Is the music better in Week 3?

Has anyone else found the week 2 music to be a little uninspiring and a bit too slow? I really enjoyed week 1's "greatest day" and I like week 2's "i'm stronger than them" but I'm hoping week 3 is more like week 1, motivating and fast paced.

The music changes throughout the programme and you will find some you love and some you hate - you can look forward to anticipation to the "plodding song" in week 4 and the "I am going to eat you for dinner song" in week 8

Can't remember but I am sure week 3 will be different again to week2...

I've just finished week 8 and I was obviously not paying much attention to the music at moments as I don't remember the eating you for dinner lyrics...just as well probably! ;-)

You and Julie is a different story altogether... ;-)

Oh. Maybe it is week 9!! Sorry to put a #spoiler in!!! Oh and Julie is there to enjoy week 9 too!

I start week 9 on friday and will listen out for those lyrics...slightly cannibalistic that they seem!! ;-)

I honestly think it says "I'm a killer I'll eat you up for dinner"

Eat you for dinner song???? Must've missed that one ha ha! :)

The music drove me nuts during the programme but now I am 6 runs post graduation- all done to my own playlists- I really kinda miss it.

I find myself humming "You & Julie" at totally random moments! That's probably one you've yet to experience.....

You know how sometimes things get worse before they get better? Well, welcome to week 3!

Greatest Day is my fav track so far

I gave up to the podcasts because the music just wasn't to my taste. Now I play my own tunes with my timer running in the background. Yes you lose out on Laura, but I'm used to that now, and the positive of tunes I love far outweighs not having her there for motivation.

I do think picking the music must have been a really difficult task though, the people using the podcast are so so very varied. And I presume there's a lot of importance put on BPM and other such technical things to give as much help as they can.

Might give the podcast another go for week 9 though, just to hear the lyrics about eating people!

I'm the king baby!!

lol sometimes I find myself chuckling to the music, but I guess its got to appeal to such a wide audience it must have been hard to chose the soundtrack to go with C25K.

Its going to be strange when I'm finished C25K and I've got to sort my own tracks out.

I thought the music was pretty rubbish really but some of it was funny like "you and Julie" ( my fave) But It would be a hard job getting tracks to suit every taste and every pace I suppose! :)
