Graduation Badge July 2015

Hi there

Congratulations on your graduation. Please leave your username here for me or OlsBean so we can organise your well deserved graduation badge. we will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great they feel when they arrive.

I would like to clarify the position of earning your graduation badge. To get your badge you will of completed the full training podcasts and be able to run for 30 min. It does NOT matter if you can not run 5km, you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

So it is fair to everybody please do not ask for your badge until you have completed week 9 run 3.

Realfoodieclub and OlsBean

Every few days I will clear the posts to make way for the new graduates

Hi, I would like to claim my graduation badge from you, I have now completed all the podcasts and run 3 times for 30 mins constantly.

Is there also a c25k poster you could email over to me? So I can show my doctor and pinup on the board in the waiting room.

Thanks, davelinks

There was absolutely no delay on your part. I didn't mean to imply there was so I'm really if it reads like that. I only posted late yesterday. Many thanks for the time you invest in doing this :)

Reply

Thank you, your post didn't read that way at all, I was just conscious that I was well behind with giving the badges and I felt bad about it.

Me too...Week 9 Run 3 completed!

Now enjoying running to a 165 BPM playlist and amazing managed a 10k this weekend. Not sure what's wrong with me.

Now I'm feeling less self conscious, I may even turn up to a Parkrun (now that I know what one is).
