Team c25k finale photo for 5x50 challenge

Team c25k finale photo for 5x50 challenge

Apologies to c25k undergraduates - the 5x50 challenge went on from 31st March to 19th May, and a group of c25kers did 5k run/walk/cycle or something else for 30 minutes every day. It was brilliant, and the team rapport really helped to keep the motivation going.

So here's our finale composite team picture. I'll email everyone in it a copy. :)

(For more info on the challenge, which will run again next spring, see 5x50.co.uk )

Sue - do you want to write a bit for 5x50 to go with it, or shall I just put in on the facebook page, with a brief summing up?

Well done everyone involved! I was frantically waving the pom poms from the side-lines. I really hope I can join you mad lot next time.

Major congrats to all of you. You are my inspiration! X

I know for absolutely sure that many of us that did the challenge really struggled with week 1 of c25k. And now we can do crazy things like 50 days of 30 minutes exercise - and some people even did half marathons, or consecutive days of 10ks!

I would love to do this but it is slap bang in the middle od term time and the run up to GCSEs and A Levels. As a teacher it is never going to happen :(

The first week was in the Easter holidays (though admittedly that does move around a lot!) I'm a teacher too, though not full-time now. Doing 30 minutes exercise every day is a great way to get away from the stresses and have a mental break. When I was working fulltime I know it wasn't healthy the way that I was often working solidly for something like 14 hours a day, sometimes more. Crazy! :O You could always do your own offline version and just do 15 minutes a day or something? Hope you get to do some running sometimes anyway. :)
