I have no idea. I am not aware of what kind it is or what it can do besides downloading music and playing it back. That is all I have done with it so far.

When the "newness" wore off and I quit exercising, I "set it aside".

Now I have to find it so I can start using it again!

Thanks to all of you on this thread I know what to do to get the C25K added.

I guess I can go in to a service location and ask about applications. If mine does not have that capacity at least the clerks will have another customer they can laugh at after I leave!

Then I can "leave them laughing" which is OK by me.

They will get their comeuppance when they are older and need to use some "new fangled" technology!

You didn't say what kind of iPod you have but if you have the iPod touch or iPhone you can purchase an app for C25k. That way you can play your own music and it beeps when your supposed to walk/run. My app also tells me whe. I'm at the halfway point so I can turn back home.

Hey there :)

I prefer hip hop/r&B music so I use Suz's podcasts (www.kissmyblackass.org) and just right click on her podcasts for each week. They automatically download to the folder I choose on my desktop PC, then when its done I just drag it into my itunes and sync with my ipod.

Hope this helps! Robert Ullrey's are great too and they are free through his website or itunes, but I prefer something that is less like house/trance music and more my own style.

I hope you get it sorted, the podcasts help SO much in the first 4 weeks when the intervals are shorter.

YESS!!! That worked...I'm so excited!!


There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

If you have a iPod product, you can go directly to iTunes

Find the podcast catagory on the left side

Type Robert Ullrey in the search line

or type in running

it will take you to the various podcast available through itunes for running. They are free. you then click and select the ones you want.

Once that selection has been'loaded' into your 'purchased' items. you can click on it to drag and drop it into your ipod. Your ipod should be connect during this process and you should see it in the iTunes left hand menu. Click, drag and drop the item you want into that feature.

Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Fierce and Be Fabulous!

Be the kind of woman you are inspired by!

This is my day, my hour, my minute, my time is here, now!

Hey Springbelle!
It's me - one of your 3/1 C25Ker's! I had to go through all that this morning while I was getting ready for our big day!
I don't have an IPOD - just a cheapo mp3 player, but I downloaded the podcast to my windows media player, then plugged in my mp3 to my computer, clicked "sync" on the windows media player, chose the podcast to sync (move over to the mp3 player) and then hit sync and it was on my mp3 player. Hope it works that easy for the IPOD (I'm sure it does - my son has one and loves it).

And oh yeah, at the top of the page there is a thing for MP3's, but I have no idea if that is different!

Ok, I am not a geek in any sort of computer way...but that might be ok as I will put this is as I would normally say it so you may understand!
First, do you have iTunes? I think you need iTunes for your iPod, I think...
Go here: http://www.ullreys.com/robert/Podcasts/pod
casts/podcasts.html
Click on 'Podcast' under the week you want (you do not need to right-click).
Hit 'open' and it should start to download.
Once it downloads iTunes should open and then you can plug in your iPod and it should automatically go on there (unless you have it set to manually go on to your iPod)...I think it is usually automatic, though.
When I first did it I downloaded all Podcasts and some seem to delete themselves from iTunes, so it may be easier to do one at a time.
I hope this helps!!!! If not, just ignore me!!!!

I went out on the internet to try to get the C25K weeks downloaded to my computer library so I could then transfer them to my ipod.

Yes, I have an ipod (somewhere) that would work great for the walk/run changes for the C25K plan.

I thought I downloaded every single week, but each week was on my desktop like a little mini MP3 that I could not figure out how to download to my windows media player (or wherever it needs to go).

Do you have to "subscribe" to get them? Does that cost money?

Is there something I need to do special to get them on my ipod?

I am at a loss and only have 1 week to go before I begin the C25K plan.

Help, I need somebody, no, not just anybody, help I need a techno geek right now!

Oh yeah, please explain what I need to do in simple steps for the technologically impaired.

Bless your little Einstein brain!
