Podcast times

Completed week 7 run 3 today however noticed problem with length of run, the 25 min run on the podcast is actually lasting 37 min!! I have checked it 3 times with stopwatch, is anyone else having this issue. is it my MP3 player?

Good news is I have run for 37 min 3 times this week, did think these runs seemed long but managed. will use watch in future and not rely only on podcast.

The 37 mins includes your warm up and cool down walks.


no this was only the run time, on timing the warm up walk this was 7 min not 5 min. I took the time from being told to start running to being told to walk. I only noticed on the run because I had a watch on and the times were not matching and on returning home I have listened and timed the podcast and it is running slow this may just be download problem with my mp3 but I plan to time some of the other podcast just to see. However it is a great programme and if I am running a bit over that's fine.

Are you using the zen labs app? I used that one and yes for some reason once got int week 7 the run part was as you say 37 mins. What I did was use zombie run, which I love and was my motivation for the couch to 5 k . You can set each episode to the length you want and if you run over it goes to radio mode. 


thanks all, I was using the current NHS version however week 7 and 8 when timed were incorrect, thanks to poppypug answering another's question I have found a link to the 2010 podcast which I have downloaded and timed, it is correct. so all set to go out and do week 8 run 1 this pm
