August Graduation Badge 2016

Hi there

Congratulations on your graduation. Please leave your username here for me or Poppypug 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.

Hi there,

I've been too shy to post but have been religiously following this fantastic forum for a while, and heeding all the very sound advice.

Anyway, I did my final C25k run this morning; I don't know what was in the air today but I ran for 45 mins and covered 6.4k, quite a bit further than I've ever managed before.

So I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself (read 'smug') and please may I have a badge?

I am very grateful for C25k. What a wonderful life-changing thing it has been for me. I finished it a couple of months ago, actually. I feel like a proper graduate now that I can run the full 5k, although I was genuinely thrilled to bits just to be able to run slowly for 30 mins by the end of week nine. I've now done some Parkruns and am looking forward to the Perth Kilt Run on Saturday.

Ooh please may I apply for my badge? I completed my last run of week none on August 13th with 5.29 km., in 41 minutes. It's documented via the Runtastic app,.

I've since managed the graduate Stepping Stones plan but will keep up with these over the next few weeks.

Really pleased with the NHS Couch to 5k plan, have recommended it fulsomely to any one who will listen.

With many thanks and best regards

Louise

Completed W9 beginning of August and have since run 2 Parkruns. I struggled on W1 and didn't think I'd ever make W9. I'm 68 and haven't run for years. Now I feel so much more active. Great program.
