Graduated some time ago but need something else to keep me going!

I graduated some time ago and can run reasonably comfortably for 30-40minutes, but never achieving 5k (more like 3k)! However, I feel I could do with the support of a podcast to get me back on track as I feel I'm not pushing myself and need somebody to listen to and tell me 'you can really do this'. So my question to all you fellow runners is : is there an app/podcasts that I can download to push me past my comfort zone and get me running the 10k which still feels very out of reach at the mo ;(

  • Have you tried the 5K+ podcasts?

    Here's a link:

  • Also the RunDouble app might be worth a look.

  • Have you started the distance version Fingalo? Just done w4r2 which is 3.2km -legs knackered but really enjoying focusing on distance rather than time.

  • This looks interesting. I dont have an android, but found a description on the coolrunning website. I'm going to give this a go as I'm stuck at running just over 4k most of the time. Soooo I'm going to try 4.4km this week. Wish me luck!

  • Definitely wishing you good luck. This distance version is apparently the original version so should be available elsewhere.

  • I've still to complete this thing Peabs but that's next on my agenda as I really want to be able to run my local 5k parkrun.

    Am looking forward to giving it a lash though.

  • Hi. Well done on completing C25k. I started a 10k training programme this morning, which many people seem to be following on here. It's the Bridge 2 10k programme, which I downloaded from itunes. The one I downloaded is the Bluefin one, not sure if that's the only one but it seems quite good and has got me 'back on track' and focussing again.

  • I have just looked at this app, thanks to your advice, will look on itunes and get it downloaded. Thanks, I will keep you posted.
