W4R1 help, save me from Laura's music!

Just completed W4R1. Can't quite believe I ran for 5 whole minutes, twice! Found the first 5 minutes really hard, but the second 5 minutes weren't quite so bad, and the 3 minute runs in between felt much better than they did last week.

Only problem being Laura's taste in music is getting more bizarre by the week! Running technique is not helped by being distracted wondering who on earth picked the music, although when I think I must have done 4 minutes and Laura tells me ive done 2 and a half, any distraction is welcomed. 😄

  • Ah yes, the music. I'm not to comment on the music any more. But yes. I'd rather chew my feet off.

  • It's character forming.

  • Think of the music as a rite of passage. You'll know you're ready to graduate when you meet Julie (again!)

  • Just let the music flow.... one day you may be glad of it!:)

    Onwards and upwards...Week 4 Run 2...

    PS Ignore Rignold... he is biased where Laura's music is concerned... and he wouldn't chew his feet off, he needs them for all the amazing things he does... he is brilliant! :)

  • I did the podcast for 6 weeks and then couldn't take the music any more. Never heard the (in)famous Julie but I graduated all the same 😊

  • I think I listened to Laura's music once and that was more than enough! I have no idea who Julie is either!

  • Well done! I know what you mean about Laura's timekeeping, though - it's like falling through a hole into a special "running" universe where minutes are much longer than they are in the normal world.

  • I found the  music quite hypnotic, in that I mean I could do what was needed on that run. I still use the podcasts when I'm struggling a  bit, they always carry me through.

  • Every bit of C25K I've done so far I credit to Laura - must be her because it can't be me.

    I'm not a fan of her musical choices but she's the boss so she gets to choose the tunes.
