Graduation badge April 2016

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

I had completed the weeks and the 5K before joining as I'm part of a running club, can I still qualify for the graduate badge?  Same with the 10K!

Dear Realfoodieclub, I completed my third run of week 9 this morning. I'm really looking forward to getting my graduation badge. This is a great programme and I'm really proud of the progress I have made in a relatively short space of time. Many thanks.

Completed week9, run3 last week. I started this course in the middle of January and it was a real struggle to run/jog for one minute, and now I'm running slowly for 30 minutes.. i have been following all the advice on here and agree that running has been a good habit and I love it!  

Moving forward I intend to work on increasing speed and distance, and hope to run a park  run once I am happy with running 5k.

It's there again.  I have no idea what happens when they disappear and then come back.  Must be a glitchy thing.  At least it's back now.   I notice you say "have I been bad". Do you not know😉.  Hehe.

Hi Realfoodieclub. Yes I completed the whole podcast and did the three runs in week 9, 30 minutes each year. At that point, with the walking I covered about 4 K. Today we the second run after completion of the podcast and I managed to cover 5k, all non stop running in 37 minutes, quite Chuffed!!.

I'd love a badge if you can help me get one.

Thank you.

Thanks Realfoodieclub. It still doesn't seem true. Last run yesterday morning, on the treadmill, I could have thrown the towel in after a few minutes, citing to myself that I was tired and not up to it. (it was 7am). Carried on and ran my first ever 5k! Unbelievable. It's those pesky gremlins, I know them individually!!
