else sent me this link but it does not seem to include the *original* Laura Couchto5K - the one with Julie music etc. Much appreciated!
