It's the day you've all been waiting for. The Couch to 5k+ podcasts are now available on iTunes or on NHS Choices at nhs.uk/Livewell/c25k/Pages/...
I got the news at 8.24 this morning and I was astonished to read when I came to the community as soon as I got in to work that GoogleMe has already done a run to them! You guys are amazing.
There are three podcasts in the Couch to 5k+ series.
1. The Stepping Stone podcast, a 30-minute continuous run designed for recent Couch to 5K graduates
2. The Speed podcast, a 16-minute run alternating fast and slow sections specifically designed to improve your speed.
3. The Stamina podcast, a 35-minute run with music to keep you running at a faster pace for longer.
We've also launched our Strength and Flex series of podcasts. These are again on iTunes or you can get them from NHS Choices at nhs.uk/Livewell/strength-an...
The Strength and flexibility series consists of five 35- to 45-minute podcasts. Starting with podcast 1, your goal is to work your way up to podcast 5 in five weeks. To achieve this, you need to do each podcast at least three times in a week.
We are in the process of setting up a new community to go with the Strength and Flex series and I'd like your thoughts on whether we do the same for Couch to 5k+. HealthUnlocked are looking what they can do to create a separate area within this community for Couch to 5k+ discussions but it's quite difficult to do at the moment. Would you prefer a new community to talk about Couch to 5k+ or are you happy to stay within this community?
We hope you enjoy both sets of podcasts and they help you carry on the journey you began with Couch to 5k. And of course, let us know what you think of them. I know you will!
