I also use Rebert's pod cast. They're fantastic. I love not having to bring a watch.

Have a go-to healthy snack? A delectable recipe you dreamed up or borrowed from your friend?
I want to learn how to eat and cook healthy. Send me your tips and recipes! I will welcome them and be very grateful!

I use the iTunes C25K app - its great. and keeps track of when you did which run (if you are like me and keep going camping and missing a week at a time because you don't want to run around the bears).

it runs with my own music.

You can find hip hop tunes on www.kissmyblackass.org otherwise garageband is awesome to make your own podcasts if you don't have an ipod.

I used ones called Christian Indie that are some Christian music but independent artists, not the big names. They weren't what I would necessarily go out and buy, but for me they worked well. SOme of the podcasts I checked out were either rap or techie music that I didn't like. I wish I could find one with disco, classic rock, or something like that. But the guy Chris, that leads you through the changes has a really nice encouraging voice that I liked.

Here's a link to those podcasts

The one I use is from a page called Go Nicole Yourself. I guess Nicole made them up herself, and I love them because of the variety of music. The song changes everytime the interval changes. She also has two or three different playlists for each week up through week 7, so you can change it up and have a different playlist for each run. Week 7 and 8 only have one, and there is none for week 9, but I'm really enjoying the rest of them! Here is the link:

I started with Robert Ullrey's podcast and then downloaded another one (a woman) I can't remember.

I downloaded c25k app and the Get Running app. The Get Running app is my favorite because I can use my own music. It seems to work best for me. I have an ipod touch.

I also use Robert Ullrey's because I don't have an Ipod. I just use my ordinary mobile phone. It allows me to download a bit of music, and one weeks podcasts just fits.

I thought it would be nice if we could post what podcast we are using for new members to find one they like instead of using the first one they find. I just found a new one which I might start using I will put the link below I look forward to seeing what everyone is using and if you have a comment about the podcast you are using please share. Thanks everyone :D
